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.
 
Turkey Trot:
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)

Report Cards:
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.
 
Churchill Winter Craft Night:   Winter Craft Night December 5
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 jennmaze@gmail.com 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.

We had another great week here at Churchill. Our Pride Board is really filling up with all of the wonderful pictures of family members who have served our country. This board truly makes our Veteran’s day celebrations special. We are also encouraging our students to wear red, white and blue on November 11th to honor our Veterans.  Please help remind them.
 
Turkey Trot
On Saturday, November 15th our Turkey Trot will take place at Eisenhower Junior High.
Race Times: 
Grades—K-1-2-3  8:30 am-10:00 am
Grades—4-5-6 10:30 am-12:00 pm      
Who:   All Kindergarten-6th graders from Churchill, MacArthur, Lincoln Prairie, Muir and Armstrong
New:  This year parents can run a 2×400 relay with their children following the regularly scheduled races.
Permission slips must be in to Mr. Wroblewski by Friday, November 14.
 
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. 
 
Starting this testing season and similar to how PARCC will be administered to students in grades 3-8, the MAP test will be web-based on a secure browser.  This web-based format does not change the test or how student results are calculated, but it does provide many advantages including more question types across broader ranges of levels, better proctoring tools for teachers, and additional reports for teachers so we can continuously improve our instruction based on these results.
 
We are excited to see the growth our students have made since the fall MAP administration.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
 
Cold Weather
The weather is changing more quickly than we would probably prefer, but we need to be prepared!  Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather as they do go outside every day for lunch recess. 
 
PTA Family Fun Nights and School Events:
November 11-PTA Meeting 7:00
November 15- Turkey Trot
November 19- 3/4 performance
December 5- PTA Family Fun Night-winter crafts
December 8- PTA Meeting 7:00
December 19- Winter Parties
 
Have a great weekend!

The staff and students at Churchill want to thank everyone who came out to watch our parade, help with our Halloween parties, or sent in treats for us to enjoy.  We had a wonderful day and hope everyone enjoyed a very cold Halloween.
