Additional PARCC Preparation Begins!
Now that it is official that all CPS schools must administer the PARCC assessments
in March and May, we are revving up in high gear to give our students as much
practice and preparation time as possible. We feel the additional practice will
improve their skill development and increase their stamina and confidence for
taking these important assessments. Read more here and please see the attached
schedule, here, for your child's teacher.
Put your child's name on the Skinner Marquee!
Looking for a unique Way to Say "Happy Birthday" to Your Child? Surprise
your child with an electronic greeting on the Skinner West marquee for only $25. Read
about NWEA Testing?
Your child's NWEA test scores were sent home with your child's report card. Please
find a copy of the information sheet accompanying your child's scores here. You
can also access Illinois specific information about NWEA standards here.
It’s Cookie Dough Fundraising Time!
The PTO is hosting our best and most profitable fundraiser! The Cookie Dough
from 2/23-3/11 to ensure delivery for report card pick-up day. Packets were scheduled
sent home with students on Wednesday. If you haven't received one, extra packets
found in the files near the elevator or in the main office (on the desk when
you walk in.)
All funds are due by 3/11 to ensure a delivery of cookie dough
for report card pick up day.
The funds raised go back to our Skinner Superstars whether in the classrooms,
computer programs (IXL/Achieve 3000), field trips, special projects, etc.
Parent volunteers are needed to help deliver items to the
classroom. Please contact Stephanie
Majca @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or can volunteer.
Skinner West is awarded with a 2013 National Blue Ribbon Award
