Welcome to Dever Elementary

 SUPPLY DROP OFF – Kindergarten to 8th Grade – August 28th – 8:00am to 9:30am

Looking for a way to make the first day of school a little less hectic? Take advantage of “supply drop-off” day. Classrooms will be open from 8:00am to 9:30am for anyone who would like to drop off supplies. If you’re not able to bring the supplies on August 28th, please send a few supplies each day during the first week of school. There’s no need to carry everything in on the first day.


Class lists will be posted on August 26th.


The office will be open for registration of new students on August 20th, 21st and 22nd from 9:00-3:00. Parents or guardians must bring two current proofs of address and the child's original birth certificate. If the student is transferring from another school bring any documents provided by the previous school.


Summer is a busy time filled with camp, sports, family vacations and simply time to relax. If your child is looking for something interesting to read, check out the suggested books for their 2014-2015 grade level. This recommended reading will help students get a jump start on the new school year. We know that there have been some challenges to finding the books and printing the "think sheets" that we did not anticipate.  If your child is able to read one book or more than one, we appreciate your effort to support their summer learning. There are no required readings or graded assignments. Grade 4 - 8 students can also use their log-in to find interesting articles on Think Cerca. All students have access to the math IXL program. This is also optional. Ms. Nickel's class has already answered 10,000 math problems! We can't wait to see you again and hear about your amazing summer!  

**There are no required readings or math assignments, only suggestions for some great books and a site where students can practice their math.**

Dever Receives Silver Level Status

The Illinois Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports  (PBIS) Network has recognized Dever School at the Silver Level for our implementation of PBIS during the 2013-2014 school year. We were given a decal award that will be displayed at the main entrance. The list of recognized schools will be available at www.pbisillinois.org/schools/school-recognition at the end of June. We are proud to be recognized for providing effective supports for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.


CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness provides information related to recess and weather. The District encourages schools to provide students with the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Please send your child with clothing appropriate for outdoor  recess. These factors are considered when making the outdoor versus indoor recess decision: student safety, temperature, wind chill, humidity, precipitation, ground conditions and air quality.
