Parents, we need your help!
We are in need of your input on the 5Essentials Survey! The feedback that we have received in past years has helped us make decisions for school improvement. We need a minimum of 20% of our families to respond to the survey in order to get a report. We are currently only at 12%! Please help our school receive the report that we need by logging on today to take this short survey. https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

District #301 “Wake Up Call” presentation January 23rd
Central District 301, in partnership with the Kane County Juvenile Justice Council, is pleased to invite you to Wake Up Call, a presentation for parents and guardians of students in middle or high school. This presentation teaches guardians about the signs and symptoms associated with substance abuse, current drug trends, parenting strategies to prevent substance use, and more. During this presentation, participants receive a guided tour of a bedroom highlighting more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use, as well as household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. In addition, we will host a resource fair immediately before and after the presentation. Please click the link below to view the full Wake Up Call flyer.
Wake Up Call will be held on Wednesday, January 23rd beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Central High School auditorium, with the resource fair beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the CHS commons. Participants must register for this free event by visiting https://wakeupcallcentralhs.eventbrite.com. This event is open to the community but attendees must be at least 21 years of age. You can learn more about Your Choice to Live, Inc., the presenters of Wake Up Call, by visiting our website at https://central301.net/blog/2018/12/11/wake-up-call-parent-presentation/.
