Hometown School Newsletter
March 29, 2022
We hope you had a great spring break. It is great that the students are back and recharged to finish the 44 days left of school. In the newsletter today is the information for summer school. Please take some time to review it. Our district is offering a number of exciting classes. There will be two locations this year. Our special education population will remain at Hometown while our Launch and Discovery will be going to Covington.
The form went home today regardingSpring picture day.
Siblings can have their photo taken together but we have to receive the sheet back with the names on it. If they take sibling pictures, they will not have individual photos taken.
Everyone will be photographed. Two poses will be taken and you will receive one set of proofs. All orders will be placed online and shipped to the home.
*Avoid wearing Green.
If PM preK is having sibling photos, they will have to come at 8:45am.

Spring Craft Night- April 14th
PTA Meeting- State of the District
Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Virginia Lazinek
How long and what grades have you taught?
I have taught for 19 years in District 123. I have taught 6th grade, 2nd grade, 1st grade, and now I am the Library Media Specialist at both Hometown School and Hannum School.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
If I could travel ANYWHERE it would definitely be to Europe. I would love to make an entire Euro trip out of a month-long journey and visit Czechoslovakia, Germany, Croatia, because those are the countries where I get my Baltic routes from. However, I would LOVE to also visit France, Italy and Spain as well to be able to study the different cultures there!
What is the best thing about working at Hometown?
The best thing about working at Hometown School is the students of course!! Hometown School has such sweet and respectful students who love to learn! I love to be able to help them quench their hunger for the books they're interested in and also teach them how to research topics they want to learn more about!
What is your favorite food?
I absolutely LOOOOOVE food, so this one is a hard one! LOL! I l also love trying new dishes from many cultures. However, I would HAVE to say that the one food I can NEVER seem to walk away from without having a slice, is good old fashioned Chicago style pizza. I love it all ; deep dish, stuffed, thin crust...you name it! Veggie pizza is my absolute fav!
Who is someone you admire and why?
Someone whom I admire greatly is my husband Mr. Lazinek! Together we have four children (two girls and two boys) and have been married for 25 years! He is also a police officer, which is a very difficult, but important job that requires lots of patience and tact. He has always done his best to make his family and his community feel safe and protected.
If you see Mrs. Lazinek around the school make sure you say hello!!
The Lazinek family love spending time together.
Being together is the greatest gift of all
Mr. & Mrs. Lazinek
They have been married for 25 years!
