Final Field Flash
April 25, 2019
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It's hard to believe we have started thinking about next year and the weather has finally warmed up for spring. This is a good time to also remind all bike riders to walk their bikes on campus and wear helmets.
It's also hard to believe that this will be our last Field Flash for the 2018-2019 school year. If you have not yet sent in your parent feedback about your student's learning style and any students with whom they should not be placed, please note that the deadline is Friday, April 26th. Please send this information to me as it will be confidential between you and me.
We're also hoping that all registration problems have been resolved. The district is asking that all returning students complete registration with June 4, 2019 as a deadline. Please make sure you take care of this as soon as possible to avoid that deadline on the last day of student attendance.
As the weather has warmed, this is a good time to remind families that the playground is not open to the public until after school is dismissed. This is a district policy displayed on signs around the playground and is only in place to ensure that our students can have recess safely without non-Field students playing at the same time. This also ensures that any non-school age children are not harmed by larger school age children coming out for recess.

Come out to cheer our D64 Special Olympics 2019 Team!
D64 families and staff are invited to come and cheer for our D64 Special Olympics Team on Sunday, May 5, 2019. Opening ceremonies for the Track and Field Spring Games begin at 8 a.m.; competition events begin at 9 a.m. outdoors (on/around the track) at Prospect High School, 801 W. Kensington Rd., Mt. Prospect, IL 60056.
This year, D64’s team boasts seven students representing our two middle schools -- Emerson and Lincoln -- along with Field and Roosevelt. District 64 is very excited to offer our students the opportunity to participate and train as a team with their peers as part of the D64 Special Olympics Team. Our focus is not only to improve students’ physical skills, but also teach the athletes about competition, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
Special Olympics is an organization that provides year-round athletic competitions, which encourages the athletes to demonstrate courage, develop physical fitness, and experience joy while sharing their skills. Special Olympics focuses on athletes’ abilities with the goal of fostering a sense of community among the athletes.
Please show your proud support for our D64 team!
