5 Essentials Survey - Parent Notice

posted Feb 22, 2021, 8:05 AM by John Pearson


 February 22, 2021



Dear Parent or Guardian,


We are writing to inform you about a student survey that will be administered at EAWR called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This is the ninth year the Illinois State Board of Education will implement this survey across the state. This survey is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. It asks students about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.


Student participants will be required to log-in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.


Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials website (


If you do not want your son or daughter to participate, print this document, fill out the information below, and ask your child to return this sheet to his or her teacher or the office. If you approve of your son/daughter completing the survey, you need to do nothing further.


Thank you for your cooperation,


Dr. John S. Pearson,




                                                (Please Print)


I DO NOT want my child, ____________________________, to take part in the 2020-                                   CHILD’S NAME (PLEASE PRINT)


21 Illinois 5Essentials Survey.

Basketball Returns Feb. 5th!

posted Feb 4, 2021, 7:27 AM by John Pearson   [ updated Feb 4, 2021, 7:41 AM ]

As of this morning, we were notified that Madison County and the other counties in our Region IV are finally in Phase IV, which means that we can play basketball games.

However, tickets will not be sold to the general public, since we may only allow 50 spectators, with our girl and boy basketball players being given a share of tickets to give to their family. The only other folks admitted to the Gym will be both teams, both schools' cheerleaders, a few game workers and limited media, and the pep band.

Since all schools will likely enforce their rules the same way, there is a good chance that our parents and fans will not be admitted at the away gym.

Fans can watch the home games via live stream for a subscription fee to the NFHS network via our new Pixelot cameras for $10.99 per month (or a cheaper annual subscription). Our first boys basketball game will be tomorrow night vs. Maryville Christian H.S (2/5/21). The first home girls basketball game will be on Saturday (2/6/21), at 2:00 PM. Other schools on our schedule may 

See the graphic schedule below.
