#ChurchillPride – September 6, 2019
Dear Families of Churchill,
What a great week! Our third through sixth grade students have shown how responsible they can be by bringing their Chromebooks home each day and remembering to bring them back to school powered up and ready to go!.
Our students have done an amazing job completing the MAP assessment. Teachers use the assessment results collected during the fall, winter and spring testing sessions to determine student needs and guide their instruction. We are impressed with how well our students attended to the tests. It is obvious that they are fully invested in their education.
Steve Kern, Principal Carol Novak, Assistant Principal
Clubs registration forms for our students in first through sixth grades went home with the students today. Please be sure to return completed forms to your child’s teacher by Friday, September 13th. Forms turned in late will not be considered until we complete the initial club assignment process.

Run to Read
District 54 is hosting its annual Run to Read, which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019 at Dirksen Elementary School in Schaumburg. The day includes school mascot races at 7:30 a.m., 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children at 8 a.m., a 5K run at 9 a.m. and a 1-mile family walk at 9:15 a.m. Although you can register at any time, even the morning of the race, you will save $5 and be guaranteed a t-shirt in the size you requested if you register by Friday August 30. The Run to Read is an awesome opportunity to promote healthy living by encouraging your children to exercise, or even better, by joining them on the walk or run. The event also supports our goal of collecting 1,000 children’s books for every classroom in District 54. To register, visit sd54.org/runtoread.
As a school we practice a variety of emergency drills with our students. Please read the District letter regarding these practices.
