Dear Ames School Families-

Your Voice is Essential! The 5Essentials survey is now ready for District 96. Teachers, parents and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the second annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

There are several ways you can access the 5Essentials Survey for Ames School:

Visit the PARENT portion of the 5Essentials Survey at the following link: IL 5Essentials Survey

Visit the link to the PARENT portion of the 5 Essentials Survey on the Ames School web page: www.district96.org/ames/

Visit survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey.

When you get to the 5Essentials website, click on the button “Parent Survey” to begin the survey. You will then enter in the county (“Cook”) and then search for your child’s school (“A.F. Ames School”).

The survey must be completed by March 12, 2015, but we encourage you to complete the survey as soon as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the 5Essentials survey for A.F. Ames School.

Respectfully,

Todd A. Gierman
Principal, A.F. Ames School
