Today quarter two progress reports were given to your student to take home. Please take some time this evening with your student to review his or her current progress at school. If you have questions about a grade, please contact the teacher directly. Please note, team Endeavor will be sending the progress reports home on Friday in the Friday Folders. If you would like further information about how to access your student’s grades and why we are no longer mailing the progress reports, please click here.

November 18 through November 22, Urbana Middle School will hold an Intruder Alert Drill as required by the School Safety Drill Act. All USD 116 schools and administrative offices will be holding drills. Urbana Police will visit UMS during the week to facilitate the drill on a date and time determined by the Urbana Police. Staff and students will practice the Intruder Alert Drill with the focus on alerting, informing, lockdown, and evacuation. As always the safety and security of our students is our utmost importance and we appreciate the support of the Urbana Community during this time of review, drill and practice.

Today I had the unique opportunity to spend an extended amount of time the State Representative for the 103rd District (most of Urbana School District), Naomi Jakobsson. This was part of the Illinois Principals Association “Principal for a Day” program, a statewide initiative to provide state and federal elected officials with an opportunity to observe, interact, and serve as an administrator in schools within their legislative district. This activity is designed to promote continued collaboration among legislators, administrators, staff, parents, and students in defining the direction of education.
