Superintendent's Message


Dear Tiger Parents/Guardians,

Hopefully during this month of March we will be able to put the winter weather behind us. At this time, the only day we have to make up is the day we had to cancel school last fall because of the lack of electricity in our community. An amended calendar for academic year 2019/20 will be posted on our district website in April.

I want to take this opportunity to remind our parents of 3rd through 8th grade students that their child(ren) will be taking the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) during the month of March. Fifth and eighth grade students will also be taking the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) in March. We appreciate your support in making sure your student has the appropriate rest and morning nutrition to be successful on these assessments.

Also, we will honor those students again who achieve “Exceeds” on the IAR English/language arts and/or IAR math assessment with a yard sign. Those students who meet or exceed on either of these assessments will be recognized and honored at a board meeting in the fall at a regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting.

Finally, spring break will begin on March 20th with an early dismissal of 1:30 p.m. Classes will resume at their regular time on March 30th.

Thank you for all your continued support of Elwood School.

 Yours in education,

Cathie Pezanoski
