A message from Ms. Kanoon

Posted June 2nd, 2016 by Mr. Burback

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful four years I have had as the principal of Einstein School. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with the amazing students, staff and parents of this community. I am so proud of the academic achievements during the four years I have been here. This is due to the hard work of our students with the help of the extraordinary teachers/staff, as well as the support we get from you, our parents/guardians.

I want to extend a thank you to the Einstein staff and students. They surprised me yesterday with an assembly in honor of my retirement. It was touching beyond words. All classes recorded video messages which were both hilarious and touching. They had good wishes as well as suggestions for what I could do in retirement. The Einstein students’ creativity shined through! It was concluded with every class sending a representative up with a rose and cards from the class. Needless to say, it was a touching moment for me that I will never forget.

I wish you all much happiness and success in the future. I will never forget my years at Einstein. There truly is, “no place I’d rather be”, as I finish my career in District 54.

A Fond Farewell to Staff

We are sadly saying good-bye to a number of great staff members who are off to other endeavors. They have all touched many lives at Einstein.  We wish you the very best!

Mrs. Regina Schneider, Mrs. Abena Sasu, Mrs. Rachel Pazderski, Mrs. Debbie Migut, Mrs. Amy Vernagallo, Mrs. Karen Stahlke, Mrs. Lebia Jackson, Miss Vicky Vargas, Mr. Chris Samp, and Mrs. Karen Culp.

Field Day

Students were thrilled by the bike tricks of Matt Whilhelm. He has been featured on America’s Got Talent and has competed in the X-Games. He also was featured on the Cartoon Network with President Obama recently. Besides showing us his amazing bike tricks/skills, he had a message of always working hard and doing your best, as well as an anti-bullying message. This program was made possible by funds from the wonderful Einstein PTA. We want to thank them for their continued support.
