Illinois 5Essentails Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement

Parents: 5 Essentials Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
We are asking all parents and guardians to participate in a short survey on school climate and learning conditions at Warren CUSD 205. Information collected from the survey is used to guide future improvement planning, so strong participation rates are critical.
 
Parents are asked to complete one (1) survey for Warren Elementary if they have one or more children in grades PreK-5, and another for Warren Jr/Sr High School if they have one or more children in grades 6-12. It takes an average of 20 minutes to take the survey.
 
Please click the link below to complete the survey.

If you have questions or need support to complete the survey, please contact the District office.

Turtle Footstools

Turtle Power!

Here are the completed turtle footstools from Mr. Janecke’s 8th grade Construction mini class. The kids employed a variety of beginning construction techniques to create these beautiful works of functional art. They did a great job!

How many of you have a turtle in your house from previous classes?

Update Your Alert Settings with SchoolMessenger

As the weather gets colder and the possibility of weather delays or closings increases, we’d like to encourage everyone to take a few minutes to update their contact and preferences in our instant-alert system, SchoolMessenger.

We automatically load the home phone number and email address given to us at registration into SchoolMessenger. You have the option to add other email addresses, phone numbers, or cell phone numbers for text messaging and set the preferences for which category of call should be sent to either contact.

Some common scenarios include:

Image of notification options

  • Add your daycare provider to receive a text if school is delayed or cancelled (don’t worry, they’ll only receive one message per alert – even if multiple people add them to their account).
  • Add a grandparent (or other family member) who occasionally picks up or drops off your child to receive alerts.
  • Add your work email.
  • Add your cell phone as an SMS contact to receive text alerts instead of voice calls if you can’t always stop to listen to the audio message.
