  District 209 Students Prepare for State Tests

 
 

Students at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High Schools, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy will begin a season of high stakes testing on Tuesday, March 3, when juniors take the ACT college entrance exam.

This year’s testing will be different from years past, however.

The Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE) is gone, replaced by the new PARCC, or Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, assessments. The PARCC exams are part of the implementation of the new Common Core Standards that went into effect in the District this school year.

  34 Inducted Into National Honor Society at Proviso East

 
 

The Proviso East High School National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 34 new members at its spring ceremony on February 24 at Proviso East High School.

To be inducted into the National Honor Society, a student needs to have at least four semesters in which they earn a grade point average of at least 3.0 of a possible 4.0. The students who meet this criterion are then contacted and invited to submit an application in which they answer questions about their leadership skills and community service as well as write an essay on why they believe they should be inducted.

During the ceremony, which was attended by Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of District 209, and Ms. Readith Ester, a District 209 Board of Education member, the National Honor Society’s leadership spoke of the main qualities of a member of the society: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Ms. Marcia LaPorte, a Proviso East art teacher and the faculty advisor for the Proviso East National Honor Society chapter, said that the current members and the new members embodied those qualities through programs such as the annual Breakfast with Santa in December and the new community garden.

  District 209 Schools, Offices Closed March 2 for Pulaski Day

 
 

Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy as well as the administrative offices of Proviso Township High Schools District 209 will be closed for the Pulaski Day holiday on Monday, March 2.

All offices in District 209 will reopen for regular business hours on Tuesday, March 3. This is a reminder that the originally scheduled building institute day with no student attendance has been moved to Tuesday, March 10. This is due to March 3 and 4 having been designated by the state as standardized testing days, with students taking the ACT Plus Writing exam on March 3 and the ACT WorkKeys exam on March 4.

Under the change, students will now be in school on March 3, but will not attend class on March 10. On March 3, juniors will report to school at the normal time of 7:50 a.m. and depart after testing. Buses will pick up freshmen, sophomores, and seniors five hours later than usual on March 3 and four hours later than usual on March 4. Their day will follow a modified bell schedule.

A building institute day for faculty and staff training will take place on March 10.

Have a great weekend!

 
  Proviso East Automotive Program Featured on WGN News

 
 

Students and instructors in the automotive program at Proviso East High School were featured in a segment on the WGN-TV News on February 20.

The nearly three-minute feature, reported by Ms. Sarah Jindra, a WGN-TV traffic reporter, detailed what the program covers and its need for donations of vehicles on which students can learn. The story told of how the 250 students in the mechanics class have only three vehicles on which to work. The others had been either been damaged beyond repair by debris from a fire at Proviso East in May 2014 or stolen from the school’s lot.

Interviewed in the story were Mr. Frank Bexes and Mr. Dan Cox, the class’ instructors, as well as several students.
