Tornado Practice on Thursday, April 15
On Thursday, April 15, at 1:45 PM, you might hear tornado sirens throughout Wisconsin as part of this practice.
Also, please feel free to collect and share photos of family celebrations, dinners, or decorations of your observances of Ramadan and Eid with Ms. Conigliaro. We have a global community here at Lake Bluff, and students love sharing their traditions and learning about those of others.
For non-Muslim families who are interested in learning more about Ramadan, you can look at this article: Ramadan and Distance Learning: Insight from Two Muslim Parents, or you can check out this picture book: Night of the Moon, by Hena Khan.
