Information Day- Thursday, August 14th

Posted August 13th, 2014 by Miss Cochrane

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Mead staff, I want to thank the Mead community for their warm hospitality as we walked through the neighborhoods to welcome our students back.  The staff, Mrs. Smith and I truly enjoyed our time yesterday and are excited for the school year to start!

There is always a lot of information to share at this time of the school year.  We will be handing out your student’s class schedule this year on August 14, Information Day.  During the past several months the Mead staff and I have been working through the scheduling process for all of our 620 Mead Mustangs.  This was a time-consuming, complex process that involved content specialists, encore teachers, the psychologist, social workers, and ELL teachers.  We truly appreciate the trust you have given us in using our best professional judgment in placing students.  Our scheduling process is a team effort that is very complex and completed with great care.  When picking up your child’s schedule on Information Day, you will notice there are no longer grade level teams specified.  After much consideration, we have decided to group our student by grade level only.  In recent years, we have moved away from students eating by team, scheduling students by teacher teams and being sorted for whole school events by teams.  Because our building no longer utilizes the teams for organizational and scheduling purposes, we will no longer be dividing students into teams.

We consider many factors and work to place each student in the best schedule possible. During the sectioning process we do use teacher input, but again, remember many staff members and many factors determine the final decision.  As we work through the scheduling process, we consider the following factors:

  • Math placements
  • Language Arts placements
  • Elective preferences (please remember we can only guarantee one of the electives selected on the selection sheet)
  • Acceleration placements
  • Distribution of students with special needs or considerations such as Special Education, Bilingual, Magnet, and Discovery
  • Separation or placement of children into the most appropriate social groups
  • Proportionate distribution of boys and girls
  • Balance of students’ achievement levels

We do not take into consideration student friendships and/or feeder school cohorts when making scheduling decisions.  Instead, every consideration is made to best accommodate each student’s needs.  With over 620 students in our school, the task of dividing students into balanced groups is challenging.

I understand that your student’s schedule is very important to you and your student.  It would be wonderful if every student and parent were able to request/determine their class schedule for the upcoming academic year.  Unfortunately, it is impossible to honor over 620 requests.  Once you receive your student’s schedule on August 14, if you would like to discuss an appropriate schedule change, please do not hesitate to call or email Mrs. Smith (lilysmith@sd54.org ), our assistant principal, or me.  Thank you in advance for your support as we strive to create a positive learning environment for all of our students.   Again, we thank you for relying on and trusting our professional judgments on this important issue.

I hope to see everyone tomorrow.

Dear Mead Families,

We hope everyone has had a wonderful and relaxing summer break! Now, summer is almost over and we are getting ready for our back to school events. Please read all the information below carefully because there have been some changes made for the upcoming school year. Our Mead office will open on Monday, August 5, from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. Included in this letter is information that will be helpful to you and your child in preparing for the first day of school.  We look forward to seeing all our families on August 14 at Information Day!

SCHOOL INFORMATION DAY

School Information Day will be Thursday, August 14, 2014, from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Mead Junior High School. Class schedules will be distributed, supply lists will be available, and maps will be provided so students and parents will have the opportunity to tour the building.  You may pre-order the 2014-2015 yearbook and purchase gym uniforms, also.  Parents must accompany their student to Information Day.

REGISTRATION

If you moved or your lease has expired, please bring the proper documentation to serve as proof of residence to Collins School, 407 South Summit, in Schaumburg.  Your closing documents or new lease will be needed to register. Collins School is available July 8 until August 7, from 10 AM – 7 PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On Thursdays, they are available from 10 AM – 2 PM. Please call 847-357-5103 if you have further questions.
It is important all students register so they will have a smooth start to the school year. If you plan to be out of town on August 14, you may register at Collins or register upon your return to Mead. Unfortunately, Mead will not be able to register students prior to August 14.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

The first full day of school on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, is for seventh grade students ONLY.  This day is designated for seventh grade students to help them get acclimated and comfortable with Mead Junior High.  Please note that 7th grade students should not bring school supplies to school on August 26.  The first day of school for both seventh and eighth grade students will be Wednesday, August 27.  On August 27, we will host our annual “Camp Mead” where students will travel through the key areas of the school to review the behavior expectations and be explicitly taught what it means to be a respectful, responsible, and safe Mead Mustang. School supplies may be brought to school on that day.

SCHOOL HOURS

School hours are 7:38 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. with the first bell ringing at 7:30.  Please note: beginning Wednesday, August 27, every Wednesday is designated for staff development.  Students are dismissed 30 minutes early at 1:45p.m.

OFFICE HOURS

School office hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Remember that our student absence line (357-6002) is available 24 hours a day. Please call by 7:00 a.m. if your child will be absent from school.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS

If your child plans to try out for one of our athletic teams or after school physical activities, per School Board Policy, a current physical is required to be on file prior to try-outs and/or participation in any inter-scholastic sport or intramural. This is a change from previous years so any student participating in an event that requires physical activity (i.e. poms, soccer club, any intramural) must have a current physical on file.  All new students entering our district must present a health examination and proof of immunizations prior to the first day of attendance. Please note that physical examinations are good for one year from the date of the exam

On Information Day, Northwest Community Healthcare will be providing Sports Physical Exams at Mead for students in the Free/Reduced Lunch Program at a discounted price of $5. Please call 1-847-618-5439 to set up an appointment – space is limited. If you have any questions about your child’s physical, contact our school nurse at 847-357-6016.

SUPPLY LISTS

Teachers would like your student to bring all supplies on August 27.  (7th grade students should not bring school supplies on August 26, which is 7th Grade Training Day).  Remember to mark your student’s personal items with his/her name to avoid confusion if an item is misplaced.

