Food Pantry Locations and Donation Opportunities

As the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, continues to change, District 54 is working with amazing community partners to provide food to families who are struggling financially. Families needing assistance may benefit from the following.

  • Wednesdays:  Willow Creek Community Church will host a mobile food truck distribution from 11 a.m. to noon every Wednesday in the District 54 Rafferty Administration Center parking lot, 524 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg.
  • Thursdays:  District 54 staff will be working with Township High School District 211 to distribute meal bags with five days of lunches, five days of breakfast and a half gallon of milk from 8 to 11 a.m. each Thursday through July 16 at Hoffman Estates High School, 1100 W. Higgins Road in Hoffman Estates. 
  • Fridays:  Willow Creek Community Church will host a food distribution from 4 to 5 p.m. every Friday at Keller Junior High School, 820 Bode Road in Schaumburg.
  • The Schaumburg Township Food Pantry is now running a drive-through pickup from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the township office, One Illinois Blvd. in Hoffman Estates. For more information, please call (847) 732-7166.
  • Church of the Holy Spirit Food Pantry, 1451 Bode Road in Schaumburg, is offering drive-through pickup on Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m. near the garages.
  • Living Hope Food Pantry, 777 Meacham Road in Elk Grove Village, is offering drive-through pickup on Thursdays from 11:30-noon.
  • Trinity Charities Food Pantry, 927 Plum Grove in Schaumburg, is open from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

We would like to thank the number of individuals and organizations who have inquired about how to make donations to help those in our community who may be struggling. We feel the best practice is to work with organizations who are currently offering these services in our community and will therefore not be collecting food. Please do not bring food donations to the district office as previously mentioned.

The Schaumburg Township Food Pantry and many faith-based charities are providing food to families in our community. Click here to access a list of these pantries on the Schaumburg Township website. In order to encourage social distancing, these organizations are not collecting food at this time.

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

The Illinois Department of Human Services has a new special benefit called the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer to help families buy food for children who would normally receive free lunch when schools are in session. To apply online, families should visit https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access and click on Apply for Benefits.

Families that currently receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits do not need to apply for P-EBT benefits. These additional P-EBT benefits will be loaded into Illinois LINK EBT accounts along with regular SNAP benefits. Families that do not currently receive SNAP benefits but do have children who receive free lunch, will need to apply on this website. A paper application in English and paper application in Spanish is also available and can be submitted as an attachment by email to DHS.FCS.PEBT@nullillinois.gov. IDHS created a flyer to help families with the application process. A Spanish version of the flyer is also available.

Crisis Fund

The District 54 Education Foundation has also created a new fund called the D54 Foundation Crisis Fund, which will be used to support our most at-risk families, including the 20% of students who qualify for free lunch. This emergency fund will help families impacted by this virus, and could be used in the future to provide immediate access to financial assistance for financially struggling families.

To donate, visit any of the following websites:

Lugares de despensa de alimentos y oportunidades de donación

A medida que la situación en torno al nuevo coronavirus de 2019 continúa cambiando, el Distrito 54 está trabajando con increíbles socios de la comunidad para proporcionar alimentos a las familias que tienen dificultades financieras. Las familias que necesitan asistencia pueden beneficiarse de lo siguiente.

  • Miércoles:  Willow Creek Community Church llevará a cabo una distribución móvil de camiones de comida de 11 a.m. a mediodía cada miércoles en el estacionamiento del Centro de Administración Rafferty del Distrito 54, 524 E. Schaumburg Road en Schaumburg.
  • Jueves:  Distrito 211 de Township High School, cinco días de almuerzos, cinco días de desayuno y medio galón de leche de 9 am a mediodía cada jueves en la escuela secundaria Hoffman Estates, 1100 W. Higgins Road en Hoffman Estates. Esta es una camioneta drive-through. Cuando llegue a la escuela, quédese en su vehículo. Cargaremos las bolsas en su maletero o asiento trasero.
  • Viernes:  Willow Creek Community Church también llevará a cabo una distribución móvil de camiones de comida de 4 a 5 p.m. cada viernes en la escuela Keller, 820 Bode Road en Schaumburg.
  • Schaumburg Township – La despensa de alimentos del municipio de Schaumburg ahora está llevando a cabo una recolección de 1 a 3 p.m. los martes y jueves en la oficina del municipio,  One Illinois Blvd. en Hoffman Estates. Para obtener más información, llame al (847) 732-7166.

