The PTO has a save the date for their annual trivia night event in this week’s mail!  This event is an incredibly fun one for parents and acts as the largest fundraiser of the year.  We hope to see you there!

Riverside Brookfield High School is changing some of its 8th grade testing from years past.  This year, the Honors Geometry and Spanish 2 test will be administered at the feeder middle school during our academic day.  The Spanish 2 test will be administered on January 15th and the Honors Geometry test will be on the 16th.  The Honors Geometry test is typically taken by those students who are enrolled in an Algebra course at SEG.  Your children’s math teachers have talked with the students about this already.  The Spanish test is open to all students, but is typically administered to those who have taken 7th and 8th grade Spanish at SEG or those who are native speakers, but may not have taken Spanish.  Your child’s Spanish teachers have talked with them about this as well.  If you have further questions please reach out to us for answers.

Please remember that middle school entrance should be complete by 8:05am.  Students arriving after this time will be considered tardy as we have completed our attendance roles in homeroom.  Even though the Lincoln door is open later, after 8:05am that entrance time is for Kindergarten students.  Thank you for your assistance. 

Students return on Monday, January 7th.

From all the staff here at S.E. Gross Middle School, we wish all of you a very happy holiday season filled with family and friends!

Illinois School Report Card

For many years District 95 has stressed the importance of focusing on student growth and working to meet the varied needs of our students to promote their success.  We have developed our curriculum and tailored our instructional practices to make sure that all of our students are learning and growing.  In the new Illinois School Report Card, our commitment to student growth has been recognized. Both S.E. Gross Middle School and Brook Park Elementary were named Exemplary by the State Board of Education.  This status lists us as being in the top 10% of schools in the state.  While excited, we know this report is only one measure.  As always, we will continue to strive to provide the best educational opportunities for the students of Brookfield and LaGrange Park that focuses on student’s continual growth.  Thank you to all who have been fantastic partners in education.

Please think about a spirit wear purchase, which not only shows your school spirit, but also helps support our student council as this is their first activity they are running for the year. 

As the weather begins to turn colder there is an increase of vehicular traffic at drop off/pickup for middle school students.  While we do not have issues during these times yet, please keep in mind that dropping your student off a block away and allowing them to walk towards the school greatly assists in congestion on Lincoln Ave.  Thank you for your assistance thus far! 

Next week you will start to see the steel go up at SEG for the gymnasium.  With the work going on inside; the elevator shaft has been completed, structural reinforcements added and the floors are being leveled so that full scale construction can begin in our renovated portions.
