Message from Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin 9/28/18
Our first round of student-led conferences on Thursday, October 4 and Friday, October 5. Since our conferences are student-led, we ask that students attend so they can share with parents their progress so far this year, as well as goals they have set for the remainder of the 2018-2019. Teachers will also be sharing their insights and establishing areas of focus in which we can partner with you. Please remember that our school day schedule is adjusted to accommodate these conferences. Thursday, October 4 will be a half-day of school with a dismissal time of 11:40. Also, there is no school on Friday, October 5. We look forward to seeing our Einstein families.
On Thursday morning, October 4th a file will be sent to each parents email containing the fall MAP report for your child. Your child’s teacher is looking forward to discussing student progress across all areas including academics and social emotional success during conferences.
From Mrs. Kern and Mrs. DeGraw in the Library:
Please join us on Thursday, October 4th from 12:00-7:30 PM for the Einstein Elementary Fall Book Fair. This event will be held in the gym during our parent teacher conference time. Come and pick some great books to add to your family library. A note with information will be coming home with all children this Friday. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Anti-Bullying Presentation for Parents – Oct. 9
- As you know, District 54 is committed to ensuring the academic success and social-emotional well-being of all students. This fall we introduced a new social-emotional learning curriculum at all grade levels focused on the belief that each child deserves to be Healthy, Safe, Engaged, Supported and Challenged.
- We value our relationships with our students’ parents as we work together to support the children in this community. Therefore, District 54 will host a presentation for parents and other adults in our community about the negative effects of bullying and what we can do as a community to create a culture of kindness and respect.
- Humanity Rising is partnering with Kirk Smalley of Stand for the Silent to deliver this powerful message in October, National Bullying Prevention Month. Mr. Smalley will talk about how his own son committed suicide after being bullied.
- The presentation will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at our Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg. Click here to access the flyer for the event.
- We hope you will make plans to join us. And please reach out to us if there is ever anything we can do to better support your child.
