    This summer we will be completely remodeling this space, along with the 181 and 184 classrooms to a new “180 Wing”.  This space will include a new model classroom that will serve Business and English classes, a pair of classrooms that will open to one large classroom, as well as 3 additional classrooms.  Our current woodshop and classroom will move to the north side of the building where the current Autos classroom is.  These new learning spaces will be open to start the 2017 school year and will be a great segway into our larger construction project.

    Dual Credit for Students
    We would like to inform you that Leyden High Schools and Triton College are providing new opportunities for your high school student to earn dual credit during the school day at Leyden High Schools. There is no cost or extra time associated with this opportunity. Students earn both college and high school credit for specific classes taken at Leyden. Students who want to take advantage of dual credit will be required to fill out an application (instructions attached) and take the Accuplacer college readiness assessment on 5/23 at East Leyden during the final exam make up period (11:50-1:20) in the Student Cafeteria.

    We are excited to partner with Triton College to provide quality education right here at Leyden for our students. Leyden High Schools has expanded its dual college credit course offerings to eight classes: Graphic Design II, Photo II, CLEP Accounting Honors, Cuisine Chef, Pastry Chef, Metals II, PLTW Intro to Engineering Design Honors, PLTW Principles of Engineering Honors. Your student is enrolled in one of these classes for the 2017-18 school year.

    This partnership provides an excellent opportunity for your children to gain a head start on their college pursuits while still in high school. This can reduce the number of courses needed to obtain a postsecondary certificate or degree, and save money.

    Congratulations to East and West Students
    Congratulazioni to all of the East and West students who took the 2017 AATI (American Association of Italian Teachers) National Italian Exam Contest! Click here (https://goo.gl/t4PLGY) for the list of those who placed in the state and nationally and those who earned Honorable Mention.

    13 Reasons Why
    As parents of high school students, we wanted you to be aware of a new series on Netflix called 13 Reasons Why. The show is about a high school student who commits suicide. Some of the episodes are graphic in nature and include scenes involving sexual assault, substance abuse and the event of the suicide.
    We've noticed that some of our students are talking about the show. The message of the show has been controversial and some of us are concerned that it projects a distasteful view of life as a high school student.  It is our recommendation that parents use this as an opportunity to question if this show is appropriate for your child. If your child is sensitive to the things they watch and easily influenced, it is possible this show may have a strong negative effect on your child. Many online sources recommend this show only for viewers 17 years old and older.
    If your child has already viewed the series, we encourage you to sit down with them and speak openly about what the series meant to him/her. It is also an opportunity as parents to talk about the alternatives to suicide when feeling sad, anxious and overwhelmed with the stress of life.
    Leyden has a resource page built to help students and parents find helpful resources related to self-care. It can be found here.
    The National Association of School Psychologists have prepared a helpful resource for parents and educators, 13 Reasons Why Netflix series: Considerations for educators, which we encourage parents to read.
    As always, please call my school office at 847-451-3025 if you have any questions.

    Student Services Update
    Freshmen: Freshmen students concluded their first year of Group Guidance by completing a post-survey/reflection on the lesson objectives and curriculum. We also explained what they should expect of the sophomore Group Guidance curriculum, which will involve “linking” their skills, interests and abilities to potential postsecondary plans.
    Seniors: Senior students spent their final lesson identifying their postsecondary plan and gathering the necessary forms and documents they will need to put their plan into action following graduation. We also surveyed the entire class with our annual needs assessment and a postsecondary plan survey, which will help inform our group guidance curriculum moving forward.

    Student Services Update
    ATTENTION ALL PARENTS: Registration for Leyden Parent University is nearly filled!
    Don’t miss the following upcoming event that is JUST FOR YOU!!! (Due to space, LPU cannot accommodate students or children. Thank you!)
    Register Today for Leyden Parent University on Saturday, May 13 from 9a-12:30p. Leyden Parent University will assist YOU in best supporting your child’s success both during and after high school.  Sessions will be delivered in both English and Spanish and the event will include both lunch and a chance to win a scholarship give-away for your child! Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Full description of the event: English / Spanish.  For session information, visit the Leyden Parent University website!

    Freshmen:
    Freshmen students have met twice with their individual counselor over the past two months in Freshmen Group Guidance.  In March, students learned about effective ways to problem-solve and communicate with teachers in difficult situations. In April, students learned about the difference between a Growth Mindset and a Fixed Mindset - they then participated in an activity in which they practiced using growth mindset statements in every-day academic situations. Ask your student what their tendency is toward - a fixed or a growth mindset?

    Juniors:
    Juniors are currently attending their third and final Group Guidance lesson. The lesson’s focus is on considering all of the postsecondary options that fit their plan. They are spending time researching what they should be doing now and over the summer to be prepared to put their plan in action at the beginning of senior year!

    Redefining Ready! National Scholarship Launch-Students tell how they are more than a score
    aasa

    Dear Redefining Ready! Supporters, 
    Thank you for your support in the Redefining Ready! movement. Further supporting the initiative, we are excited to announce the 2017 Redefining Ready! National Scholarship.
    The scholarship contest lets America's graduating high school seniors tell the world how they are college, career and life ready beyond a single test score. This scholarship is funded by Hobsons and is in line with the national AASA Redefining Ready! movement.
    Sixteen scholarships will be awarded to high school graduating seniors, including a grand prize of $5,000.
    As part of the scholarship, students must submit a 30-second video on Twitter that uses one or more of the Redefining Ready! metrics to demonstrate college and career readiness. Examples include completion of an internship, AP or dual credit classes while in high school; near-perfect attendance; or participation in clubs, sports and school activities.
    Winners will be determined by an AASA-selected committee based on the 30-second video entry and a short written prompt. Creativity counts, but so does honest, authentic and compelling content.
    The scholarship contest is now open and closes on Monday, May 22. For more information and official contest rules, visit www.redefiningready.org/national-scholarship.
    We encourage you to get your senior students involved. Please share with your colleagues and students. Note: We have created a sample "Communications Toolkit" for you to help spread the word at https://www.redefiningready.org/communications-toolkit. 
    Thank you in advance for your support!

    REMINDER FOR INCOMING FRESHMAN STUDENTS/RECORDATORIOS PARA ESTUDIANTES DEL PRIMER AÑO

    Per Illinois state law, all incoming freshman students must have a physical examination taken within a year prior to entering 9th grade.  All freshman medical forms are due in the East Leyden High School Health Office by June 1, 2017. Students may not start school until all medical forms are turned in and checked for completion by the school health aide. Keep in mind that a sports physical does not fulfill the requirement for a freshman physical. Please make your student’s physical examination appointment NOW so that late fees can be avoided.

    Por ley del estado de Illinois todos los estudiantes de primer año deben tener un examen físico recibido dentro de un año antes de entrar en el noveno grado. Todas las formas médicas del primer año se deben entregar a la Oficina de Salud East Leyden High School antes del 1 de junio de 2017.  Los estudiantes no pueden comenzar la escuela hasta que todos los formularios médicos se entregan y se comprueban por la ayudante de salud en la escuela. Tenga en cuenta que un examen físico para deportes no cumple el requisito para un examen físico de primer año. Por favor, haga la cita del examen físico de su hijo/a ahora para que las multas finales puedan ser evitadas.
