5 Essentials Time! We need your feedback!
Parents, students and teachers across Illinois will once again have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school as it relates to the important elements of school effectiveness.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by the University of Chicago. All survey responses will be kept confidential. The state will provide survey results for individual schools only if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. If you have children attending more than one school, we ask that you complete the survey for each school.

To take this short survey:

1. Visit 5 Essentials Survey Link

2. Type and select “Dupage” as "County." (The county is the location of the school district's main office.)

3. Type your school's name into the "School" field and select your school.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are ten times more likely to improve student learning. The five indicators that affect school success are effective leaders, collaborative teachers, involved families, supportive environments, and ambitious instruction.

This is our chance to let the State of Illinois hear about our great school community, so please set aside 10-15 mins. to complete the survey for Welch. We are currently at 9% and need 20% or more of our parents to complete the survey! Thank you!

Quarter 2 Report Cards… Grades for 2nd quarter were posted on Home Access on January 11 at 4:00 PM. If you are unsure of your Home Access login information or had difficulty accessing your student’s grades, please contact Welch’s Main Office.

Attendance.... When you student(s) are going to be absent, please notify the Attendance Line at Welch (630.428.7200 x3) and not just the classroom teacher. Thank you!

Change in Dismissal Notification… We certainly understand that things come up and plans sometimes change in regards to a student’s dismissal. If a change in dismissal is necessary, please contact Welch’s Main Office no later than 3:00 PM (630.428.7200) and we will ensure that the message is given to the student. Please do not email or notify the classroom teacher, as they are with students and are not on email frequently throughout the day.
