A Message from the Principal- 12/10/18

At Frost, our simple and focused mission goals have always been High Achievement and Positive Culture.  Over the past two weeks, our focus on ensuring High Achievement for our students and creating a Positive Culture at Frost were on full display.  This past week, our students completed their winter MAP tests in reading and mathematics allowing the teachers and your child see the progress they have made this school year.  We will use each student’s results to plan for specific and individualized instruction for your child the latter half of the school year.  During our Advocacy lessons, our students and staff continue to take valuable time away from typical daily instruction to learn about being Frost Strong.  Every Wednesday, our students connect with engaging social-emotional learning lessons/experiences around fairness and honesty, goal-setting, building relationships, personal emotions, culture and perspectives, empathy and bullying, and personal responsibility.  We encourage you to discuss with your child their take-aways from what they learn during Advocacy.  This month, our students are focusing on the importance of kindness by quantifying the number of “mini-miracles” our students and staff can give.  A “mini-miracle” is any conscious act of kindness—our hope to is to spread the positivity that comes from helping others.  Finally, our Interact Club has completed our annual Adopt-a-Family fundraiser to benefit Frost families-in-need this holiday season.  Our Adopt-a-Family is the ultimate project of kindness!  These events are powerful reminders to all of us what it means to be “Frost Strong”.

A Message from the Principal- 11/12/18

At Frost, we talk a lot about being “Frost Strong”.  “Frost Strong” simply means being your best self in everything that you do.  This past week, being “Frost Strong” was on full display at Robert Frost Junior High School.

On Thursday, we held our annual “Thank a Veteran” night.  During the “Thank a Veteran” night, our students interacted with true American heroes who embody what it means when we say, “Frost Strong”.  To honor their strength, the Veterans were recognized between the boys basketball games.  After their name was announced, they were presented with a certificate, pin, U.S. Flag, gift bag, Frost Veteran’s Day t-shirt, and patriotic flowers and then were escorted to the cafeteria by one of our boys basketball players.  During their walk to the gym, the Veterans were further honored as they walked past displayed notes written by our students that were hung in our main hallway thanking them for their service.  While in the cafeteria, the Veterans enjoyed a complimentary dinner with musical accompaniment.  The event was powerful and reminded all of us what it means to be “Frost Strong”.

On Friday, our students and staff ended a highly successful first trimester.  Back in August, we asked our Spartans to display their “best self” in three critical areas this school year: academics, character, and behavior.  As a staff, we are proud of how your children have answered the call and have exceeded expectations in these areas.  We have a fantastic group of students this school year who make it an absolute joy to educate on a daily basis. Thank you to our parents for working as partners with us to ensure your child’s success at Frost.  Together as students, staff, and parents, we can continue this “Frost Strong” momentum moving forward for the rest of the year!

Please read below for more information about our goals to raise student achievement and create a positive culture at Frost.

High Achievement

Report cards:  Our first trimester ended on Friday, November 9.  District 54 launched an online report card last school year.  Everyone who has a parent portal account will be able to see their children’s report cards online.  All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account, then please contact our front office who can assist you with sign up. If you are unable to access the parent portal and require a paper copy of your student’s report card, please contact our office.

Winter MAP test begins on November 26, 2018.  The students will be taking their tests in their mathematics and language arts classrooms.  Please see the testing schedule below.  We are excited to monitor the progress of the goals our students set for themselves at the beginning of the school year.  During our February student goal-setting conferences, we will share the results with you.

  • Reading: All students will test in their language arts class Monday, 11/26 and Tuesday, 11/27.
  • Mathematics: All students will test in their mathematics class Monday, 12/3 through Wednesday, 12/5.
  • All students in instructional classes will take their reading and mathematics tests Thursday, 11/29 and Friday, 12/7.

5Essentials Survey:  once again, we are reaching out to our families and asking you to participate in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey to provide us with your perspective and help guide our school improvement efforts. The parent survey will be available online through Jan. 18, 2019, at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois.  The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and is available in English and Spanish. Note: the survey will time out and you will need to start over if you do not finish in one sitting.  If you have more than one child, you may complete the survey for each child. You will be asked to select your county and then your child’s school. Be aware that there are often schools with the same or similar names in the state of Illinois.  The state is not providing hard copies of this survey. If you do not have access to a computer, you can visit the Schaumburg Township District Library or call your child’s school and we will let you use a computer at the school to take the survey.  The survey is administered by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. If at least 20 percent of parents at a school complete the survey, a supplemental parent report will be generated and shared with schools. We are hoping to meet the target this year in our schools.  A similar survey will also be administered to our teachers and students.  District 54 students will take the survey at school during the week of Nov. 27. You can review the questions asked of students by visiting http://Illinois.5-essentials.org. If you do not want your child to participate, please contact me by Nov. 19. If you have children at more than one school, you must contact the principal at each school.  Students will log in to the survey with their student ID and birth date. Student identities will be confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.  If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at (866) 440-1874 or 5essentials@nulluchicago.edu.

Social Emotional Learning:  At school, we have been talking about Culture and Perspectives and would like to share ways you can continue the learning at home.  The following questions/scenarios can be completed any time.  Talking with your children will reinforce the social emotional life skills needed. We hope you enjoy the valuable discussions with your children!

  • Have a family discussion: What if everyone in the world looked the same and shared the same beliefs? Would you want to live in this world? Why or why not?
  • Discuss stereotyping and its negative effects for both the victim and perpetrator. How can you overcome your bias?
  • Think of a time that someone upset you (hurt your feelings, made you angry, or disappointed you). How can viewing the same situation from a different perspective help?
  • Tim Burton said, “One person’s craziness is another person’s reality.”  How does this quote support understanding perspective?

On November 8, Frost Junior High will be hosting our Fourth Annual Invite a Veteran to Dinner event.

We ask our students to talk and ask questions about the veteran’s service including memories from their time in service.  A highlight is the “Hero Wall” our Frost students create to display the veterans pictures with decorated thank you notes.  In addition, the café is decorated in red, white, and blue with a very large thank you banner signed by all of our Frost students accompanied by a photo slide show during dinner.  If you would like to recognize a special veteran, please email Joan Czarnecki at joanczarnecki@nullsd54.org or Rob Ferguson at robertferguson@nullsd54.org .

A Message from the Principal 10-29-18

The past two weeks, we were proudly able to show our “Frost Strong” commitment to High Achievement and Positive Culture!  Our cross country and girls basketball teams capped off successful seasons with individual conference medalist in cross country and a co-championship for our eighth grade girls basketball team—their second conference championship in as many years!  Two weeks ago, the Frost PTA was recognized with an honor award for donating money to our LRC for the purchase of books.  I had the privilege last week to present the 2018-19 Frost School Improvement Plan (SIP) to Superintendent DuRoss, Associate Superintendent Dr. Myers, and the Cabinet.  Our SIP is written in the areas of reading/mathematics, whole child success, and culture and is the driving plan for our instruction, assessment, intervention, and enrichment at Frost this school year.  In eighth grade science, Ms. Nash took home the coveted “egg drop trophy” with her classes coming out victorious!  On Friday, we held our first Pep Rally of the school year where we awarded several students with a Key of Excellence award!  To top off a wonderful two weeks, our school-wide “Lip Dub” was finally released on our Frost Spartans  YouTube Channel.  The Frost Lip Dub was a great way to spread happiness and create a “peak moment” for the entire school—you can view it by clicking on this link: Frost Lip Dub 2018.  The Lip Dub was a fun way to bring the whole school community together to continue to Find Our Strong!  All of these activities are steps to ensure we continue to focus on raising student achievement and creating a positive culture at Frost.
