    Dear Fairview Families, Thank you to all families and staff who came out to Prospect High School on Sunday afternoon to cheer on our Fairview Special Olympi- ans. Four Fairview students along with several Lincoln students repre- sented District 57 well in how hard they worked and practiced leading up to Sunday, and their outstanding performance showed that their hard work paid off. Special thanks to Lisa Johnson, instructional assis- tant at Fairview, for taking the lead in organizing all of the paperwork and planning for Special Olympics on behalf of District 57! Over the past two weeks, students in grades 3-5 have been participat- ing in the PARCC assessments. Our third graders have one more math test on Monday, and the rest of next week will be used for make- up testing for anyone who missed any portion of the test due to ab- sence. Our Spring MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing schedule will take place in just over one week between 5/2 and 5/13. During this two-week window, students will be assessed in both read- ing and math (1 test in each subject). As a staff, we will look closely at this data to measure how much our students have grown from early September to early May. When we analyze MAP data, we also look for overall trends over the several years that students have taken these assessments. Globally, we utilize this data to measure our pro- gress toward school wide goals related to our school improvement plan. Of course, we utilize a variety of other measures to analyze growth over the course of a school year including reading and math fluency data, reading comprehension assessment data, math concepts and applications data, and various other classroom assessments. When you receive MAP reports at the end of the year, feel free to con- tact your child’s teacher if you have further questions about his or her comprehensive progress over the school year. Similar to the PARCC test, please encourage your children to give this assessment their best effort in order to show us how much they’ve grown this school year. As mentioned back in March, our state mandated Erin’s Law presenta- tions had to be rescheduled due to conflicts with our presenter from the Northwest Center Against Sexual Assault. These presentations have been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 27

    th and will be given by

    our social worker, Jamie OBrill and Westbrook social worker, Lisa Ryno. They will utilize the same curriculum that NW CASA was plan- ning to use and will teach students about personal safety, safe vs. un- safe touches, safety steps to follow if someone breaks the touching rule, and good secrets vs. bad secrets. All students will be included in the sexual abuse prevention programs unless a parent or guardian contacts me via phone or email to request that their child not partici- pate (dophus@d57.org, 847-394-7320 x4012). Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any follow up questions or concerns. Enjoy the continued spring weather this weekend, and we look forward to seeing our students again on Monday morning! Sincerely, Dan Ophus Fairview Principal

    BICYCLE SAFETY

    If students ride their bicycles to school, they need to observe bicycle safety. All students are allowed to ride bicycles to school. They should always observe safe bicycling rules and walk their bicycles when on school grounds. Bicycles should always be locked up at our bicycle racks in the bus turna- round. Skateboards, scooters, and roller blades are not allowed on school grounds at any time.
