    FYI: Future Band Opportunities at Greenbrier
    This week, the whole school enjoyed a concert by the Greenbrier Beginning Band!  Students in D25 begin their band experience in fifth grade.  There are many instruments from which students may choose.  There is no requirement for previous musical experience for most instruments, but if a student wishes to learn percussion (drums, mallets, bells, etc.), there is a requirement that the student must first have 2 years of formal piano lessons.  More information about this and all the instruments offered in fifth grade and beyond may be found here:  Elementary Band Information

    Advanced Placement Information

    The advanced placement process will occur in May after the school year's testing windows have closed. Percentiles on the most recent CogAT and the highest of three MAP scores will be converted to a standard score (or z-score) before averaging, which provides a standardized way to compare data. The district will also calculate local percentiles for both assessments at this time. Families will receive placement information in mid-May. Only families of students who are new qualifiers to Advanced Math (grades 4-7) and Advanced Language Arts (grades 6-8) will receive letters. If a student is enrolled in an advanced course this school year, they will automatically be enrolled for next year. Please review the FAQ document for answers to more specific questions regarding the placement process. If you still have questions after reviewing, please contact Katie Paulson at kpaulson@sd25.org.

    Solar Eclipse - April 8th

    On April 8, a total eclipse will be visible in the Chicagoland area. The following is the timeline for the total solar eclipse in the Chicagoland area:

    12:51 pm Total Eclipse Begin
    2:08 pm Max Point of the Total Eclipse
    3:22 pm Total Eclipse Ends

    It can be damaging to our eyes to stare directly into the sun during a total eclipse. Because of this, I wanted to reach out to you to let you know our plan for that day to ensure the safety of our students and staff:

    No recess during the time frame of the total eclipse (unless the weather and cloud coverage permits)

    Solar Eclipse - April 8th

    On April 8, a total eclipse will be visible in the Chicagoland area. The following is the timeline for the total solar eclipse in the Chicagoland area:

    12:51 pm Total Eclipse Begin
    2:08 pm Max Point of the Total Eclipse
    3:22 pm Total Eclipse Ends

    It can be damaging to our eyes to stare directly into the sun during a total eclipse. Because of this, I wanted to reach out to you to let you know our plan for that day to ensure the safety of our students and staff:

    No recess during the time frame of the total eclipse (unless the weather and cloud coverage permits)
