2nd graders in Miss Thomason's and Mrs. Phares's class used a new AR app today to work on spelling. The students used Catchy Words AR to pop bubbles full of letters and then caught them and placed them in the correct boxes to spell words. It was a super fun and active way to practice spelling!

TCUSD3 Parents - Wee need your help! ​This is a reminder to participate in the parent survey supplement, part of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey administration. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole. A parent survey report will be generated if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to building principals and Dr. Chris Dougherty and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by TCUSD3 parents. Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Teachers and 4th through 12th graders throughout Illinois are taking the teacher and student 5Essentials Survey. School-level 5Essentials Reports will be generated if teachers and/or students meet their 50 percent response-rate thresholds. These research-based reports will be sent to schools and districts in March and will also be included in the State School Report Card, released statewide in the fall. Please visit to take the parent survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact UChicago Impact Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or
