The Churchill Pride – March 5, 2018
Good morning Churchill community,
Happiness is in the air at Churchill! This week our school wrapped up the Underwars Underwear drive for the District 54 Community Closet. We would like to extend our thanks to all of the families that made donations. Through your giving our students learned the importance of helping to take care of others who are in need. This is not a lesson that we can teach with a text book.
Did you know that Churchill Lions have spirit! Don’t forget that every Friday is spirit day here at Churchill. Students and staff are encouraged to wear Churchill gear. If you are looking for a little variety you could wear College / University spirit wear on Fridays instead of the traditional Churchill shirts.
Mark your calendar for a couple special spirit days coming up. On March 21st Churchill will be celebrating the international Happiness day by wearing orange. Let’s wear so much orange that the school absolutely glows!
On Thursday March 22nd we will have another Churchill DAY OF GIVING. All classrooms will be collecting donations for the District 54 food pantry. Our goal is to collect non-perishable goods to be sent to the D54 Food Pantries. Classrooms are setting goals for how many items to collect. Classrooms that make their goal will have an additional recess added to the day on Friday the 23rd. Come on Churchill let’s fill the boxes with donations!
Have a great week!

End of the Trimester
The second trimester ends on March 2, 2018. Report cards will be available via the Parent Portal on March 13. We know that our students will finish strong this term. Please do not hesitate to be in contact with the school or with the teachers of your student if there are any questions or concerns.
Entering the Building Through the Main Entrance
This is also a good time to remind everyone about the importance of school procedures. Please remember that all parents and guardians need to enter the building through the Main Entrance (Door #1) and check into the office. I understand that at times this means having to walk around the building in inclement weather. Thank you in advance for your support of this important safety procedure!
Stay up to date with what is going on at Churchill!

Schaumburg Parent University – March classes
Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are two evening programs scheduled for March.
- Yoga Class (Finding Peace with Your Family) – This class is for parents and students. This class will teach you a variety of yoga styles sure to strengthen your core and increase flexibility. The class will follow the Vinyasa Yoga practice, which is one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States. This type of practice involves synchronizing your breath with a continuous flow of postures. Bring a yoga mat or towel, and water. This class will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on March 14 at the Professional Learning Center, 522 East Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg.
Decoding “I’m Fine” – This event is for adults only. Madelyn Burbank, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, will discuss the subtle impacts of divorce on children. This presentation looks at divorce from the perspective of the child. It blends research and personal experience to explore best practices for mitigating negative consequences. We will look at how to assist your child in adjusting to life post-divorce, including talking to your child about the divorce, managing transition and difficult behaviors, identifying behaviors which may require extra support, navigating co-parenting, parents dating and blending families. There will be a special focus on things you can do, regardless of how the other parent chooses to
- parent. This event will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on March 20 at the Professional Learning Center, 522 East Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg.
