A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 03/20/2022

Dear Central Road Families,

This week felt like spring and we hope the nicer weather and extra day light continues to brighten us! Our students enjoyed our comfort dogs visiting classrooms last week Monday, March 14th. Our furry friends were well received by all! We hope everyone has a restful and fun spring break. The time off is much deserved and we will be excited to welcome back our students and staff on Monday, March 28th. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our Central Road community! We truly appreciate it.

Kindest Regards,

Joanna Shostachuk

Protected Health Space Phone Number is 847-963-5114


As we enter the 2nd half of the school year, I invite you to take notice of the things you see your child's teacher do, hear your child's teacher say, or the things you hear your child gush with excitement about related to their teacher. We've included this simple form for you to submit should you feel so inclined to do so. Children in full day school spend more of their waking day with their teacher than they do with their parents. We thank you for entrusting your child with us! This has been a good school year and your kind words mean more than you know!

Thank A Teacher Link
