Beginning January 24, students and teachers across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the eleventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. What’s in it for you? • Upon verification of completion your child will be given a Uniform Free Pass. Each child in the family will earn the pass! • The top two classes with the most participation will earn a PIZZA PARTY. • A better school community that is striving to MEET your wants and needs to best support and educate our kids! There are two ways to verify your completion of the survey: 1) Screenshot your screen and send to your classroom teacher 2) Complete the slip at the bottom of the form that will be sent home next week and return to your classroom teacher. To take the survey, please scan the QR Code or go to https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/
