Dear Einstein Community,
We have gotten off to a great start to the new year. We want to thank all of our parents for helping your children transition from a summer routine to getting back to school. We hope your child has shared some great things that happened this first week of school. We started our first day with “Living Above the Line” lessons. Students were taught about what it means to live above the line and be on the Ownership Team having Power, Choice, and Freedom. The following day we held our annual Boot Camp and reviewed what the 3Bs look like in all the settings at Einstein and even on the bus. We are very excited about the upcoming year!
Schaumburg Parent University District 54 is excited to once again offer our families the Schaumburg Parent University (SPU). The Parent University 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. We offer two types of classes – Practical Parenting for adults only and Time Together, where families learn and play together. Most classes are free and childcare is provided.
This year we have already scheduled parenting classes about Erin’s Law on Sept. 30 and internet safety on Oct. 7, as well as Time Together STEM projects on Sept. 16 and art projects on Oct. 22. Before we plan the rest of the classes for this school year, we would like to hear from you. What classes would you be interested in taking? How would you prefer to learn about SPU? Please take this quick survey (7 questions) by clicking here so that the Schaumburg Parent University can meet the needs of our community.

First day of School for Kindergarten Students – September 2nd
Our AM Kindergarten students will be greeted by their classroom teacher outside and line up near the main entrance (Door 1) between 8:25 AM and 8:35 AM, and will be dismissed at 11:10 AM out door #15.
Our PM Kindergarten students will be greeted by their classroom teacher outside and line up near the main entrance (Door 1) between 12:20 PM and 12:25 PM, and will be dismissed at 3:00 PM from the kindergarten classroom door (just north of the Door 1).
Lining up outside will provide you the opportunity to see you child’s teacher, snap a photo and wish them a great day. Only students will enter the building with their teacher.
Run to Read
The annual School District 54 Run to Read will be hosted by Dirksen School on Sunday, September 28th. All profits from this event are used to purchase books for classroom libraries in District 54. It would be great to see some of our Einstein families out there that morning! I know some Einstein staff members and myself will be running. Join us!
