Annually, Illinois conducts a climate survey for all public schools. This survey is called the 5Essentials Survey. We have an improvement team dedicated here at Warren Schools to review the results of the survey each year. Through this process, we reflect upon our current practices and develop action plans to better fulfill the needs of our school district team including the students, parents, staff, and community. Please take a moment of your time to take the 5Essentials Survey. If you have a student in each building, you may fill the survey out for each building. Reminder, our elementary school includes grades up through fifth-grade, while our junior/senior high school includes grades 6-12. The link to the survey will be sent out via email and text. Additionally, it can also be found on our school website or Facebook page. We thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy schedules to complete the survey.

We are happy to introduce our new Student Information System (SIS), Alma! Alma will replace InformationNow (aka INOW) this school year. After 2+ years of research, we chose Alma due to their forward-thinking mission and ease of use for teachers and parents. Over the summer, we migrated our data from InformationNow to Alma and we are (almost) all set to use it.
Here’s what you can expect with Alma from the start:
Mobile-friendly interface (so you can check grades and other info on your phone)
Updated user-interface so the things you’re looking for are easier to find and understand
Easier Parent-Teacher communication
Refreshed report cards
Behind the scenes, Alma is designed to save time, give staff instant insights, and reduce busywork
Eventually we will also include:
Standards/Competency Based Grading & Report Cards
In the coming weeks, we will be sending information on how you can access the parent and student portal in Alma. Your portal account will be tied to the email address so make sure we have a current email on file during registration.

On Wednesday, May 22, Warren’s 8th Grade Pre-Engineering students set sail in the first (annual?) Cardboard Regatta at Apple Canyon Lake pool. This was a culmination of a year’s worth of work by the students as they each had a one-quarter long Pre-Engineering “mini” class with Mrs. Robbe.
The 8th Pre-Engineering mini focused on the engineering design process. Throughout the quarter, students used the stages of engineering, as well as mathematics calculations, to design, build, test, and improve water bottle rockets, thermal protection systems, and containers to safety send a chip through the mail.
Their final project was to design, create a scale model, test the scale model, build, and race a cardboard canoe. They used prior knowledge and researched examples of cardboard canoes to assist them in their design as well.
As they built and finalized their canoe, the students were required to calculate surface area and the volume of the canoe. They used this data along with the mass calculations to determine the maximum weight capacity of the craft. The measurement requirements included converting between units of measure. They also had to calculate the total mass and cost of the tape used.
The teams were required to have two people in their boat and were only allowed cardboard and tape. They were also required to have a theme. The students were scored on their calculations and their work as a team.
The final results are in the video below. As you can see, everyone had a blast at the event.
