Posted August 25, 2015 - Ball-Chatham Teachers Write Social Science Standards
Ball-Chatham Teachers Chosen to Write New Social Science Standards for Illinois
Glenwood Intermediate School social studies and science teachers, Corie Yow, and Katie Elvidge, respectively, were recently chosen to help lead a statewide task force charged with rewriting Illinois Social Science Learning Standards.
 
The two Ball-Chatham teachers, social science colleagues from around the state, as well as representatives from Illinois-based universities and social studies organizations spent the past school year reviewing the current Illinois Learning Standards for Social Science; the National Council for Social Studies College, Career and Civic Life Framework; and the recent social science standards work of various states in order to rewrite the new standards. Yow and Elvidge were selected to jointly lead the group of task force members challenged to write the middle level portion of the new standards. Read more...

Posted August 18, 2015 - Driver Safety Reminder
Driver Safety in School Zones and in Parking Lots/Drives
Illinois law states: When approaching a marked school zone on days when school is in operation and children are present, a driver must discontinue wireless/cell-phone use, reduce speed to 20 mph, and stop and yield the right-of-way to any children or adults in the crosswalk area. In addition, drivers are reminded to obey the regulatory or guide signs in our parking lots, as marked. This is especially important for the safety of our children as they are being dropped off before school, or picked up after. Finally, please remember that all traffic must stop while school bus “stop” arms are out and buses are loading and unloading students – including all school facilities, roads, drives, parking lots, etc. By law, drivers are not allowed to pass a stopped school bus when the stop arm is displayed. Thank you!
