Winter Break Reading Log

Winter Portillo's Reading Log InformantionWinter break is a time to relax and enjoy time with the family.  This can also be a great time to foster a love of reading for pleasure.  This winter break we are encouraging students to find books to read and include on their reading log. This week students will be bringing home a reading log with a reading goal set by their classroom teacher. Students who complete the log and turn it in after the vacation will receive a coupon good for a piece of cake at Portillo’s.

Here are some additional family friendly activities to try at home over break to keep reading and writing present this holiday season!

District 54 Windy City Bulls Night – Dec. 20

The Windy City Bulls will host a District 54 takeover night on Wednesday, Dec. 20, at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, and a portion of the proceeds from each ticket purchased will be donated back to the District 54 Education Foundation to provide breakfast to students from financially struggling families. Click here for more information or to purchase tickets.

Come see the Churchill Dance Club perform.

5 Essentials Survey:

We currently have had 5% of the Churchill families complete the 5 Essentials survey.  This is an extremely important survey.  Please take the time to complete this survey so that we can use your feedback as a part of our school improvement planning process.  We need to have at least 20% of the families respond, for the results to be included in results.

Please go to the following link and complete the survey prior to January 31st.  Our goal is have over 20% of our households complete the survey.  Please help Churchill set the record for having the highest parent participation rate in District 54!

District 54 Cold Weather Response Plan

In order to help parents better prepare for the severe cold weather and snow we often get during winters in our community, I wanted to share with you the District 54 Severe Cold Weather Response Plan. Though District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open and operational, circumstances beyond our control oftentimes dictate school closings.
