Have you completed the online portion of your child’s registration for next year?  This step is critical information for us as we plan how many classrooms and teachers are needed for next year. Your child will not be placed in a class or on a bus route until the online registration is complete. IF YOU ARE NOT RETURNING NEXT YEAR, PLEASE SEND BACK THE PAPER FORM YOU RECEIVED IN THE MAIL WITH YOUR SIGNATURE AND THE “NOT RETURNING” BOX CHECKED.  Thank you for completing the registration process on time.  If you have any questions, please contact the District Office at 847-990-4200.

FIELD DAY WAS FABULOUS

A very special thank you to our PE teachers for organizing a fantastic field day.  Our students had so much fun at the various relays such as the Chopstick relay, the castle building relay, the golf ball relay, and one of their all time favorites, the pizza delivery relay.  The music was playing and Regal the Eagle made an appearance as well.  Many thanks to our parent volunteers, too, who were instrumental in running some of the events.  We couldn’t do it without you!

GIRLS ON THE RUN FUNDRAISER

The Girls on the Run team is having a fund raiser to help support Orphans of the Storm.  Orphans of the Storm is a homeless shelter for animals.  There is a large blue bucket in the lobby to donate items like old towels, blankets, and toys, and a recycle bin for much needed newspaper donations.  There will be a green bucket in your classroom for money donations.  The class that donates the most will win a small prize!  Look at the posters around school for more information or ask a Girls on the Run member.  The fund raiser will end on Friday June 1st!!  Thank you!
