A weekly newsletter from the Kingsley Administrative Team
November 18, 2022
Winter is officially here. The students enjoyed the snow this week. Please continue to send your children to school with appropriate winter clothing for recess as well as a pair of indoor shoes. We will go outside for recess as long as the temperature, including the real feel, is above 0 degrees.
As a reminder, there is no school Wednesday, November 23rd through Friday, November 25th. This will be the final newsletter until after the break.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
Chuck Brewster & Eleni Gajewski

Pancake Breakfast Holiday Shop Volunteers Needed
We currently have $313,000 of the $320,000 goal. We project another $12,000 from our last few fundraisers and known donations. Thank you all for making our new accessible playground a reality!
The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 invites the community to participate in the Grove Express 5K on Thanksgiving Day. A portion of the proceeds will benefit District 58 students! Early bird registration has been extended through Nov. 6. Learn more here. Sign up here.
Parking During Arrival and Dismissal
As a reminder, the parking lot is closed during arrival and dismissal. This allows district buses and vans to complete their routes. Also, for the safety of students, we do not want them walking through the parking lot with moving vehicles.
These procedures allow for the safety of our students and neighbors. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