Nos gustaría agradecer a la cantidad de personas y organizaciones que han preguntado cómo hacer donaciones para ayudar a aquellos en nuestra comunidad que puedan estar luchando. Creemos que la mejor práctica es trabajar con organizaciones que actualmente ofrecen estos servicios en nuestra comunidad y, por lo tanto, no recolectarán alimentos. No traiga donaciones de alimentos a la oficina del distrito como se mencionó anteriormente.

La despensa de alimentos del municipio de Schaumburg y muchas organizaciones benéficas religiosas están proporcionando alimentos a las familias de nuestra comunidad. Haga clic aquí para acceder a una lista de estas despensas en el sitio web del municipio de Schaumburg. Para alentar el distanciamiento social, estas organizaciones no están recolectando alimentos en este momento.

Transferencia electrónica de beneficios pandémicos (P-EBT)

El Departamento de Servicios Humanos de Illinois tiene un nuevo beneficio especial llamado Transferencia electrónica de beneficios pandémicos para ayudar a las familias a comprar alimentos para niños que normalmente recibirían almuerzo gratis cuando las escuelas están en sesión. Para solicitar en línea, las familias deben visitar https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access y hacer clic en Solicitar beneficios.

Las familias que actualmente reciben beneficios del Programa de Asistencia Nutricional Suplementaria (SNAP) no necesitan solicitar los beneficios P-EBT. Estos beneficios adicionales de P-EBT se cargarán en las cuentas de Illinois LINK EBT junto con los beneficios regulares de SNAP. Las familias que actualmente no reciben beneficios de SNAP pero tienen niños que reciben almuerzo gratis, deberán presentar una solicitud en este sitio web. Una solicitud en papel en en español también están disponibles y se pueden enviar como archivo adjunto por correo electrónico a DHS.FCS.PEBT@nullillinois.gov. IDHS creó un volante para ayudar a las familias con el proceso de solicitud. U

Crisis Fund

La Fundación Educativa del Distrito 54 también ha creado un nuevo fondo llamado D54 Foundation Crisis Fund, que se utilizará para apoyar a nuestras familias más expuestas, incluido el 20% de los estudiantes que califican para el almuerzo gratuito. Este fondo de emergencia ayudará a las familias afectadas por este virus y podría usarse en el futuro para proporcionar acceso inmediato a asistencia financiera para familias con dificultades financieras.

  • Tonight all of the lights in the school will be left on overnight along with our sign in front of our school to acknowledge that we are honoring our 6th graders bright future.
  • All students received a JH feeder t-shirt to wear proudly this summer.
  • A video tribute was created by our staff. Please click the link to view.

You will be missed,

The Churchill Staff

Report Cards will be available online within the District 54 Parent Portal starting June 2nd. An email will be sent to you once your child’s report card is available.

In accordance with the Illinois State Board of Education guidelines, report card grades for the third trimester will be designated as Pass or Incomplete.

We hope that all families will check the report cards and use the information to celebrate with their children their academic successes. We are all very proud of our students.

If you know that you want to purchase a yearbook there are a few copies left. We have reopened the online store so that you can reserve your copy. Please go to balfour.com so that you can reserve your copy. At this point the only way to purchase your yearbook is through this site.

Please know that we at Churchill are very sorry about the inconvenience.

#ChurchillPride UPDATES – May 27, 2020

Good morning Churchill community,

I hope that you are enjoying the warm summer-like weather that we have been having. It is so nice to be able to go outside and enjoy time working in the yard and being active!

As we go into the summer I wanted to share some news with you. Carol Novak, our Assistant Principal, will be leaving us to assume the Assistant Principal role at Hoover Math and Science Academy. We will miss Mrs. Novak’s passion for helping our students, her positivity and her cheerful laugh. We wish Mrs. Novak well at her new school.

Please join me in welcoming our new Assistant Principal Christi Sosin. Mrs. Sosin has been a strong member of the District 54 community for 25 years. She has taught grades K-8 at Eisenhower and Lincoln Prairie schools, worked as a building literacy coach, district literacy instructional coach, and most recently was the assistant principal at Einstein Elementary School. We look forward to welcoming Mrs. Sosin to the Churchill community.

