     WELCOME BACK!

    Welcome back to another wonderful school year at Indian Trail Elementary School!

    Our theme this year is:  Dream, Believe, Discover!

    Please stay tuned for more information.

     

    This year we will see a District-wide change to some of our communication systems.    The first is parent-teacher conference scheduling. Information about this new system will be sent this week from Mr James Eichmiller, Director of Innovative Technology and Learning.  Sign-up for conferences will not be available at Curriculum Night next week. (see new information below)

    The second new District initiatve is called SQUIRREL.  Here is the information from Dr Matt Rich, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction.

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    We are very excited to introduce you to our new online learning portal SQUIRREL. SQUIRREL, or Student Quality & Universal Information for Reporting & Recording Education & Learning, was developed here in District 58 to serve as a secure way to provide teachers, students, and parents quick easy access to learning that is occurring in the classroom, organize data into meaningful ways to promote student specific differentiated learning, and provide resources to encourage ongoing academic development. Please feel free to explore SQUIRREL at dg58.info/squirrel using your child’s DG user ID and login password. On the site, you will discover detailed information regarding the specific curriculum objectives and standards your child is learning, up to date (within a week) information regarding your child’s achievement on MAP and AIMSweb assessments, as well as other data as it becomes available.

    As we begin to utilize the SQUIRREL system, we have several parent learning opportunities available. On the front of the SQUIRREL Website there are several parent and student support videos to help learn this new tool. During curriculum night at each building in September, staff members will be available in each building to help parents login and explore SQUIRREL. Finally, we will continue to have throughout the school year our Parent Tech Support /Parent Learning, Assessment, and Reporting meetings. Upcoming sessions hosted at our Longfellow Center (1435 Prairie, Downers Grove, IL, 60515) include:

    August 31, 2015

    Also new this year will be a student-run communication.  We are in the process of designing what this communication might look like!

    Look for an announcement soon.

     

    The staff and I wish everyone a wonderful school year!

     

    Mrs. Bruebach

     

     

     INFORMATION REGARDING ONLINE CONFERENCE SCHEDULING

    Hello Parents and Guardians,

    I hope your children have been enjoying their first few days of school. I am sending this email to inform you of a new method we will be utilizing district wide for the scheduling of parent teacher conferences. This means parents will no longer be scheduling parent teacher conferences on curriculum nights (as some schools have done in the past). We are glad that you will be able to focus on getting to know your child’s teacher and learning about our curriculum and learning program.

        In early October, I will send an informational email to parents explaining the process. The next day, you will receive an email from PowerPTC.net, who is the vendor we are utilizing for this process. For each student, this email will be sent to the primary email account we have on record for each family. You will use this email to setup an account and schedule parent teacher conferences. For any families who are unable to complete this process online, we will have an option available to call and schedule their conferences.

    Thank you for your continued partnership,

    James Eichmiller
    Director of Innovative Technology and Learning
