A Message from Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin 2/23/18

Our focus at Einstein is not only academic, but includes working with our students to make good choices.  Each week, we universally address certain topics in our classrooms.  These topics can range from having a growth mindset to what it means to pay it forward.  This week our focus was on, “choosing friends that encourage us,” as we discussed what it means to be respectful. This included what it looks like and sounds like when we show respect to others.  We never want to miss opportunities throughout our school day to have conversations focused on topics that will not only help our students grow academically, but will set them up for success in social situations, ultimately providing them with the tools they need to positively contribute to the kindness and compassion we encourage in our community.

A Message from Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin 2/15/18

We are so proud of our Einstein Owls and the ways that they have embraced a growth mindset this year!   The definition of persevere is, “to persist in anything undertaken and to maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty or obstacles”.  That is exactly what our students are doing when they view their obstacles as opportunities.   Thank you for sharing in our student-led conferences this week where your children had the opportunity to discuss the goals they have already reached and what they continue to strive for.

Thank you for an amazing week with your children.  We have said it before, but we can’t say it enough… we believe that it takes a village to raise a child and we are lucky enough to have the privilege of seeing your children learn and grow each day.  Wednesday marked 100 days of school for our 1st-6th graders and as we reflect on all that we’ve experienced August, we want to express our gratitude to you for the partnership we share.

A Message from Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin 1/26/18

It is hard to believe that it is already the end of January!  We are looking forward to seeing you at our student-led conferences in February, where our students can share their progress toward their goals. Conference and report card times are not the only times we reflect on our successes.  Our students utilize data folders each day as they travel to their acceleration classes.  This allows teachers to be able to monitor progress, give specific feedback, and allow for the best possible instruction based on our students’ ever-changing needs.  It is great to hear both teachers and students celebrate students’ successes.  A conference time reminder will be coming home soon!

Einstein gives a hoot about our community! Please join us in the spirit of giving to our food pantry as well as Spirit Week.  Monday will be crazy hair day and bring in a toiletry item.  Please see the attached to see the remainder of the week!

Just a few reminders for tomorrow:

There will be no after school clubs tomorrow, including TAP.  We will also be selling pizza tomorrow for $2.00 a slice.  There is also no school on Friday, December 22nd.

Today we had a hard lockdown drill, which was led by the Hanover Park Police Department. They were more than impressed with how our students and staff responded to a possible crisis.

We want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a wonderful winter break, filled with time spent with family and friends. We look forward to the New Year!
