Weekly Update

Dear Families,

Thank you to those of you who attended our first PTA meeting of the year! It was wonderful meeting you and I look forward to seeing you at all of our wonderful PTA events throughout the year. We are so appreciative of the countless hours of time and energy put in by our PTA members each year, so thank you for helping to support our school community!

If you are interested in joining the PTA, it's not too late! If you wish to join, please complete this form and return your dues by September 20th. As an added incentive, the class in each grade level with the most memberships by the end of September will get a special treat.

There are so many events throughout the year that are only a success because of help from volunteers like you. PTA members who wish to volunteer may view the 2019-2020 list of PTA events list here. Please remember that your ID must be on file in the front office at least 7 days prior to volunteering. The volunteer guidelines sheet can be accessed here.

Families of Pre-K students are required to attend our Parent Participation Orientation this week on Thursday, September 12th. Sessions will be held in the APR and translators will be available both in the morning and afternoon. Please see the schedule below to attend a session with a translator. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Finally, I would like to thank the families who came out to the parent event at Morraine Valley Community College on September 4th to learn about the free tuition courses for those whose second language is English. We had a great turnout and hope that you found the information beneficial!

Have a great week!

Your partner in education,

Natalie Profita

Principal of Sorrick School
