Thank you to the families who sent in notes of encouragement and emails for the North teachers; it was a great way to start the hybrid learning week! Individual notes went directly to the teachers, and the rest were included on a large poster board; there is a picture on the PTO website.


Also, a BIG shout out to thank Sue Evers for helping with Conference Day and Halloween treat bags for the North staff!

LRC - LIFT YOUR MOOD WITH A GREAT BOOK!

“Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked…until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.


Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.


With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine—Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.” GoodReads.Com

ComEd Support

ComEd understands that some families may be experiencing financial hardship as a result of the ongoing pandemic. That is why they are taking the time to let you know of the bill assistance options available to help those struggling with past-due balances.


If you could benefit from additional support, please call us immediately at 1-800-EDISON1 (1-800-334-7661), M-F, 7am-7pm. Our customers can also visit ComEd.com/Support to learn more about the following payment assistance options and eligibility requirements:


• CARE Customer Hardship Grants. Residential customers facing financial hardship may be eligible to receive one-time CARE grants from ComEd to help them get back on their feet.


• COVID-19 Financial Bill Assistance. A one-time bill assistance credit of up to $500 is available this year for eligible, low-income households.


• Flexible, Extended Payment Arrangements. For a limited time, low-income households and

residential customers expressing financial hardship may be eligible for a flexible payment

arrangement so they can spread balances over 24 payments, with 0% down. Residential customers who may not be facing financial hardship, but would like to spread balances, may be able to do so over 18 payments, with no more than 25% down.


• Waiver of New Deposits and Fee Relief. ComEd is waiving any new deposit requirements for a limited time for customers expressing financial hardship and extending relief from various fees (such as reconnection fees) to help low-income residential customers.


• State and Federal Financial Energy Assistance. Illinois’ Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) and the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) also provide valuable financial help to households that may be facing financial challenges.
