News You Can Use 11.8.2019


Parents, if you have not already done so, please sign up for a conference time with your child’s classroom teacher during conferences on November 25 and 26 from 12-8. Please be prompt for your conference in order to make the meeting as productive as possible. We believe that communication between the school and home is an invaluable tool in a child’s education and extremely important in facilitating a successful outcome. In order to help facilitate your conference consider sending questions in advance to your teacher so that they can properly prepare.


Please note that District 112 has provided staff with this contractual time to meet with parents to review student progress, answer questions, and set goals for the next grading period. During this time, arrangements are made for many specialists and resource teachers to be available as well. If you are unable to attend your scheduled conference due to other family commitments, you will have an opportunity to contact the classroom teacher for a phone conference on those days. When multiple families request special appointments outside of the scheduled conference dates, planning for daily instruction is compromised, which affects the entire classroom. The Braeside staff works diligently to prepare for conferences. We look forward to spending this focused time with our families!

North Shore School District 112 is working in partnership with families to encourage regular attendance in school. Unfortunately, poor attendance, regardless of the reason, can negatively affect students' grades and social emotional development. Students must be present in order to successfully learn skills, take tests, and keep up with the required class work.  


If you are having difficulty getting your child to attend school regularly, or if family problems are affecting your child's attendance, please contact your child’s teacher, school social worker, school psychologist, or building administrator for help. We are committed to working with you to increase attendance and ensure that your child benefits from his or her education. 


In an effort to bring awareness to attendance, we will be sending letters home regularly for students who miss greater than 10% of the preceding days of attendance. We understand that every situation is unique, and we want all parents to be aware of their child’s absences. 



Attention parents! There are grade level sings throughout the year and the dates are noted below. This year we will be offering all students at school a showtime at 2:00 p.m. on the day of the performance. This daytime performance will still be open for those that wish to join us, but please understand that this is intended to serve primarily as a final rehearsal and student showcase. We may not have seating for everyone on these daytime shows. Then we will offer a 6:30 p.m. sing for parents and families.
