Waterbury Roar

Volume 1, Issue 24; February 19th, 2021

A Roar from our Principal, Dr. Jon Pokora

Waterbury Community,


I hope everyone has stayed warm and safe with this constant inclement weather.

Next week is a different type of week.


We have rescheduled picture day for Monday, February 22nd. If you have not had a picture taken, we strongly encourage you to sign up here. We also have a crazy hair day. If your child wishes to do both, please make sure to schedule the retake early in the day so that they may have crazy hair the rest of the day.


On Tuesday, February 23rd, we will have an asynchronous day. Every student will do their work as there will not be in-person learning on this day.


On Thursday, February 25th, we will be hosting our version of Read Across America. This is an exciting day and I cannot wait to see all the readers!


Last, on Friday, February 26th, this is a DuPage County wide Institute Day. This means there is no school for kids as teachers will be in professional development.

Turning the page from next week, we also begin the third trimester. Please do not hesitate to reach out should you need any additional assistance.


Thanks and have a great day,


Dr. Jon Pokora

Shut Down your Chromebooks Properly Each Night

Please have your student follow the directions on how to properly shut down their Chromebooks each night. A lot of the technology issues we have been experiencing lately are just a matter of having the Chromebooks shut down properly so that updates can occur. See the pics and pdf below on how to do this in the proper manner. Thank you so much for your help and cooperation.
