ILMEA All-State Music Convention

On Saturday, January 31st, our chorus students will be performing at the ILMEA All-State Music Convention in Peoria. The address for the concert is Riverside Community Church, 207 Northeast Monroe Street, in Peoria. The bus will depart from Washington School at 7 a.m. At 8:30, the students will warm-up and the performance is at 9:45. The students will need to wear any combination of blank, white and grey dress clothes. Tennis shoes are not acceptable footwear.

5 Essentials Survey

A student survey will be administered at Washington School called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This is the third year the Illinois State Board of Education will implement this survey across the state. This survey is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. It asks students in grades 6 -12 about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

This year, student participants will be required to log-in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.

Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials website (https://Illinois.5-essentials.org).

If you do not want your son or daughter, in grades 6-8 to participate, please fill out the information on the attached form and return it to his or her teacher. Please return by January 30th if you do not want your child to participate. Again, this is only for students in grades 6-8 at Washington School.
