#ChurchillPride – October 5, 2018

Good afternoon,

What an amazing week! We were able to attend a few of the conferences.  Our students demonstrated how dedicated they are! The 54 Promise and individual goals that students set showed a deep level of reflection on the part of the students.  

Together, we build… success through a strong home / school partnership.  Thank you for dedicating the time to come to school for a conference. Your participation in the conference illustrated to your child your commitment to their continued success. Please always remember that you do not need to wait until conferences if you have questions or need support.  Our continued collaboration with ensure the academic and social emotional growth of each of our children.

Have a great long weekend, we will see our children next week  on Tuesday!

Anti-Bullying Presentation for Parents – Oct. 9

As you know, District 54 is committed to ensuring the academic success and social-emotional well-being of all students. This fall we introduced a new social-emotional learning curriculum at all grade levels focused on the belief that each child deserves to be Healthy, Safe, Engaged, Supported and Challenged.

We value our relationships with our students’ parents as we work together to support the children in this community. Therefore, District 54 will host a presentation for parents and other adults in our community about the negative effects of bullying and what we can do as a community to create a culture of kindness and respect.

Humanity Rising is partnering with Kirk Smalley of Stand for the Silent to deliver this powerful message in October, National Bullying Prevention Month. Mr. Smalley will talk about how his own son committed suicide after being bullied.

The presentation will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at our Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg. Click here to access the flyer for the event.

We hope you will make plans to join us. And please reach out to us if there is ever anything we can do to better support your child.
