November 2016 Bulletin
A Note from Ms. Collins
Dear WB Families,
As we near the month of November, we remember everything we are thankful for in our lives. I am so thankful for the community at CICS West Belden – the students, the teachers, and all of YOU are simply the best. Thank you to all families for being so committed and so dedicated to your child’s education.
When I reflect on the work that we are doing for our children, I feel so grateful for the team approach we have. We continue to work as a school with our parents and families to ensure the most student growth and greatest academic achievement.
With that said, I have a very exciting announcement to make!
We were notified recently that CICS West Belden is now a 1+ school! This is the highest school ranking that you can receive in the city of Chicago! We completely transformed our school model last year, and it pushed us to the highest level! At WB we say, “We Can and We Will”….and we DID! Congratulations, Bulldogs!
I hope everyone enjoyed Parent-Teacher Conferences this week. Conferences are a great opportunity for parents, students, and teachers to come together as a team to celebrate progress and work towards future goals!
Please know that I am always available if you have any questions, ideas, comments, or feedback to help our school be the best that it can be! Come talk to me anytime!
With the team we have in place this year, we are sure to see greatest achievement yet!
