Morning Motivation 9/18/2020


Good Morning Spartans...

Happy Friday and congratulations on yet another amazing week!

Who doesn't love a good challenge?

Our remote start has put a huge damper on one of my favorite Friday traditions...The SMS Front Foyer Dance Party. On a typical Friday, Mrs. Zlotnikov and I would be jamming out to our favorite songs while welcoming students for the final day of classes. In honor of this tradition, we are issuing a challenge for you to start your day with your favorite song....and....DANCE!

Click Here for some inspiration from your teachers.

Need a song to dance to???


Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Mr.C and Mrs. Zlotnikov

First Fridays....Take 2

Song of the Day

Does anyone remember this song from 2011? Rebecca Renee Black, an American YouTuber and singer, gained extensive media coverage when the music video for her February 10, 2011 single "Friday" went viral on YouTube and other social media sites. HAPPY FRIDAY!

How do I report an absence?

Great question! Please have your parent/guardian reach out to our School Nurse, Ms. Farrar at cfarrar@dps109.org or by calling the front office 847-948-0620 to leave a message.

You can then reach out to your teachers individually via email to let them know you will be absent and see what you might miss for the day. Check Google Classroom as well.