As a District we have decided to make some changes regarding student technology over the summer. This Friday we will only be collecting technology for students who are leaving School District 54. Our current second grade students will be keeping their iPads for the summer. The District will be scheduling a 2nd grade iPad collection / Chromebook exchange in early August. At the same time we will also be leaving student Google accounts active for the summer. Please remember that our District 54 iPads and Chromebooks are intended for instructional purposes only. Students should be monitored while using the devices to ensure that they are only accessing approved sites such as the instructional Apps which have been downloaded by the school. Families moving out of District 54 must turn in their devices this Friday between 8:30 and 11:30, as previously advertised.

Also, we will be celebrating our school year with a special end of the year virtual assembly with our students. Churchill teachers will be sending a link for the assembly video out to the students on Thursday. Please make sure that your child logs in for attendance, activities, and to enjoy our end of the year celebration!

Sincerely,

Steve Kern

#ChurchillPride – May 22, 2020

Good afternoon Churchill community,

It was so great to see our students and families stopping by Churchill to pick up their school supplies. Getting the chance to wave hello and talk to our children absolutely filled our hearts this week! Thank you to the many families that were able to arrange their day within our pickup schedule.

It is hard to believe but our school year is almost over. Next week is our last week of Virtual Learning. Please read all of this week’s email as there are many important announcements included.

Sincerely,

Steve Kern and Carol Novak

Returning school materials and Picking up student materials

Thank you again to all of the families that were able to come this week to pick up student supplies that were left at school. Please email me ASAP if you did not pick your child’s materials so that we can schedule a time for you to come to school by the end of next week. Please know that materials that are not picked up will be discarded at the end of the week.

Grades and Report Cards

Report Cards will be available online within the District 54 Parent Portal starting June 2nd. An email will be sent to you once your child’s report card is available.

In accordance with the Illinois State Board of Education guidelines, report card grades for the third trimester will be designated as Pass or Incomplete. Final year end grades for students in fourth through eighth grade will reflect second trimester grades or higher as evaluated by student work across the third trimester.

We hope that all families will check the report cards and use the information to celebrate with their children their academic successes. We are all very proud of our students.

Last Day of School and Technology Over the Summer

The last day of Virtual Learning will be Thursday, May 28th.

Please also note that the last day students will be able to use Chromebooks and access their Google accounts will be Friday, May 29th. Google Access will be shut off for all students at 11:59 PM on May 29th. It is important that students download to another computer if there are any files that they think they will need over the summer. Remember that Chromebooks and iPads for all grades, except 2nd, will be kept at home over the summer so that these devices can be used at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year. Our second grade students will be receiving a Chromebook at the beginning of the school year. Please find a safe place to store the District 54 issued device and charger for the summer, as these devices will not be able to be used.

2nd Grade iPads and Non-Returning D54 Electronic Devices

We will only be collecting iPads from current 2nd graders AND electronic devices (iPads and Chromebooks) from students who will NOT be returning to a District 54 school in the fall. We will collect these devices on Friday, May 29th.  Below is the schedule for the drop off of these specific electronics. All other students will hold on to their devices over the summer for the fall. Please email Mr. Kern ASAP if you need to schedule an alternate time to drop off this technology.

Churchill PTA Announcement – May 19, 2020

Dear Churchill community,

The end of the year is quickly coming upon us. Given that the year is not ending as it typically would, our PTA has put together an option for families who were looking to give teachers a gift, but were unsure with how to do so during our current situation.

Here is a message from our PTA.

Since we can’t be in the classroom for the end of the year, the PTA has set up a Gift Crowd link for our amazing teachers and staff.  Money that is donated will be compiled for each person and then the staff member will get to choose what gift cards they would like to claim.  If you would like to participate please add your contribution by Friday May 29th as money will be delivered at noon that day.

In order to recognize the amazing work everyone does with our kids, we have paired each classroom teacher with another staff member. We ask that you donate a small amount to the partner teacher as well as your classroom teacher.  That way, no one will be left out.  For example, $15 to the classroom teacher and $5 to paired person. Below you will find a chart with partner teachers, and each paired staff is listed next to the classroom teacher they are paired with.

Here is the link to make the donation

https://www.giftcrowd.com/#/event/cVdGDalctd

Have a great week!

For questions, please contact registrationdocuments@nullsd54.org. If you don’t know what school your child will attend, click here to access our School Search program and enter your address.

Current D54 families

Log in in to the parent portal, and update your information for next year by June 1, 2020. You must hit the SUBMIT button after reviewing the information, even if you don’t make any changes. If your children will not be attending District 54 schools next year, please contact your school office and let them know.

Information about transportation and the consumable materials fee will be communicated at a later time.

