**Parents--please remember to call the Haines Office at 815-485-2115 if your child will be absent or late for school. These calls should be made by 9:15 AM daily.

Individual Reading Assessment Announcement
During the next few weeks, teachers and reading specialists will be completing aimswebPLUS assessments with students. Your child may complete this testing during regularly scheduled Zoom lessons or the teacher may schedule a time to meet with your child during independent work or student support time. The testing should take approximately 5-20 minutes depending on the grade level.
aimswebPLUS assessments are formative and help our teachers know how to better teach your child. It is more important that your child completes the test to the best of their ability than that they get every answer correct. So that we can get a better understanding of your child’s abilities, please don’t restate directions, provide answers or clues, give indication of a correct or incorrect answer (nod, smile, etc.), or provide feedback to the teacher during the test (since many of the tests are timed). The teacher will provide this feedback to your child as needed and will make sure they feel reassured and successful. We ask that you please not screenshot or copy testing materials as they are copyrighted.
A Special Announcement from Dr. Hall
Do you like to see yourself on video?? Do you want to be seen by 100's of people??
Dr. Hall is looking for students/siblings/families saying the pledge for the morning announcements. Video yourself leading the pledge and you may become Haines FAMOUS! Simply email Dr. Hall at email@example.com if you are interested or feel free to just send her your pledge video right away!
