July 23, 2012
Dear Students and Parents, Welcome to another exciting school year. I hope that you have had a relaxing summer and are ready for school. I am happy to begin my third year as the principal of Lincoln Middle School and to have Mrs. Julie Gilles as my assistant principal, as well as introduce Ms. Cenithia Tice as my second assistant principal. All three of us are committed to serving you. There have been a lot of changes due to construction. As a result, the entire office area has been redesigned and parking lots and bus circles are newly designed. Irving Primary will close in December and those students and staff will begin the second semester at Lincoln in the new wing. The staff remains committed to ensuring that the time students spend in the classroom is meaningful and full of many interesting activities that challenge the minds of all students. P.B.I.S and A.V.I.D are programs that will continue and all students will have access to various types of technology such as Nooks (digital books) and iPads during the school year. Open House is on August 17th from 4pm to 6pm. Come out and meet teachers and staff, and get classroom supply lists, copies of dress codes and schedules. Enjoy the remainder of your summer and we will see you August 20, 2012. Sincerely,
309 672 6542 phone • 309 676 6615 fax • 700 Mary Street • Peoria, IL 61603
Monday, July 23, 2012 Dear Valued Parent/Guardian and Student: I am very excited to begin a new school year at Peoria Public Schools. I hope you join in the excitement of a fresh start, new opportunities and additional resources to help your child succeed throughout his or her academic years and the rest of his or her life. I want to make sure you have the information you need to help your child be ready and prepared for the first day of school on Monday, August 20th, which is a FULL DAY of school. Please read through the information included in this packet and take note of the following announcements and initiatives that will impact our students for the upcoming school year: 1. Backpack Peoria and Parent University Kick-Off We have been busy promoting and hope you have already heard about this exciting event. If not, Peoria Public Schools is teaming up with Dream Center Peoria for Backpack Peoria. Families are encouraged to visit the Dream Center Peoria on Saturday, July 28, 2012 (714 Hamilton Blvd # 200) between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Families will have access to community resources, students will receive backpacks filled with school supplies, medical providers will be available for medical and dental screenings, school and District staff will be on hand to answer registration or other questions. We will also kick-off Parent University just prior to the school year starting. Parent University is a resource for parents and guardians that will provide trainings and information throughout the school year on topics not only associated with education, but also community resources. This year, we are excited to welcome Dr. Steve Perry as our guest speaker for this special event. Please see the flyer included in this packet to learn more about this event and Dr. Perry. We hope to see you on August 16th at Woodruff Career and Technical Center! Registration Only new students and incoming freshmen need to pre-register for the 2012-2013 school year. Registration dates for these students will be August 13th from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and August 14th from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the student's new school. Families of sixth grade students may also turn in physical exam paperwork during this time. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to have medical requirements documented at the school on the first day of classes. On August 20th, 2012 (the first day of school full day for all students), each child will be sent home with a registration packet that will include an emergency contact form, photo release form, internet usage form, District calendar/handbook and information from the student's teacher and school. Families are asked to read through, fill out and sign the forms in this packet and return them to the student's school by August 24th. 3. Pay School Fees Online Skyward Family Access allows families to pay school fees online. This year, Family Access will be the only option to make online payments. If your family has not signed up for Family Access, call our Accountability and Research Department at 672-6761 to sign up today! Once your family has a username and password, you can login to Family Access by visiting www.psd150.org and clicking on the Family Access icon in the top right corner. Once logged in, families can make payments, check grades, update contact information and more. You can learn more about making payments by reading the information included in this back to school packet. One change to look forward to, is that you will soon be able to pay for multiple students in one transaction! Compass Learning Many families have used Compass Learning, an online resource for students to work on skills that have been identified as needing improvement and/or accelerating in order to keep the learning process going, even when the student is not at school. School computer labs were open this summer and many students participated in Compass Learning activities. This program is also used in our classrooms throughout the school year. It is a fun, interactive tool to help your child improve or advance in different content areas. Compass Learning links to each of our students testing scores (NWEA) to challenge them in the most appropriate areas. All students and parents should have separate logins. You can learn more about Compass Learning on a separate information sheet included in this packet. (Continued on back)

