Parents have an opportunity to provide the Illinois State Board of Education feedback to their child’s school through the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school climate and learning conditions in our schools.
Please click here to complete the survey for each school where you have a student enrolled. The survey is open through January 18, 2019. The information gathered will be used by the schools and the district to help identify areas of strength and areas for improvement. For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or should you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 866.440.1874.
With the support of the PTO, GJHP, and the broader Glencoe community, we are about to reach our goal of 150 packs for children. We are most grateful to all who will contribute. You may return the pack with the information card attached to any of our school entrances. Please return the packs by December 18th so we may ensure they are at Cradles to Crayons in a timely manner.

IL School Report Card Released
In a commitment to new statewide accountability and support, the 2018 Illinois School Report Card has taken on new areas of concentration in the October release. The updated report cards represent the federal requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) authorized in 2015. ESSA offers credence to student growth and graduation rates, accounting for fifty percent of how schools are evaluated, and carrying with it a 15-year implementation timeline. Please click here to learn more and view information on the District 35 School Report Card.
Food For Funds
Food For Funds is a fundraiser in which receipts from Grand Foods can be turned in for 3% back which will then be donated to charity. The 8th Grade Executive Cabinet will be collecting receipts in order to raise funds. Therefore, we are asking parents and guardians for help to achieve our goal. Any Grand Foods receipts from 2018 can be turned in to any District 35 school before December 18th. All 2019 receipts can be handed in by June 1, 2019. Any value would be appreciated and we thank you for your support.
The 8th Grade Executive Cabinet is also collecting box-tops and pop-tabs. These can also be turned in to any District 35 school at anytime throughout the year.
Thanks again for your support,
8th Grade Executive Cabinet
