Dear Einstein Community,
We had another great week at Einstein. We hope to see many of you tonight at the PTA Family Game Night from 6:30-7:30. Stay warm this weekend. It looks like the winter weather is here.
Du Page Children’s Museum Science Night
We hope you can join us on November 24th for the second Science Night provided by the Du Page Children’s Museum. They were here two years ago for a math and science night. It is a hands-on family activity night for students in grades 4-6. There will be a variety of science related experiments and activities. All materials will be provided by the museum. We want to thank Ms. Astrug for obtaining a District 54 Foundation Mini Grant to fund this great event. There is no charge for this event. Please click here for more information.
Save the Date-There will be a math night sponsored by the Children’s Museum in February for grades K-3. Details will be given as the date gets closer.
We hope you have noticed the new landscape out in front of Einstein. It has cleaned up the front and made it look beautiful. We look forward to spring when everything blooms.
We want to thank Roots and Shoots for keeping the landscaping weed-free. They have done a fantastic job of weeding the front and keeping it looking so nice.
Lastly, we want to thank Ms. Daubach for donating the planters you’ll see in our front entrance and upstairs in the hallway. Thank you to Mrs. Kern for doing all the planting. Thanks to them both for their time, donations, and for helping to make Einstein’s hallways cheerful.
Updated Report Cards
This year District 54 is implementing a new standards-based report card for all students Early Childhood through eighth grade. The new standards-based report card provides valuable information for you and your child including:
• Student proficiency of the Essential Learning Outcomes
• Overall academic achievement in each content area
• Social and emotional development
• Student specific comments from classroom teacher(s)
- Both an achievement grade for each content area and a standards mastery grade
The cover page of the new report card that will be mailed home on Nov. 25th, contains an explanation of the grading system and outlines what factors are taken into account when determining student proficiency.
Please remember that the District 54 Virtual Backpack contains a lot of information and activities available to students and families from various agencies and clubs in the area. Check it out on the District webpage!
Sixth Grade Parents
Today your students had the opportunity to meet with the Mr. Szwed, the assistant principal of Addams junior high. During that meeting the policies and procedures along with what a typical day is like at the junior high was reviewed. Soon your child will bring home a student request form that will allow them to select their electives for their 7th grade year. Parents will receive more information regarding this form at the 6th grade Parent Night which takes place on Dec. 3rd from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at your prospective junior high.
