A Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster School

Principal message, 12 Feb 2018

Dear Ravenswood Families and Friends,

Are you interested in getting involved with Ravenswood in a different way? Are you perhaps interested in local school governance? Consider running for our Local School Council! This spring all CPS schools will hold LSC elections (6 parents, 2 community reps, 2 teachers, 1 paraprofessional and the principal). Participating on the LSC is a great way to support Ravenswood in a different way through approving the budget, evaluating me and by helping lead our school’s improvement plan. You can pick up applications in the office. If you’re interested in learning more, please join us tomorrow for our monthly LSC meeting at 6:30 in the MPR. Alternately, feel free to email either of us at info@ravenswoodelementary.org with any questions.

Switching topics…let’s talk attendance. Our attendance this year is significantly worse than it’s been in the past 4 years. Real talk, people. There is a fairly strong correlation between the amount of time students miss school (even half a day) and how likely they are to start falling behind. If your child has been missing a significant amount of school (more than 5 days), please let us know so we can begin to work with you to help your child get to school every day they are healthy.

Crowdsource Request: Are you a sound/lighting tech genius? Do you dream of moonlighting as a tech roadie for a major rock band? We just might have a way for you to live a small part of that dream by helping us trouble shoot some sound/lighting issues we are having. Please let us know if you’re interested by emailing us at info@ravenswoodelementary.org.

Have a great week, everyone.

Mr. Manaen and Mrs. Welsh
