In an effort to enhance Parent/School Partnerships, you are invited to a meeting to give parents suggestions to successfully manage: Student Stress, Student Anxiety, Student Grief and Loss.
The Illinois State Board of Education requires all Illinois public school students in grades 3-8 to participate in state-administered testing in reading and math. The 2019 Illinois state achievement test is called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) and it replaces PARCC. Lyons School District 103 students will take the assessment during March 11th - April 12th.
At Costello School, fifth and first grade classes partner up and read! Each student is assigned a buddy to work with throughout the year. When time is spent with buddies, students take turn reading to practice their fluency and to share their love of books.
Third Grade has been working very hard on learning their multiplication facts as well as exploring non-fiction texts. Collaboration at Costello allow students to share ideas, learn from peers and bring joy while learning math and reading skills.