Internet Essentials – We know that many students and their families would like to have Internet service at home so they can do homework, access Compass Learning, and maybe even look for a job or research a hobby. We believe the Internet can be an important part of your child’s education. That’s why we want to make sure you know about a new program provided by Comcast called Internet Essentials. SM If you have at least one child receiving free or reduced price school lunches, your family may qualify for this fast, affordable home Internet service for the new school year. Internet Essentials costs just $9.95 per month (plus tax). For participating families, there are no price increases, no activation fees or equipment rental fees. In addition, you can buy a low-cost computer for just $149.99 (plus tax) and receive free Internet training — online, in print and in person. You can learn more on the Comcast IE flyer in this packet.
Career & Technical, International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP) and AVID Classes Peoria Public Schools is excited to once again offer a career and technical education program for high school students and a Growing Up Ready component at all middle schools (allowing students to increase their awareness of different career areas for them to consider). High school students participating in the career and technical program will have a choice of construction trades, engineering, electrical, health sciences or manufacturing. This year, students from all high schools have access to these programs! Charter Oak Primary, Mark Bills Middle, Sterling Middle and Trewyn K-8 continue their pursuit to be recognized IB schools. Each enters its second year of a four year process in the pre-authorization phase. Previously, IB was only offered at the high school level. All high schools will again offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Additional staff members were trained over the summer to teach these courses that can challenge and give students an edge as they look to enroll in college. Finally, Manual Academy, Peoria High School, Richwoods High School and Lincoln Middle School will offer AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) classes to a select group of students. AVID allows students and parents to commit to the challenge of a rigorous curriculum, offer them the tools they need to travel the college preparatory pathway, and become more involved in school activities. Approximately 200 students have committed to participate in the program this school year.
There are many other changes I am excited about in our District for the upcoming year, but unfortunately, there is not enough space to list those in detail. So briefly, here are some additional opportunities that we are offering: 1) continued expansion of social emotional supports, such counselors, psychologists and social workers, for students District-wide. 2) continued expansion/implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) in every school. 3) a Freshmen Orientation for all incoming freshmen prior to the first day of school (call your home high school if your family has not already received information). 4) a Reading Buddies Program that is seeking volunteers from throughout the community to work with third grade students throughout the District that are not on grade level in reading (more information is available at www.psd150.org under the A Classroom is Calling link). Last year, nearly 450 Reading Buddy volunteers helped approximately 250 3rd grade students become better readers. Please consider volunteering and help us expand this program. Ways to stay informed: • I encourage you to visit our website frequently for updates throughout the District. • We will also continue Remarkable Times, a weekly email newsletter to send out to all families registered with an email on Family Access. A form will be provided in the First Day Registration Packet for your family to sign up, if you are not already registered for Family Access. • Each school, as well as the District, frequently sends out Skylert phone messages with updates for parents and families, using the phone number listed on Family Access. • Please do not hesitate to call the student's school to ask questions or seek information. • I will continue to meet with parents at monthly Parent Forums held throughout the District. I wish you and your family a great upcoming school year! Yours for a better school district,
Dr. Grenita Lathan Superintendent

*** Thursday, August 16, 2012 (5pm – 8pm) *** Woodruff Career and Technical Center Keynote speaker: Dr. Steve Perry
Dr. Perry is in a hurry to transform the educational experience for all children. Born into poverty, he believes that success in life is determined by where you end, not where you start. It’s this philosophy that inspired him, early on, to transform the lives of poor and minority children by providing them with access to a college education, and more recently, has inspired him to bring his ideas and passion to children everywhere, no matter what their socioeconomic or academic background. In 1998 Dr. Perry founded ConnCAP, the Connecticut Collegiate Awareness Program, at Capital Community College. For a period of six years, the program sent 100% of its low-income first-generation graduates to four-year colleges. Then in 2004 Capital Preparatory Magnet School was established in Hartford, Connecticut’s lowest performing district, and since its inception that school, too, has sent 100% of its graduates to four-year colleges! Capital Prep has been recognized by US News & World Report as one of America’s Best High Schools. Dr. Perry’s uncompromising, no-excuses approach to designing the ideal educational experience for children led to his being featured on CNN’s documentary “Black in America” and from there to an official role as a weekly education contributor to the network. His “Perry’s Principles” and other reportage, regularly seen on both Anderson Cooper 360 and American Morning, tackles the most contentious issues being debated in American education. Dr. Perry is a columnist for Essence magazine, and the author of the bestselling self-published book Man Up! He is also a nationally sought after speaker who has appeared on hundreds of radio and television broadcasts and at education and cultural forums around the country. In his forthcoming Push Has Come to Shove, Perry will spare no sacred cows in describing what steps need to be taken to ensure that all American schools, whether urban or suburban, deliver a first-rate education to our kids – the kind of schooling that will return the United States to the top of the global education rankings.
Opening Session & Exhibits: 5:00pm Workshop Sessions: 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm Closing raffle drawing for prizes: 8:00 pm
Hors d’voeures will be served throughout the event.

Dear Parent/Guardian, Peoria Public Schools has partnered with Compass Learning – Odyssey to provide students with access to a powerful online tool that provides academic resources for students. This summer, we opened computer labs at schools throughout the District to allow students to take part in this exciting resource. If you do not know about this program or have not logged in with your student, students and parents can access Compass Learning using any computer with high-speed internet access. If you do not have high-speed internet access at home, we encourage you to take advantage of computer access available through the Peoria Public Library or other locations, or look into Comcast’s Internet Essentials program. Every student has a username and password for Compass Learning/Odyssey. Once students log in to the system, there will be activities available to the student based on his/her grade level. Students in grades 2-8 will also have a “learning path” identified through Spring 2012 NWEA scores, which will be updated with each administration of NWEA (three times per year). Activities should be completed in the order listed and students should strive to attain 80% correct on each assignment. For assignments with a score of less than 80%, a code will be provided. Students can restart these assignments by typing in the code in the “Activity Finder” box. By participating in Compass Learning, your student will continue his/her learning over the summer and when school is not in session. Compass Learning is also used in our classrooms throughout the year. In addition to student access, login and password information for parents is also available. Parents can use their login to track student performance. Please encourage your student to take advantage of this exciting opportunity. If you need assistance with login and password questions, please call the Accountability and Research Office at 309-672-6761.
