Dear Einstein Community,
Happy Friday! We made it through our first full week in what seems like quite a while. I want to complement our students for being so flexible and for following the 3Bs this week. They have been indoors for most of the week at recess due to weather and they’ve done a great job! Please read below for important events and information.
We look forward to seeing you at Einstein’s Fun Fair next Friday. Please remember students must be accompanied by an adult for this event.
Schaumburg Parent University – March Class
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. We will host one evening program for parents in March: School Related Anxiety at 5:30 p.m. March 12 at the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg.
District 54 social worker Tricia Johnson will assist parents in understanding the difference between common stress and anxiety disorders and will provide helpful strategies to help children manage stress.
If you are interested in attending this event, please see the attached flyer. Childcare will be available. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit our website at http://sd54.org/spu.
Fun Fair Help Needed-From PTA
Einstein’s annual Fun Fair is coming up very quickly next Friday, March 6th. This is PTA’s biggest family event of the year and it takes over 60 volunteers to make it happen. If we do not have enough volunteers, we can’t keep all of the games running and the kids will miss out. Please consider volunteering for a shift to help make this a great time for our students. You can volunteer; click here for the volunteer form and return it to the school office by Wednesday, March 4th or by emailing Lisa Poland at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t do this without your support!
First Shift 6:00 – 7:15 pm
Second Shift 7:15-8:00 pm
Clean Up 8:00 – 8:30 pm
Summer STEM Opportunity:
What did you do on your summer vacation? Your answer could be: “I built and programed a robot, learned the principles of flight through rocket construction, or used a 3-D printer to design my own car or jewelry.” With the goal of bringing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) alive through authentic hands-on activities, District 54’s Summer STEM Academy creates experiences that expands on the interests of students.

A range of fun camps for a variety of interests for students in 1st through 8th grade
- Courses with hands-on, project-based curricula
