Celebrate Reading and Writing Night
Thank you to the many families who came to Celebrate Reading and Writing Night last week. It is always one of our most well attended events. Thank you to: Mr. Whitney for organizing the art show, Miss Vargas and Ms. Ceballos for having some of the orchestra students perform, the PTA for sponsoring the book fair and the Lake Zurich National Honor Society students/Mrs. Nicoletti for donating books so all families could take a free book home.
Most importantly, we want to thank the students for the outstanding writing they produced for their books and for other pieces of writing that were shared. We are so proud of them. Thank you Einstein families for supporting your students and coming out to this event.
PARCC testing started today for students in grades 3-6. We are confident the students are very prepared and will do an excellent job. Thank you for getting your students here on time and making sure they eat breakfast. We want to thank the PTA for providing snacks for the students during testing. (You should have gotten a permission slip for snacks. You can still send it in if you have not done so)
Schaumburg Parent University – April Classes
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. There are three upcoming evening programs.
- Using Technology to Support Student Learning: District 54 instructional coaches Hobbs Behrouzi and Becky Meyer will discuss how our teachers are integrating technology into the curriculum to support students, foster collaboration and differentiate learning. This discussion for adults only will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 14 in the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg. Childcare is available.
- The Truth About Nutrition: Registered Dietician Samantha Woulfe will explore common facts and myths about nutrition in an interactive workshop for children in third through eighth grade and their parents.

Field Day Volunteers Needed
Attached below is a volunteer form to help out at Field Day on Wednesday, May 25th. Many volunteers are needed for this fun event. Mr. Steffan appreciates all who can help on this day.
2016 Field Day Parent Letter.doc
A letter was sent home Friday with students in grades kindergarten through 5th asking for your input into class placements for next year. I’ve attached an electronic copy below. This is totally optional/not required.
School Start Time
We just want to remind you that students are not let in the building until 8:25 in the morning. Since there is no supervision until that time, no one is outside to monitor playground activity, etc. Please help us out and not send your child(ren) too early to school so we can ensure their safety. We have students arriving as early as 8:00. Thank you in advance.
