Dear Einstein Community,

We finished our second week of MAP testing and all the students have tried their best and done well. Thank you for the continued support you give at home. Next week is the last week for MAP testing and used for make-ups/absences. We had a great week here at school.  The students are working hard in their classrooms and demonstrating great behavior!  Thank you for continuing to work hard to get your children to school on time.  With instruction starting immediately this is very important.

From the PTA

The PTA would like to thank all the parents that volunteered to be room parents this school year.  Some rooms had several parents that volunteered which is greatly appreciated however we could only pick 1 parent.  An email will be going out to the room parents this weekend.

We look forward to having another great school year!

Have a great weekend,

Reshma Penzien and Kim Morrissey

Dear Einstein Community,

I hope you and your families enjoyed what turned out to be a beautiful weekend. We had another great week at Einstein. Students are getting into routines and working hard already. MAP testing begins tomorrow. We know our parents are good about having the students get a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast during testing. We know Einstein students always do their best.

PE and Art Enrichment

We are excited to announce that Einstein school again will be offering PE and Art Enrichment. However, this year the Enrichment offerings for will be held during lunch. We are very excited about this since we know many more students will have the opportunity to participate since they do not have to worry about transportation home. Mr. Steffan and Mr. Whitney had their first sign up last Friday. There is a large amount of students who are interested. Like last year, they will be doing a lottery to choose the students who will participate. Hopefully as the year goes on, everyone will get a chance to participate.

Pizza Friday Reminders

Just a reminder that we have pizza every Friday. It costs $2.00 per slice. Please send money in the morning with your child(ren). We place the order by 9:00 AM and want to guarantee that all students who want to buy pizza will get it. Last Friday we only had one slice left, so please help us out by sending the money in the morning. If by chance your child forgets, please get it to the office before 9:00 AM. Thank you in advance for your help.

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.