PTA

Please be sure to stop by the PTA Information Table on Thursday, August 14, during Information Day.  PTA board members will be available to answer questions related to volunteering and joining the Mead PTA. Our first PTA meeting will be held on September 10, before Curriculum Night in the gymnasium (Mustang Arena).  The PTA is a vital arm of our school and we urge you to take an active role!

MEAD STAFF

There have been a number of staff changes that should be noted. Ms. Colleen Leahy will be joining our math department and Ms. Rebecca Studney and Mr. Garrett Olsen will be joining our language arts department.

Ms. Cindy Churchill will join the Guidance Department as our psychologist.  Carla Kelly and Liz Umlauf will be joining our special services department and Karen Marlega will be joining our main office.  We hope you will join us in welcoming all of our new staff members to Mead.

RUN TO READ

As you may know, Everett Dirksen School in Schaumburg will be hosting the annual School District 54 Run to Read on Sunday, September 28.  All profits from this event will be used to purchase books for classroom libraries in District 54.  It would be great to see the Margaret Mead Junior High community well represented at this event!  Feel free to encourage friends and family to join in the fun. If you would like additional information regarding the race, please go to the district web site.

Again, this year promises to be a great one!  Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer and prepare yourself for what is sure to be an exciting and academically-challenging school year.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the coming school year, please feel free to contact me at any time.  I look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely,

Jillian Sagan and Lily Smith

Mead Update – Last day of School!

Posted June 5th, 2014 by Miss Cochrane

Dear Mead Community,
As I look back at the year, I am amazed at what we have accomplished.  The students at Mead have made tremendous gains in and out of the classroom.  Many of these gains can be seen in our students’ MAP results and ISAT performances.  It can also be seen in the participation of the students in the many extracurricular activities we offer at Mead.

Some important dates to remember for the 2014-2015 school year are:

August 14        (9:00-12:00pm and 6:00-8:00 pm) Information Day

August 26        First Day of School 7th grade ONLY “Camp Mead”

August 27        1st Day of School for 7th and 8th grade “Training Camp”

September 10   Curriculum Night

More specific information regarding these events will go home in early August.

I would like to thank the entire community for supporting our staff and students throughout the year.  Our success is a direct result of your hard work and dedication as a parent, ensuring your child has a positive school experience.

Thank you for a great year and have an enjoyable summer.

Graduation Reminders

Posted June 4th, 2014 by Miss Cochrane

Dear Eighth Grade Mead Community,

As a reminder, the 8th Grade Graduation Ceremony will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. at Conant High School, 700 E. Cougar Trail in Hoffman Estates on Wednesday, June 4th.  Graduates should arrive no earlier than 5:30 p.m. and report to the cafeteria.  Students must enter through Door 1.  Graduates with last names A-K will be seated on the east side of the gym, while L-Z will be on the west side.  Use these guidelines when selecting your seat.  At the conclusion of the ceremony, parents and family will not be allowed in the cafeteria, so please meet your graduate outside Door 1.  The graduation ceremony should be a meaningful, pleasant experience for you as well as your graduate.  For that to happen, we need your cooperation.  When taking pictures, please do not stand in an area that will interfere with the students entering and leaving the ceremony.  Flowers or other gifts should be given to students after the ceremony.  Balloons should not be brought into the building.

Please remember that applause is the appropriate response at graduation, and it should occur at the conclusion of the ceremony to allow for every family to hear the name of their child being read and their academic achievements.  If you choose to hoot and holler for your child, our action will be to not give your child his/her diploma tonight.  If your child’s diploma is taken, you will be able to pick it up from me during school hours next week.  I will ask that you call in advance and make an appointment with me.

Finally, during our graduation practice tomorrow, we did pass out our academic achievement certificates to students.  When students’ names are called to receive their diploma, we will announce any and all academic recognitions.  The academic recognitions are as follows:

  • President’s Education Award – Gold:  Student maintains a 4.0 grade point average over the 2 years at Mead plus achieves high MAP scores
  • President’s Education Award – Silver:  Student maintains a 3.5 – 3.99 grade point average over the 2 years at Mead plus achieves high MAP scores
  • Scholastic Achievement Award:  Student maintains a 3.0 or better grade point average over the 2 years at Mead

We are looking forward to a special ceremony tomorrow night.

Mead Update 5-23-14

Posted May 23rd, 2014 by Miss Cochrane

Dear Mead Community,

This past April, our students completed the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment in the areas of reading and mathematics. This assessment measures student growth over the course of the school year and is used by the school to inform our instruction. Students are assessed three times during the year with growth goals established upon completion of the fall assessment. Now that the spring administration of this assessment is complete it can be seen that truly great things are happening in your child’s classes.

Students at Mead Junior High truly excelled. Eight-three percent of all students reached or exceeded their identified growth target in the area of math, while seventy-four percent of students achieved or surpassed their reading goals.  What this means is that Mead is in the top five percent of schools nationally, making us a ‘95/95’ school.  Truly amazing!

We understand that this assessment is but one data point we use to assess the progress of our students and the success of our school. However, we can say we are truly proud of our students and recognize all of their teachers’ efforts in preparing our students for success.

PTA:

Huge thank you to all the PTA parents who were on the 8th grade dance committee and volunteered their time last night at our dance.  It was a huge success and the kids truly enjoyed themselves.

Special thank you to Riccardo’s and a parent for donating some of the food and the candy for our students.

PBIS:

  • The PBIS Focus Expectation is for students to be respectful and on-task.  Mead will promote on-task, respectful, and compliant behaviors by rewarding students who exhibit these behaviors with tickets.
  • We are looking for a parent volunteer for our Universal and Tier II meetings.  It would be one meeting a month from 3:15-4:15.  Please email me if you are interested.
