Hello Wonderful Link Community!
This Friday, February 12 marks the date of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. In honor of President Lincoln, we have posted one of his quotes that we find applicable at Link School:
“I will prepare, and some day my chance will come.”
We believe that the preparation and hard work our students put in each day is preparing them for the unique opportunities they will have some day. We never know when that day might come, but we do know that we must prepare for it. We are proud of all Link students and their commitment to success. Thank you for your continued support!
Tomorrow (Wednesday, February 10) is a half-day of school. Students will be dismissed at 11:40 AM. Please also note that there is no school on Monday, February 15 in honor of Presidents’ Day.
Random Acts of Kindness Challenge
We are excited to introduce the Random Acts of Kindness Challenge, which is one week (February 15-19) devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. National Random Acts of Kindness Day is February 17, 2016 and many people will be showing kindness in many different ways. Please read the attachment and join us!

Illinois Report Card and 5Essentials Survey
Teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement. All District 54 parents are encouraged to take this optional survey. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish. Our current response rate is 8%.
To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ through March 11, 2016. When searching for our school name, remember to look up the full name (for example, look under A for Adolph Link Elementary School).
