Sandburg Middle School Social Studies Class Showcases Turn of the Century Museum

Sandburg Middle School’s 8th grade students from Mrs. Padberg’s social studies class have created a TURN of the CENTURY museum.  This exhibit features artifacts, models, slide-shows, movies, and much more! All will be displayed at our “Night at the Museum” on Thursday March 23 in the Sandburg Library and Auditorium from 7-8:00 p.m. Parents, guardians and family members are invited to attend this event, showcasing the research and “curating” skills of Sandburg Middle School students.

The testing window for the spring 2017 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 3 and continue through Friday, April 28. These state-required achievement tests in reading and mathematics are being given to all eligible students in grades 3 – 8. Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students will be tested within this window.

In addition to the PARCC assessment, state and federal regulations require each school to assess achievement in science for students in 5th grade, 8th
grade and high school biology. The Illinois Science Assessment will be administered in each school between Monday, March 13 and Friday, March 24. This assessment is approximately one hour in length and is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards for Science.

We anticipate being able to share score reports in the fall. The complete results of these state tests will be also reported on the Illinois School Report Card in the fall. We will review state tests results, along with other information to help us improve our school program. If you have any questions about the administration of these assessments, please contact your child’s principal.

The York High School Key Club is again sponsoring a “Soles for Kids” shoe drive and is asking for your support and assistance with this endeavor. Through the generosity of District 205 families, they have successfully collected over 8,000 pairs of shoes over the past six years. The drive will begin on Monday, March 6th and conclude on Friday, May 12th. Look for collection bins in our school foyers. Soles for Kids is a charity organization that collects gently used shoes and sends them to needy children and adults in Africa, as well as to Indian Reservations in the United States.
