Early Learning Supplies 2017-2018
Illinois State Board of Education partially funds our programming through grants. Grant guidelines state that programs cannot post and request school supplies. Grant funds will supply teachers with basic supplies for the school year. Your child’s teacher may post “wish lists” throughout the year and parents have the option to contribute if you are able. Items that your child should have for school are:
2. Extra set of clothes
3. Diapers/pulls up and wipes if your child is not yet toilet trained
If you are able or wish to contribute other basic school supplies such as washable markers, crayons, etc, feel free to make a donation to the classroom. However, no child will be without the necessary supplies to participate fully in our daily programming activities.
Unit 5 has been involved with Vision 20/20, which is a student‐centered vision for the future of education in Illinois. It focuses on four policy priorities: highly effective educators, 21st century learning, shared accountability, and equitable and adequate funding. To learn more about Vision 20/20, click here.
