North Grove is proud to present After School Clubs!

    The 2015-2016 school year is off to an excellent start.  The students are in midyear form just a few weeks in.  We have been very impressed with the transition of the students from their summer routines back into their school routines.

    We are preparing for our first round of assessments in September.  Students in kindergarten will take the Illinois Snapshots for Early Literacy.  Students in grades 1-5 will take the MAP assessment.  Students in grades 2-5 will take the AIMSweb reading fluency benchmark. These assessments along with other classroom assessments will provide us with a data set on each student.  Our staff will use this data to establish instructional levels and provide systems of support.  Using this data correctly is a vital part in driving our instruction towards the students’ needs. If you have any questions about these assessments please contact us.

    Our only building fundraiser is about to begin!  Running with the Hawks is a great activity run by the PTO and Mr. Nelson.  The students work as a team to run as many laps as they can during PE class.  Students collect pledge money for each lap that they run.  This has been a very successful fundraiser for us in the past.  We hope you take the time to support this event.  Our PTO will use this money to support the events that take place at North Grove and to fund teacher requests.  Please read the paperwork that was sent home detailing the events of Running with the Hawks.

    Back by popular demand!  Our after school clubs will be coming back to North Grove in just a few short weeks.  Look for more information about our after school clubs in the e-blasts.
