PTA Updates

Remember our Holiday Shop event is Saturday (12/4) at BEDNARCIK Jr High next door from 9-4!

We can't wait to see you Saturday to enjoy some holiday family fun.

There will be a $5/ under Holiday shop (in the Multi Purpose Room) where students can shop for all sorts of treasurers with a parent or they can shop secretly with our volunteers and surprise you with what they find! This part of the Holiday Shop is CASH ONLY.

There will also be a great Craft/ Vendor fair (in the gym) with over 40 vendors with lots of unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list. There are also a bunch of different raffles you won't want to miss! Shop around the craft fair as a family or while your student(s) are shopping at the Holiday Shop.

And if you pre-registered for the pancake breakfast come ready for a yummy way to start your day!

See flyers for more info- We can't wait to see you tomorrow!

Cold Weather is inevitably heading our way! A few reminders...

As we approach December, I have a cold weather reminder: Please send your child to school with hats, gloves, and even snow pants and boots once it gets snowy....we all know that can happen at a moment's notice in the Chicago area! We will get outside for recess/mask break as long as the "feels like" temperature (factoring air temperature and wind chill) is 10 degrees or above. Also, please practice with little ones to make sure they can put on their snow pants and boots independently.

Dear Families,

We signed our school up for the Chicago Wolves Hockey team Read to Succeed program. I have introduced this voluntary reading incentive program to all classes during their scheduled LRC time.

If they choose to participate they can fill out the 10 books they have read on the paper reading log or they can use this Google Form. We are asking the students to read and record ANY 10 books of their choosing. These can be books from home, school, and in class stories. They can read as a family or on their own. As long as they are reading they are following the directions!

Each student will need to fill in the google chart or paper chart and upon completion they need to turn in their log to the LRC or turn in the Google Form in their Google classroom.

Upon completion of their goal, I will then give them the form for a free Chicago Wolves hockey ticket! The calendar of available hockey games to attend starts in October and ends in April.

Happy Reading!

Mrs. Mahoney

Library Media Specialist
