Good morning,

We are well into the day and the sun is shining . . .hopefully that means we will have a wonderful afternoon and weekend!

Please take time to read through this week’s LP Press April 24 2015.  You’ll want to pay special attention to our Volunteer Appreciation event taking place during next Friday’s May Whole School Meeting. Whether you volunteer through PTSA, help in the classroom, chaperone a field trip or are helping your child at home, you have partnered with school and should be honored! We hope you can make it next Friday at 1:15pm.

Have a wonderful weekend!

We hope everyone is planning on enjoying the sunshine later this afternoon or throughout the weekend! It definitely will be a good break from the hectic week.

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone is ready for what looks like a better day today. Between the rain and crazy temperatures, I was looking forward to some sunshine today!

Please read through this week’s LP Press April 10 2015 for important information.

Don’t forget about our April Whole School Meeting today at 1:15pm, followed by our Celebrate Reading and Writing event. Our classrooms will be open to visit as students participate in authentic reading and writing experiences from 2:00-3:00pm.

Lastly, Thank you to everyone who donated their time to read to our students this week. Classrooms were a buzz all week with the excitement of their guest readers. Taking time out of your schedules to enjoy the school day with your children is something they will not forget. If this week didn’t work into your schedule, feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher and schedule something for later this year.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It was so nice to have students back at school this week. Although the week break is always a nice time to slow down and relax, it felt good to get back in to a schedule this week.

Please read through this week’s LP Press April 2 2015. Not only are there a number of important PTSA and district announcements, we have a number of dates you’ll want to make sure you get on the calendar.

We are trying something new next week. To culminate our Read Across America week of events ( check out the LP Press for events each day,) we will be hosting our Celebrate Reading and Writing event during the school day immediately following the April Whole School Meeting next Friday, April 10th. Classrooms will host parents and provide an opportunity to engage in what’s happening in the classroom.

We hope you enjoy the weekend and look forward to seeing you next Friday!

Lost and Found

Please look at the pictures attached. We have a lot of items in our Lost and Found Collection that’s located on the tables outside the office door (by the recycling drop-off area).  We have many sweatshirts, jackets, lunch bags, hats and gloves that want to go home.  All unclaimed items will be donated to the District 54 Community Closet on Friday, March 20th, so please stop by and check soon!

Locker Decorations

There are to be no decorations on the outside of lockers. This includes birthday decorations, drawings and pictures. The tape/sticky tac, etc that is used wears on the painted handprints and we’d like to make every effort we can to preserve them.

Happy Reading! LP Press March 6 2015

Next Week

We begin our state testing in grades 3rd-8th grades next week. Just like with ISAT, PARCC testing will take place throughout the March 9th-March 20th testing window. 3rd-5th grades will test the first week and Middle level will test on specific days during both weeks. At school we work hard to ensure as much normalcy takes place during the week, while also acknowledging that a break in some of the expectations of homework and such may be necessary. This should not be a stressful time for our children. Making sure they get enough sleep and have a filling breakfast will help a great deal. Thank you in advance for ensuring that all students get to school on time and for not scheduling any unnecessary appointments during this time.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Good afternoon,

We hope everyone enjoyed the week and is looking forward to the weekend.

Thank you to everyone who has completed the 5 Essentials survey. Twenty percent of the parent community has completed the survey already. We are hoping to have even more of you complete it. Next week during the March WSM we will have laptops set up for your convenience after the meeting. To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/.

Please check out this week’s LP Press February 27 2015 for upcoming information and dates.

Have a nice weekend!

Good morning,

It was nice to see students back today! It is awfully quiet at school without them!

Please read through this week’s LP Press February 20 2015

If you still have yet to take the 5Essentials Survey, the window is open until March 13th.  To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ . If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. Last year, when the number was 30 percent, none of our schools met this target. We are hoping to meet the target this year.  Currently, only 12% of our parents have completed the survey.Thank you to all our families that have already completed the survey! We do use the information as a reflection tool as we process what we do and why we do it!

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment window is from March 9th – 20th for all 3rd-8th grade students.  It is essential that students are present at school during this time.  Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments or vacations.  Classroom teachers will notify you of your child’s specific testing dates.

We are looking forward to Dad n Me Night tonight. Hope to see you there!
