5th Grade Animal Shelter Project


No Kill Shelter Collection

Mrs. Hollenkamp’s 5th Grade class, at Sandoval Elementary School, has been collecting items for the House of Hope, a no kill shelter for animals in Centralia.  Their reading story for the week was about a schnauzer and that prompted them to want to collect items for the shelter.  Almost all of the students, including their teacher, have a soft spot for animals.

Illinois 5Essentials Survey

This survey is based on the Five Essentials for School Success, an evidence-based framework developed by the University of Chicago. This framework identifies how school performance on five factors or “essentials” can indicate important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. Prior research has shown that schools strong on three or more of the 5Essentials were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains than schools weak on three or more of the Essentials. Those 5Essentials are:

  • Effective Leaders
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environment
  • Ambitious Instruction

This is a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and parents to have a voice in improving their schools.  From March 17 through April 25, teachers, students, and parents will be asked to take a 20-minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment.