Refund of Fees to D54 Families

Due to the move to remote learning in March, District 54 will be prorating prepaid fees (i.e. milk, field trips, pizza fundraisers, etc.) based on actual goods or services received. The amounts that have been paid by families for goods or services that have not been received have been credited to their student’s account on the District 54 Portal. Each item credited is identified separately for tracking purposes.  The consumable materials fee will not be prorated, as this fee is used immediately for student workbooks and other consumables. 

For those that paid for transportation, that fee reimbursement is being handled separately from this process. In addition, payments made to the PTA are being handled by the school PTA.

If your child is an eighth-grade student, the credit has been applied to a sibling’s account. Checks will be mailed before May 22 to families whose youngest child is graduating from District 54 this spring and to families who are moving out of District 54.

If you are experiencing a financial hardship and need these fees refunded by check, or if you have any other questions, please contact your school secretary.

Churchill End of Year Materials Drop Off/ Pick Up

Good morning,

It is that time when we need to start planning for the end of the year wrap up. We know that the in-person portion of our school year ended abruptly, and students might not have taken everything home with them. We have developed a plan for families to safely pick up student belongings and to drop off any school/materials that need to be returned. This will take place during the week of May 18. In preparation, our teachers will gather students’ belongings that were left in the classroom into a large plastic bag and will label the bag with the child’s name and room number.

With almost 700 students in our school we have to develop a schedule to quickly and efficiently return student materials to families. For the safety of our staff it is also critical that our schedule limits the number of teachers in the building at the same time. During the drop off / pick up process all staff members will be wearing masks, gloves, and practicing social distancing.

Given that we will have a limited number of staff members at school during this process, families with children in different grade levels will have to make multiple trips to pick up their child’s materials at their assigned time. We understand that this is an inconvenience, however once again we are trying to quickly and safely return student materials to 700 students. At the end of the email you will find that we have set up a staggered schedule for families to come to school.  Each classroom has been scheduled for a specific day and 30 minute time slot.

We are asking parents to put any library books, guided reading books, or school issued textbooks in a plastic bag labeled with your child’s name and room number or teacher. Please place these items into your trunk before you drive to school. Do not return Chromebooks or iPads at this time.

During your assigned drop off time please do the following:

  • To help keep the line moving, we are asking each car to display the name and room number of the student on an 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper.
  • On the assigned date / time parents will pull up to the front of the school in the bus lane. Please maintain one lane so that as you arrive at the front door you will be able to quickly receive your materials.
  • Once you get to the front of the building parents will pop open the trunk, and a staff member will place your student’s bag of belongings in the trunk of the car. At the same time the staff member will remove any school materials that you have to return by taking them out of the trunk.
  • Parents and students will stay in their cars the entire time. 
  • Once you have received your child’s materials you will be able to exit the driveway turning left or right.

ON MAY 29th, we will collect IPads from 2nd grade students, as well as iPads and Chromebooks from any student who will no longer attend a District 54 school in the fall.

  • Students in kindergarten and 1st grade will keep their district issued iPads over the summer, which will be used in the fall.
  • Students in 2nd grade will need to return their iPad to Churchill on May 29th. A drop off schedule will be emailed to you as we get closer to that date.
  • Students in 3rd-6th grade will keep their district issued Chromebooks which will be used in the fall.
  • Any students who will be moving and not be returning to a District 54 school in the fall will need to return their device to Churchill on May 29th. A drop off schedule will follow.
  • A schedule will be emailed out as we get closer to the 29th.

The schedule for the week of May 18th pick up/ drop off is below. On the day that the grade level has their pick up/drop off there will be no new VLearning assignments for that day. Teachers will be assisting at school with the drop off / pickup process, therefore teachers will not be online to answer questions or give feedback. However, enrichment activities will be pushed out to our students that day.

  • Tuesday, May 19 | Sixth Grade and Kindergarten

NEW – Churchill Online Reading Resources

During these unique times many families are having trouble finding access to reading materials.  School District 54 has created an Online Reading Resource Page.  On this site you will find Churchill’s eBooks (only available for students in grades 3-6), Public Library collections, online encyclopedias, and virtual field trips.  As always, items on the web are ever changing so please let us know if something is no longer available.  We encourage you to browse these resources as a family.  Please contact Julie Tomchuk, our Learning Resource Teacher, with any questions or concerns at JulieTomchuk@nullsd54.org.   Happy reading!
