Lincoln Prairie Friday Update October 25
We hope this email finds you enjoying a beautiful morning! We are looking forward to our Halloween festivities tonight for Middle Level and next week for K-5 students. This is such a fun time to be a kid (or around kids)! We look forward to seeing many of you parents too!
From The Nurse’s Office
This is a reminder to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits. While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.
Lifetouch Photo Orders
It has come to our attention that some families did not receive the photos they purchased from Lifetouch. We spoke with Lifetouch and there was a glitch in their system; therefore, they are re-processing all student orders placed on September 17. Once we receive the photos, we will send them home with your child.
As a reminder, picture retakes will take place this Tuesday, October 29.

Schaumburg School District 54
Schaumburg Parent University – November classes
Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are two evening programs scheduled for November. Please note that child care is always available.
Steps to Changing a Child’s Behavior – November 11
Greta Nielsen, LCPC, NCC, Clinical Director and Psychotherapist at Clinical Care Consultants, will share tips, techniques and tools to build parenting skills and positive relationships with your children. Learn ways to encourage and empower your child to independently problem-solve and feel good about themselves. Minimize power struggles and tantrums, while improving communication. You will walk away with strategies for encouraging positive behaviors and stopping the negative ones by developing both natural and logical consequences. Be the effective parent you want to be by bringing calm, joy and respect to your home. This class will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11 at the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg (enter through Door C1). Adults only.

ABCs of Family Fitness – November 21
Most of us think about ABCs in terms of reading and writing. This class, guided by Melt Pilates and Yoga owner, personal trainer and yoga instructor Shannon Tampa, will focus on Abs, Biceps and Core. Support your child’s social emotional success by ensuring they stay healthy, challenged and engaged during this quality family time! This class will take place from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 at the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg (enter through Door C1).
