Map Reports

1st-8th grade families, Fall MAP reports have been uploaded to Skyward. To see your child's MAP scores log into Skyward and click on the Portfolio Tab, look for the file titled Map Results-Fall 2020. If you have any questions regarding the scores, please contact Dr. Kriewaldt or Mrs. Kalina. If you need help with Skyward, please contact Donna Runte.

School Fees

If you have not paid your school fees please do so as soon as possible.


We now have the ability for parents to pay for school fees, lunches/milk, and daycare online.

Your school fees have been “billed to your account”. To pay, log into Skyward, click on the Fee Management tab, you will see the school fees listed, click on Make a Payment (if you have more than one child, you can do this with any of them), this will take you to another site where you will see your Food Service balance as well as the required fees due. Click Add to Cart, do this for each of the fees if you have more than one child. You will also see Optional Fees, this is where you would select Athletic/Activities Fees. We are not collecting athletic/activity fees at this time, so only 4K Milk is listed (for 4K snack milk). Once you have everything added to your cart, you can Checkout. Please note, there is a service fee for using this service.


If you would like to send in a check for your fees, please download and complete the form, print it, and send it to the front office. We have copies available if you are not able to print.

Fee Payment Form


School fees were due by Wednesday, Sept. 30th.

Parent Teacher Conferences-Virtual

Elementary School instructions were sent via email.


Below are the Middle School instructions:


Parent Teacher conferences are still open to schedule on 10/29.


Like everything else, conferences will be unique this year. We will be hosting virtual conferences. If a teacher requested to meet with you, you were sent an email to sign up for a 10 minute slot. If your student was not requested, please choose a 5 minute time frame for any teacher you would like to meet with.


Skyward Directions:


  • Log into Skyward Family Access.

  • On the left hand side of the screen, you’ll see a tab titled Conferences. When you click on the link a window will open with your child(ren)'s name.

  • Next to your child's name you will see a blue link that says All Conferences, click on that link, select the time you would like, save and you'll see all of your child's classes, click Select Time with the teacher that is listed above as requesting a conference, click Select for the time slot you would like and Save. You are all scheduled to meet with that teacher at that time. You need to do this for each teacher you would like to meet with. In order to make this work, we work hard to stick to the scheduled times. If you feel that you need a longer time frame to meet with a certain teacher, please email the teacher directly or Mrs. Kalina to schedule a time outside of the two conference dates.


If you are just looking for a little information and would prefer not to use google meet, please feel free to email teachers directly and they can respond.


Next week, you will receive an email with all of the teachers google meet links.

We ask that you log on to the teacher you are scheduled to meet with a few minutes early and the teachers will admit you into the "meet" as soon as they are able. This will be tricky if you sign up for back-to-back times. Please give yourself a buffer in between conferences. We encourage you to have your middle school student with you. They can help you navigate the links, as they are experts and we love when middle school students own their learning!


If you would like to schedule a quick meeting with Mrs. Kalina, just send her an email (kalina@erinschool.org). She will send you a link and a time that hopefully is close to your other conferences.


Please let Mrs. Kalina know if you have any questions and we appreciate your flexibility and patience as we continue to navigate this year.

Sissix Eclips2-diy electronic cutter

The front office no longer has a need for our Sissix machine. It's somewhat similar to a Cricut but not as many options.

We are more than happy to part with it for a donation.

Machine is "sold" AS IS. It comes with used mats, used blade, user's guide, usb cable and power cord. Software needs to be downloaded.

If you are interested in it please email Mrs. Matthys (matthys@erinschool.org)-first come, first serve.

Good News Club (4K-5th grade)

Good News Club will be held on Mondays at Erin School in the Art room. Sessions will run from 3.30 pm-4.30 pm starting Nov 9th through April 2021.

If you are interested please complete the sign up form for your student and drop it off at the front office.

Please make sure to let your student's teacher know if they are going to GNC.
