Hello Spring Brook Parents –

Win a Pajama Day for Your Child! – 5Essentials Survey

Parents across Illinois once again have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of your child’s school as it relates to the important elements of school effectiveness.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered online by the University of Chicago. All survey responses will be kept confidential. The state will provide survey results for individual schools only if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. Currently, 18% of parents have completed the survey. If we reach 20%, students will get a Pajama Day! If you have children attending more than one school, we ask that you complete the survey for each school.

To take this short survey:

1. Visit

2. Type and select “Dupage” as "County." (The county is the location of the school district's main office.)

3. Type your school's name into the "School" field and select your school.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are ten times more likely to improve student learning. The five indicators that effect school success are effective leaders, collaborative teachers, involved families, supportive environments, and ambitious instruction.

Thank you for your feedback.

LMC Volunteer Needed

We are looking for one additional LMC (Library Media Center) volunteer.

The open shift is for every other Wednesday from 9:00-11:00 a.m.

During shifts, volunteers check-in books, interact with students that visit the LMC (assist kids with picking out / finding appropriate books), help check-out materials, assist in the MakerSpace, shelve books, and help with special projects. It is a fun way to become involved at Spring Brook and meet teachers, students, and Spring Brook families!

If you are interested in this position, please email me at
