Dear South Holland School District 151 Families and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Our students at Taft School (Pre-K – 1), Eisenhower School (2 – 3), Madison School (4 – 5) and Coolidge Middle School (6 – 8) start school on Wednesday, August 7. Our theme for this year is “Climbing to the NEXT Level”.
This year, our students in all grade levels will participate in a new reading/language arts program. Our elementary students (K – 5) will participate in Pearson myView. This program is aligned to the Common Core Standards for English language arts. The new program will help students to develop their reading skills, build strong writing and communication skills, think critically, and build their knowledge through research. Our middle school students (6 – 8) will use a corresponding program called Pearson myPerspectives. This program is also aligned to the Common Core Standards and will help our students take their reading, writing, listening, speaking and research skills to the next level while also building their independence.
