Lincoln Prairie Weekly Update September 28

Good afternoon,

We hope you are excited to welcome in the fall season this weekend! To mark the entrance of a new season, we have another challenge – Fall INSPIREd. As a family, create a list of what inspires you about the season and post it somewhere visible to collect inspirations throughout the season. Creating space for acknowledging what inspires us helps us to find inspiration on a more regular basis! What is first to make your list?

Lincoln Prairie Clubs

In an effort to support conversations at home, we have compiled a Club Brochure posted on our website to review as a family.  The brochure can be accessed by clicking here. You will find all clubs offered this year, as well as contact information for sponsors and times of year offered. The process is still the same as in previous years and we encourage our children to gather the permission slips and only join clubs they are interested in.  Please know that students will receive announcements daily about when different clubs will begin. Permission slips will be made available on the bulletin board outside the main office.

Measures of Academic Progress Reports

On Thursday, October 4, you will receive an email containing your child’s most recent Measures of Academic Progress testing results. Please be sure to review this prior to attending your child’s conference. Our staff is looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s academic and social emotional progress thus far.

District Information

Anti-Bullying Presentation for Parents – October 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.
