Seasonal Change

Park View Families,

Fall is here and a chill is in the morning and evening air. This is the time we long for hot cider, apple cinnamon donuts, and any food or drink with pumpkin spice. It is also time for me to remind families about the importance of students bringing outerwear to school. We continue to go out for recess as long as the windchill is ten or above. This means your child(ren) will be going outside multiple times during the day (unless we have rain or severe weather). Please make sure your child(ren) has/have appropriate outerwear including sweaters, jackets, hats, scarves, gloves and eventually boots and snow pants. Mrs. D'Amore, our Social Worker, is happy to help any families that need assistance with outerwear or any other needs. You can contact her directly at 630-827-4046 and all calls are confidential. We love to help our families in any way we can.

Upcoming Parent/Teacher Conference Information

This year our conferences will be held on Monday (11/22) and Tuesday (11/23). The conference times begin at 1:00 pm and end at 8:00 pm. All conferences are 20 minutes in length so it is imperative that families are on time to their conference as teachers must stay on schedule. This year, we want to offer opportunities for both in-person and virtual conferences so our Monday (11/22) conferences will be in-person and our Tuesday (11/23) conferences will be virtual. Please keep that in mind when you go into Skyward to schedule your conferences. If you choose a virtual conference you will be sent a link before the conference by the teacher. Families will be able to go into Skyward to sign-up for conferences starting on Monday, November 1st through Friday, November 12th. Click here for directions on how to sign up for a conference through Skyward. Conferences are the best opportunity for you to: understand how your chil(ren) is/are doing, asking specific questions you have about your child(ren) or school, and to partner with your child(ren)'s teacher(s) to support them for success. Please do not pass up this opportunity regardless of if your child is is Kindergarten, Fifth Grade or any where in between. We look forward to seeing everyone!

FYI - Picture Retakes 10/26

Picture retake day is Tuesday, October 26th. If your child was absent on our original picture day, they will be able to sit for their pictures on the 26th. If you have not submitted an online order for your child's pictures and need a paper order form, please have your student stop in the office to pick one up. If your child was present on our first picture day but would like to have a retake, please send their prints to school with them on the 26th so that they can be returned to Lifetouch. These students will be called to the LRC to sit for a new picture and you do not need to prepare a new order form for them.
