Halloween Reminders

Dear Einstein Families,

On October 31st, we will be celebrating Halloween with a costume parade beginning at 2:00 p.m.

If the weather permits, we will hold our costume parade outdoors. Cones will be set up around the building. Family members will stand outside the cones to take pictures, while the students parade closest to the building. Students will exit door 13 and proceed around the perimeter of the building and enter back in door 14. If the weather is inclement, then all grade levels will parade through the gym.

In choosing an appropriate costume for your child to wear at school, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • No fake blood, gore, scary costumes or costumes depicting violence
  • No weapons or “look-alikes” of any kind (squirt guns, chains, whips, plastic swords, etc.)
  • Ensure that costumes are appropriate and inoffensive to all ages at our school
  • Keep make-up to a minimum (there is only a short time given to students to change into costume)
  • No one may wear make-up or costumes to school in the morning
  • Be certain that your child can see through any mask or head covering
  • Please do not send in any edible treats with your child to share. Any food or drink sent to school will be sent back home with the student.

Sincerely,

Julie Tarasiuk-Principal                     Christi Sosin-Assistant Principal

A Message From Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin – October 25th

Dear Einstein Community,

Veterans’ Day
In honor of Veterans’ Day, Einstein School will be creating a bulletin board in the main hallway to celebrate current and past members of the military. Veterans’ Day is Monday, November 11th.

If you have a relative who has served, please send in a scanned photograph with the following information: name, branch they serve/served in, date of service and the relationship to which student(s) at Einstein. If you don’t have a scanned photograph, please bring the photo in and we can scan it and return the original photo right away. We need to have all photographs no later than November 1st.

The pictures will be displayed on the bulletin board until Winter Break, at which time they will be returned back to you through your child.

Thank you in advance for helping us honor our past and present service members. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Please send your pictures and information to michellemeyers@nullsd54.org

In addition to honoring our Veterans through displaying their photos, we are also collecting leftover Halloween candy to send over to our troops. So if you have collected too much candy, we are happy to take it! We will be shipping the candy on November 6th, therefore that will be the last day we will be collecting. Students will be working on writing letters of gratitude to send along with our candy.

American Education Week
American Education Week begins on November 11th. We would like to invite you to sit along-side your child(ren) on November 11th. This is a fantastic opportunity to share in the school experience with your children. We are inviting parents to join us from 8:45-9:45. We will be breaking the hour into 2 sessions, therefore if you have more than one child, you can share this experience with all of your children. You may experience a gym class, shared reading, or even a science experiment! We look forward to having you!

Universal Screener
As a school, we strive to meet the needs of the whole child, including the social-emotional needs of every student.  Our teachers know your child by name and by need and we work hard to build relationships and understand all of our learners.  To better ensure we support every student, this year we will again be using a universal screener to help us ensure we have identified every student who may need additional social-emotional support.

The universal screener is a series of questions that staff members complete for the students they support. Students do not participate in the screener or receive direct feedback about the results. If your child has elevated risk factors identified through this screener, we would contact you directly to discuss how we can work together to intervene and support your student.  This is simply one additional way for our staff to make sure we are helping every student be successful.  If you have any questions about the screener, please feel free to contact us.

News from the Nurse
This is a reminder to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits.  While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.

Thank you to everyone in the Einstein community that attended our Muffins with Moms event! These smiles say it all!

A Message From Mrs. Tarasiuk and Mrs. Sosin – September 27th

Dear Einstein Community,

This morning at Einstein, we practiced a Hard Lockdown Drill under the guidance of the Hanover Park Police Department. We hold at least two lockdown drills each year so that students and staff are familiar with the best practices should there ever be a crisis situation in the school. Today’s drill was an unannounced drill so that we could test our systems and evaluate how we respond.  Although the drill was a surprise, it was announced that it was a drill so the students were not frightened.

After each drill, we reflect as a staff and with local emergency responders to determine if there are any procedures we might need to review with the staff and students. The police said they were impressed with how well our students and staff did during the drill.

We obviously hope never to need to use these procedures, but it helps all involved to know that they have the skills needed to respond if an emergency should arise.

The safety of your children is very important to our staff. Should you have any questions about this drill, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Student-Led Conferences
On Thursday, October 10 and Friday, October 11 we will be having student-led conferences. Students will be sharing their goals and progress with their families.

Hopefully some of our lost items can find a home!

Einstein Updates

Dear Einstein community,

We could not have asked for a better start to our school year.  In planning this week, we asked ourselves, “What will we do today, that will keep our students running back to us tomorrow?”  Our staff is committed to providing the best education, care and support to all of your children.  Thank you for sending us the best part of you each day and partnering with us for yet another fantastic school year here at Einstein.

Fall Picture Day
Mark your calendar for our Fall Picture Day on Tuesday, September 10th.  Order forms will be sent home.

Fees Reminder
You can pay your students fees through your parent portal account.  This includes your $50 consumable fee, optional instructional device insurance (grades 3-8 only), and milk.  If you believe your student will qualify for the Free Lunch Program and therefore will qualify for a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee at this time. Applications for the Free Lunch Program are available online and in the school office.  The consumable fee will increase by $15 if payment is not received by November 15th, $25 if not received by February 1st, and $35 if not received by April 1st.  If you would like to purchase instructional device insurance but do not have the option to do so through your portal, please contact our school office for assistance.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
Students may enter through the front doors of the school starting at 8:25am. There is no adult supervision before this time, so students should not be dropped off earlier than 8:25am. If the plans for your child’s transportation needs to be altered at any time, parents must contact the office directly. For example, if a child takes the bus, he/she will be expected to take the bus unless we receive a phone call to the office stating otherwise.  We want to ensure the safety of all our Einstein students!

Welcome to Einstein Kindergarteners!

Kinder bussers will be escorted daily onto their busses by our Einstein Patrols.
Kinders who are walkers and car riders will exit Door 13.

MAP Testing
We will begin MAP testing on Monday, August 26th.  The information we gain from this assessment is extremely valuable to us.  We use this information to determine the strengths of our students as well as the areas we need to focus on for the year.

Our students did a great job! We will continue to practice our drills in the upcoming weeks.
