December Words for the Wise

The 12 Days Before Winter Break!

Thank You for Using the Attendance Line!

Thank you to everyone for remembering to call in your student when they are going to be out sick or arriving late.


As a reminder you may call the attendance line at 630/428-6030 twenty-four hours a day to leave a message. If you notify your student’s teacher regarding your student’s absence we still need you to call the attendance line. When doing so, provide the spelling of your student’s first and last name, grade and teacher name, and reason for their absence. Also, if your student has a fever of 100 or greater they should not come to school. They may not return to school for 24 hours of being fever free without medicine.

Students in the Spotlight for Earning Positive Referrals!

Congratulations to the following Owl-Standing Owen Owls for earning a Positive Referral since our last newsletter for demonstrating exceptional character. Any staff member may acknowledge a student who exemplifies great character on a regular basis. We encourage you to celebrate this with your child. We recognize each student during morning announcements. They sign our Positive Referral Book that is displayed in the main foyer, choose a personal Owl-Standing Owl of Character on our Kids for Character Tree in the main hallway and wear a Star Student badge or crown for the day.


Students who earn at least two Positive Referrals and have no Office Referrals during second quarter earn pizza lunch with the principal. Any student earning at least four Positive Referrals and have no Office Referrals participate in a limo lunch to Commissioner's park for a picnic and play with the principal.


Please join me in recognizing and congratulating the following students:
