Oak Prairie School has Fourteen Apply for the IESA Scholar Attitude Award

Oak Prairie School recently had fourteen students apply for the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Scholar Attitude Award.  These students - Anelise Di Giovanni, Francesca Frieri, Kailyn Mitchell, Carlie Mitchell, Sammie Weisner, Kaira Stricklin, Dania Sweis, Eileen Ferriter, Emma Schmutzler, Braeden Goebbert, Gabriel Czako, Carly Pearson, Cameryn DeBlecourt, and Vanessa Scialabba - had to meet and exceed the following requirements to apply: be of eighth grade status, have a minimum 3.5 grade-point-average (on a 4.0 scale), and participation in at least one IESA activity during each of his or her junior high years and demonstration of outstanding citizenship during their tenure. In addition, each student is required to submit a typed essay titled "The Value of Sportsmanship."

"The IESA Scholar Attitude Award recognizes the academic success, activity participation, and community involvement of the students in our member schools. The students who are honored as the IESA Scholar Attitude Award winners are among the best and brightest in Illinois. They are the young leaders in their school and community who dream to do great things as junior high school students and become the leaders in their high school years and beyond," said IESA Executive Director Steve Endsley. "Truly, every student who applies for the award is a winner and is an outstanding candidate. Unfortunately, only one student from each membership division will be chosen and recognized. In many cases, it is an honor to be the school's nominee."

Begun in 1999, the IESA Scholar Attitude Award currently honors 15 outstanding eighth-grade students, one from each of the 15 IESA geographic Board of Directors divisions.  The IESA Scholar Attitude Award has honored 364 students – three of which hailed from Oak Prairie School – from 205 different schools throughout Illinois since the program was first started. One student from each school who is considered exemplary is eligible to be chosen.  The 2018 Scholar Attitude Award luncheon will be Tuesday, May 1 at the DoubleTree Hotel, Bloomington.

The Illinois Elementary School Association is a not-for-profit organization of 950 public and private grade, middle and junior high schools. The IESA is the nation's only organization of its kind for students in grades five-eight.

Illinois Youth Survey

Dear Eighth Grade Families,

On Thursday, January 11th, Oak Prairie will be administering the Illinois Youth Survey to eighth grade students.  Students will be asked to complete an on-line survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be confidentially administered in their English Language Arts classes.  Participation in the survey is voluntary and privacy will be strictly protected.  The purpose of the survey is to better understand the behaviors of Illinois youth related to both problems that some students experience and academic success.  The survey was developed for middle and high school students by the Center for Prevention Research and Development of the University of Illinois.  The results of this survey will help organizations including District 92 and Will County provide programs to support students in our area and across Illinois. 

Included in the survey are questions on: drug and alcohol use and access; student feelings about their school experience; family communication about substance use; and student feelings about themselves and health behaviors.  Students will be informed prior to the survey that they do not have to participate and they can skip any questions.  

If you do not want your student to participate in the survey or you have any additional questions, please contact Oak Prairie Principal Mark Murray at 815-836-2724 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Additional information and a copy of the survey are available at iys.cprd.illinois.edu.  While we recognize that the subjects of this survey can be challenging, the results will be valuable to District 92 and other organizations in targeting efforts to meet the needs of our students today and in the future.

District 92 Communication Survey Garners Positive Results

During the past summer, District 92 administered a survey to families to gather feedback on communication efforts.  The survey was developed in furtherance of the District 92 Community Goal that includes the objective: ensure reciprocal communication between the community and district.  There was a total of 157 responses to the survey.  A review of the results reveals very positive feedback.  57.7% of respondents indicated that they were highly satisfied with communication from the district while another 32.7 noted that they were satisfied—leaving in excess of 90% of respondents with a favorable impression of district communication efforts.  Data also demonstrates high levels of use and favorable impressions of most communication tools being utilized within the district.  Efforts will continue in the coming months to improve outreach to the D92 community based upon these results. The survey will be repeated on an annual basis to allow for ongoing feedback from District families in this vital area.
