OES Holiday Night is a free night of family fun and music.  There will be a concert by 1st graders (at 6pm) and 3rd graders (at 7pm).  We will be offering a delicious pasta dinner from Alfano's with a salad bar.  ($2 per person, or no more than $10 per family).  From 5:00-7:00pm there will be various activities and games provided.  Below is the form that needs to be filled out and returned (with money if having dinner) by December 14th.  

2018 Family Holiday Night

This year the OES Student Ambassadors are sponsoring a food and supply drive here at OES. All of the items collected will benefit the Lifeline Food Pantry which is located in Conover Square in Oregon. The food pantry serves the towns of Oregon, Mt. Morris, and Chana, all three of which make up our school district.

Below you will find a list of items that are needed at the pantry. We have broken the list down into items for specific grade levels this year to help with the collection. Please feel free to send any item on the list for any grade. We are asking that you try and bring only the items listed as we know the pantry is in desperate need of these specific items. Our school goal is 1,000 items this year. The food and supply drive will be held from December 3rd – December 19th. Families are welcome to bring items the night of the OES Family Holiday Night as well.

Pre-K thru 2nd Grade Items:  Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Shampoo, Deodorant, Soaps, Brushes, Dish Soap, Laundry Soap

3rd Grade thru 6th Grade Items:  Peanut Butter, Jelly, Pancake Mix, Syrup, Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Soups, Noodles/Rice

Items may be brought in at any time between December 3rd- December 19th. Thank you all for your support of OES and our community! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Stewart at 815-732-5300 ext. 2119.

Accelerated Placement Program

  1. The District provides an Accelerated Placement Program (APP). The APP advances the District’s goal of providing educational programs with opportunities for each student to develop to his or her maximum potential.
  2. The APP provides an educational setting with curriculum options usually reserved for students who are older or in higher grades than the student participating in the APP.
  3. APP options include, but may not be limited to: (a) accelerating a student in a single subject; (b) other grade-level acceleration; and (c) early entrance to kindergarten or first grade.
  4. Participation in the APP is open to all students who demonstrate high ability and who may benefit from accelerated placement. It is not limited to students who have been identified as gifted and talented.
  5. Eligibility to participate in the District’s APP shall not be conditioned upon the protected classifications identified in School Board policy 7:10, Equal Educational Opportunities, or any factor other than the student’s identification as an accelerated learner.
  6. The Superintendent or designee shall implement an APP that includes:
  • Decision-making processes that are fair, equitable, and involve multiple individuals, e.g. District administrators, teachers, and school support personnel, and a student’s parent(s)/guardian(s);
  • Notification processes that notify a student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) of a decision affecting a student’s participation in the APP; and
  • Assessment processes that include multiple valid, reliable indicators.
