Statewide Illinois Science Assessment results have been finalized. Data from our 30-district area can be viewed here. The biggest shout-out goes to 5th grade. Last spring's 5th grade, our current 6th grader's, ranked 16th statewide out of 713 districts taking the assessment!
Williamsfield Schools 5th grade ranks 16th out of 713 districts statewide!
WOW! AMAZING! In addition, when the 2 years of the assessment are averaged, our 5th grade ranks #1 in the 30 district area. HOORAY 5TH GRADE!
Middle school and high school scores/rankings mirror PARCC results. Our 2 year averages rank 15th in the area at the 8th grade level and 17th for Biology. With Biology, it's important to keep in mind our kids take Biology as Freshmen. Some schools wait until their kids are older to take Biology. Regardless, kids test the year they take it.
We are very proud of the work our teachers are doing to transition to the Next Generation Science Standards. We look forward to more and more of our kids earning "proficient" scores on the Illinois Science Assessment each spring.
Billtown Cafe is pleased with the excellent response to our cuisine again this year! As we unveil new and exciting items to keep your kids eating healthy, it is more important than ever to keep an eye on your child’s account. So far this year we have asked that you keep your student’s charges to a maximum of $15.00. Thanks to all of you who are utilizing www.myschoolbucks.com to preload the meal account or who are sending money to Billtown Cafe.
If you are one of the few who still owes $15.00 or more on your child’s account, please be advised that beginning Monday, September 19th, your child will not be served a meal. Please make arrangements with Nancy Brown, Food Service Director, prior to that date or send cold lunch from that date forward until your past due account is brought current. In the meantime, your child may pay cash for lunch, breakfast, milk or other items.
It is important to note that beginning October 1st, no one may charge any item unless there is a credit on his or her account. Much like a checking account, unless there is money in the account, no items may be purchased. To put money in your child’s account, you may use a debit or credit card on the myschoolbucks website or bring cash or check to the snack bar cashier between 7:45 am and 3:15 pm on school days. You may also mail a check to Billtown Cafe 325 W. Kentucky Ave., Williamsfield IL. 61489.
