Please note that both the north and south sides of Bridle Lane are no parking zones from 8:00am until 4:00pm. The Wheaton Police Department acknowledges that parents need to line up for student drop-off and pick-up, but this area still remains a no parking area.
Please do not start lining up in your car until 8:45am for school arrival and 3:15pm for school dismissal. Vehicles in this area prior to these times or vehicles that are left unoccupied are subject to citation.
In addition, please take care to leave driveways accessible when you are in the car line. Also, there should not be any double-parking.
Thanks for a Great Fun Fair & Book Fair, PTA!
Thinking of Next Year
As spring is in full swing, I know that many of your thoughts are already turning toward next school year. Soon, I will begin working with the teachers on student placement for next year. Since students move in and out of our attendance area and staffing can change over the summer, the process will continue into August. We do our best to develop classes that provide the best opportunities for optimal teaching and learning. Due to the complex nature of developing class lists, it is impossible to accommodate requests for specific classroom teachers. The following quote is from the Parent/Student Handbook:
Many professional hours of planning and preparation are spent in the spring to ensure the most appropriate class placement for each child. To change even one student can upset the balance that was very carefully created by teachers and principals. Therefore, requests for a child's placement with a specific teacher are not invited.
We do value your input, and we invite you to share your thoughts and impressions about your child's needs. Feel free to email me at email@example.com. It will be most helpful to receive any information you have to share by mid-May. Please understand that class placements will not be finalized and communicated to parents until sometime in August.

The Health Office would greatly appreciate donations of gently used pants with elastic waistbands in all sizes. Muddy season is here, and some students will need to borrow clean pants. Thank you!
Knight Writers (and Speakers and Video Creators)!
As part of the CUSD 200 Vision 2022 teachers in all grades are focusing on developing students' skills in writing and message production (speaking, presenting, creating videos). We are also working to create opportunities for students to write and communicate with authentic audiences. Student writing and message production will be included in the Knightly News this year. Enjoy!
