    Parking Lot Reminders

    Please make sure to follow the guidelines for dropping off students in the morning.  The process is put in place to ensure the safety of our students.

    • In the drop off lane, the right hand side is designated for dropping off students. Vehicles do not have to pull up directly in front of the cross walk lane to drop off students.  Students can exit the cars and walk up to the cross walk lane.  A supervisor will direct students to the appropriate location.  This will speed up the process for vehicles to enter and exit the parking lot.
    • The second lane, closest to Bode Road, is designated to exit the parking lot.  When parents are dropping off their students in this lane, this leads to students crossing in front of cars in the other lane. This is a safety issue for our students.
    • Please refrain from pulling cars into a parking space near Bode Road to drop off students.  Backing up into the ongoing traffic is a safety concern to students and other drivers.  This also causes students to cross in front of other vehicles.

    Thank you for your consistent support to ensure the safety of all students at Keller.

    Math and Literacy Night

    Keller staff has been busy planning for our annual “Math and Literacy Night” on February 22nd.  This is a wonderful opportunity for families to come together to learn how to engage your family in a math and literacy rich world.  Please view the attachment for the more details.  Parents are required to attend with their children.  Please feel free to bring younger siblings as the sessions are geared towards all ages.

    Graduation Gown Fees

    Graduation gown fees are due on Monday, February 6th.

    Thank you for attending . . .

    We would like to thank all of the families who attended student-led conferences last week.  It was a great opportunity for families to check in with their child’s academic progress and for students to share their goals with parents.  As we are approaching the second half of the year, I want to stress the importance for students to complete their homework on time.  Please continue to encourage your child to keep up on their homework on a nightly basis.  Homework completion is a requirement for 8th graders to walk graduation.  It is also a life skill that is essential for future success.

    -Mrs. Wilson

    5Essentials Survey

    5Essentials Survey

    This week our students had the opportunity to take the 5-Essential Survey.  This data is utilized to help us make necessary changes to ensure we are meeting the needs of our students and community.  Please consider taking this assessment. We are always looking for ways to improve our systems and this cannot be done without your input.

    5Essentials Survey – We need your feedback!

    To be able to better serve the needs of our students and community, we need your feedback. In order for us to receive a feedback report, we need at least a twenty-percent response rate.  All teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement. For more information about participation in the Survey within District 54, click the link to the parent survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

    Student Led Conferences

    Parent Teacher Conferences:  January 26 and January 27

    As we are preparing for various events after the holiday break, I’m excited to share that we will be going towards an electronic conference sign-up system.  Letters were mailed home to families who we currently do not have email addresses on file.  If you are having difficulty with the online site, please call our office at 847-357-6500 and we will assist you in reserving a timeslot.  Our hope is that this online system will help you quickly reserve a time that will fit your schedule.

    Directions:

    Step 1 Click the following link Keller Winter Conferences

    Step 2 Click the link for the Inspire teacher that your child sees every Wednesday

    Step 3 Indicate your preference for a conference confirmation

    Step 4 Select your preferred time slot.  Please note that once 4 families have reserved the same time slot, that time slot will not be shown as a preference for other families.

    District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan
