Message From Central Road School

Mrs. Joanna Shostachuk, School Principal

A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 7/29/2021

Dear Central Road Families:

I hope you are all having an amazing summer break! It is so valuable to take quality time to spend with family and friends especially after the 20-21 year. The time off was rejuvenating and much needed for all of us. My family spent time traveling to Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Georgia for some fun in the sun. We probably visited every park, splash pad, and bike trail in the Northwest suburbs too. In between, we squeezed in some small scale adventures with family and friends. Family always comes first and our time together was memorable and simply relaxing!

As I began my transition to Central Road as of July 1, 2021, I have enjoyed getting to know our staff and community. I have already felt a great sense of pride, team work, and connectivity in my short time here. It is evident that students come first. I enter the 2021-2022 school with huge excitement, enthusiasm, and some natural nervousness. I thank you all in advance for your flexibility, patience, and partnership. I am simply thrilled about welcoming all of our students back to school in the coming weeks.

Communication is key and is part of the foundation to any successful working home-school partnership. Please plan to receive regular, written communication via a parent newsletter especially in the coming weeks as we all prepare for the upcoming school year. My door(s) will always be open to listen and work together. We will continue to accomplish amazing things for our Central Road community.

This summer, some of our students attended Summer Blast here at Central Road. Students had so much fun working with teachers and staff from across our district during our summer school program. It was great seeing our students smiling and wanting to learn for the few short weeks they attended.

The Central Road Elementary staff has been working very hard to prepare for another amazing school year! Both August 16th and 17th are dedicated to professional development days for our teaching staff. We will be focused on preparing our students for academic, social-emotional, and functional preparedness. We are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for your child(ren). Whether your child attended school in person or virtually last school year, we will be welcoming all of our students back with open arms!

We will be hosting a New Family Welcome on Wednesday, August 4th for all new, incoming families to Central Road School. Our welcome will take place virtually from 5:30-6:15 pm (all families). From 6:30-7:15 pm, we will be hosting a Spanish speaking session. All new families to Central Road School are welcome to attend as general information about our school and district will be shared.

5:30 pm Session:

6:30 pm Session (Spanish):

Teacher/classroom assignments will be viewable by parents/guardians in Infinite Campus

on/after August 5th after 4:00 pm. We are working hard on finalizing registrations and placing students appropriately into classrooms as needed. If you have not completed the registration process, please kindly contact our school office to finalize the process as soon as possible.

The Central Road teachers would like to tentatively invite all of our students to Meet the Teacher Day on Tuesday, August 17th from 8:30-9:30 am. We kindly ask students to bring their school supplies to Meet the Teacher. If you and your child are not able to attend our scheduled Meet the Teacher Day, your child may bring his/her supplies on their first day of school. School supply lists have been linked below for your review. All entering our building on this day are asked to wear a mask.

I am so excited and proud to be the new Principal at Central Road Elementary School. While I have “big” shoes to fill, I am confident that we are going to have a successful, fun, and productive school year together. Please enjoy these final weeks of summer. I look forward to getting back in the routine of things with many smiling faces walking the halls of our amazing school!

Kindest Regards,

Joanna Shostachuk
