In honor of our community Veteran's we would like to have a big assembly to show the students what Veteran's day is all about!
We are asking students to bring in photos of a veteran they are connected to. It could be an active duty member or someone with honorable prior service. It should be a family member such as a father, mother, grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunt, cousin, brother, or sister.
Original pictures will be scanned-in and sent home immediately. From the scanned file, we would print (8x10) pictures to display during our assembly. For each picture, we would need to know:
-Student who brought in the picture
-Relationship to the pictured veteran
-Branch of service in which the veteran served
If possible we would love to have your student participate. Please email pictures to Sra. Cade at PATRICIA.CADE@d11.org or bring them to the front office.
Keep your eyes open for a new School District 11 monthly e-newsletter that will be delivered right to your inbox! The new e-newsletter will feature regular updates on the 2017 mill levy override implementation, what is top of mind for district leadership, a student and/or staff spotlight story and videos of our new Superintendent, Mr. Michael Thomas as he visits schools and works with students and staff.
The Y will be offering both morning and afternoon care at Midland when classes resume in August. I know this will be of great benefit to many of the new and returning students.
Did you know District 11 schools work hard to build strong relationships between home and school? Most all D11 schools have a Family Involvement Toolkit Coach, or F.I.T. Coach who designs plans throughout the school year to increase family involvement. Be part of your school’s community to increase family involvement by joining the PTA, PTO, F.I.T. planning, or a variety of other opportunities. Together we all help our students succeed! For more information on the Family Involvement Toolkit, please visit d11.org/communications and click on the family involvement links, or call the main office to get involved.
In order to reflect the ideas and interests of the communities we service, the development of the strategic plan requires the involvement of community members, parents, staff, students, and district leaders. Visit this link for updates on the development of the new plan.
