Well it looks like we have skipped fall and went directly to winter. Please remind your children to bundle up and be prepared to go outside. Remember we do line up outside each morning and spend approximately 20 minutes of each lunch outside as well. A special thanks to everyone who helped our students gain appreciation for our Veterans. Our Pride Board seems to have a new picture each day, our Churchill Choir did an amazing job singing The National Anthem, our staff shared books, our students wrote thank you letters and our very own Mr. Wroblewski shared some of his experiences with our students of when he was serving in the Army. The students had many questions for him and loved seeing his uniform and medals.
We hope to see many of you at the Turkey Trot tomorrow. Bundle up and enjoy the race!
We will be at Eisenhower Junior High from 8:30-12:00.
3/4 Performance next Wednesday, November 19th
A Musical Journey Around the World
When: Wednesday, November 19th students arrive at 6:45 (concert at 7:00)
Where: Eisenhower Junior High School Gym
Attire: Nice black clothes (slacks, skirts, dresses) with solid color accents (solid color shirt, scarf, sweater)
Hard to believe but today marks the end of the first trimester and report cards are coming out on November 25th. This is a perfect time of the year for students to reflect upon the goals they set in September and revisit their plans for success. Report cards will be sent home on November 25th. As always, if you have questions, please give your child’s teacher a call.
Once again our PTA is planning an amazing opportunity for our community. Our traditional winter craft night will be held on, Friday December 5th 5:30-8pm. This is a great night for students to come and create their own holiday crafts! All children will receive a ticket for 1 FREE craft. There are also other FREE activities to do too! Additional tickets for crafts can be purchased for $1 each. This is a great way to make a present for someone special!
We are still in need of volunteers for this great event! Please contact Jenn Maze at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.372.2182 if you have an hour to spare! This is a great way for a high school sibling to get service points too!
Winter MAP testing
The next round of MAP testing begins November 17, 2014. We are excited to monitor the progress of the goals we reviewed with your child earlier this year. Shortly after the conclusion of the MAP testing window, we will share those results with you.
