Yearbook - Senior Recognition
If you are interested in purchasing a senior recognition in the yearbook, please find the link here. This is an opportunity only available to seniors each year, and families often use this to share another senior photo or a favorite childhood photo with a message of congratulations or best wishes for the future. Senior recognitions are due by Friday, May 22nd.
If you have any questions about the Yearbook or Yearbook purchases, please contact the advisor, Ms. Lindsay Boynton, at Lindsay.Boynton@d303.org.

A great big shout-out of THANKS to Leah Lee for coordinating Graduation Sign delivery! It is a huge time commitment to do this. Her dedication was greatly appreciated, and we couldn’t have done it without our 29 volunteers who helped deliver the signs. Thank you to all of you for helping us celebrate the Class of 2020!
District 303 Information
The uncertainty surrounding young adults during this health crisis has led to increased fears and anxiety. The attached resource supports developing an understanding of what anxiety is AND what can be done to manage it. If your student is challenged by anxiety or you have noticed an increase in anxious behaviors, Dr. Green's self-paced and selected course may be beneficial. If you have any questions on the information provided or are seeking additional support for yourself or child, please contact Patti Palagi, Director Instructional Interventions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 331-228-6457.

Dig Deeper! Read, Investigate, and Discover with the St. Charles Public Library
Summer Reading is almost here! The St. Charles Public Library District invites children to read a little bit every day to keep up their reading skills outside of the school year. They can pick up a book in any format, print or digital, and they can read or be read to. If a child reads 20 minutes each weekday for the ten weeks of the program, he or she will reach 1000 minutes by August 2!
Starting May 26, visit our website or scpld.readsquared.com to sign up and start logging minutes online. Kids receive a virtual badge for every 100 minutes logged! Complete an online mission each week and earn additional minutes.
At 1000 minutes, kids are eligible for a book prize and an entry in our Grand Prize Drawing. There will be five gift baskets in the drawing- each focused on a different area: Reading, Science, Art, Video Games, and Legos.
Additionally, we are excited to announce that the St. Charles Public Library will be offering library cards to all District 303 students! Every student who attends a District 303 school will be eligible to get their own library card. Parents will opt-in for a student card when they do online registration. Please note that only students will be able to get a library card. Parents, or other family members who do not attend school are ineligible to receive a card.
A library card will give you access to all our ebooks and eresources while our public space is closed. You can access all the information on what we have available at scpld.org/ebooks.
We are so excited to offer this invaluable resource to our students in District 303. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Stulgate, 630-549-8971.
Let’s Talk provides a way for you to tell us what you think, ask us a question, or compliment a staff member.
