Picture Re-Takes

In order to help logistics for us on Thursday, please complete the Google Form below so we know that your child will be re-taking a picture on Thursday.


We've learned from the past that going into a classroom and asking, "Who needs their picture re-taken?" isn't helpful, especially in our primary classrooms where most of the students raise their hands. :)

Parent Teacher Conferences

More information will come out later this week, but parent-teacher conferences will be 4-8 pm on 11/3, 11/7, and/or 11/10. You will sign up for a conference through your parent portal. The window will not be open until Thursday, October 20th. Please note that there will be one conference per family. If you have a special circumstance, you can reach out to Mr. Balduf. Otherwise, please communicate and plan accordingly within your family dynamic.

Special Circumstances:

Mrs. Seputis - not here 11/7

Mrs. Barbera - earlier conferences on 10/18, 10/20, and 10/25

Kiwanis/D64 Holiday Food Basket Drive

The Kiwanis Club of Park Ridge is hosting its Annual D64 Holiday Food Basket Drive to help families who could benefit from added support during the holidays. This year we have approximately 150 families in need.

All funds raised go directly back to our families in D64 in the form of a Holiday basket including a Mariano grocery gift card, pie, and holiday ham.

We understand the importance of family tradition and the role it plays in the life of a child. Holiday meals in particular help strengthen family bonds and provide an extra dose of happiness.

Can we count on you to help us bring holiday cheer to the children in our school district this holiday season? The drive will last for only a month, so please join us today. Donations can be made online or by check from 10/20/2022 to 11/20/2022.

To donate on-line, click https://kiwanisPR.org/

… or send a check to Kiwanis of Park Ridge

Park Ridge, IL 60068-3037

Sound easy?... It is! Make your holiday brighter by making a family’s holiday brighter. THANK YOU for CARING!

CoVid Communicating

This year, instead of sending out an email for CoVid cases, we will be updating a slide on our website. Please bookmark this page if interested in keeping tabs of our current cases and associated homerooms. I'll leave this in my weekly updates as well, but I'll gradually move this towards the bottom of the reading material.
