School-Wide Monthly Celebration

Our students are on track to meeting our monthly behavior goal. This month, all students will participate in game time in the classroom. Students will be allowed to bring a school appropriate board game to play in class. There will also be some games available in the classroom. Please email your child's teacher with specific questions.

Talent Show

Congratulations to all contestants that performed in our Talent Show. Students were so brave to get on stage and perform their act in front of a big audience. The staff also overcame some stage fright. Great job to everyone! Thank you to our amazing PTA for hosting this fun event and thank you to our parent volunteers; Mr. Ryzner, Mrs. Ryzner and Mrs. Garibaldi. Pictures are attached.

5Essentials Survey- Parent Help NEEDED!

We really need every parent to take this SHORT survey to inform school improvement efforts. The 5Essentials is a comprehensive, evidence-based survey that is multiple choice. It only takes parents 5-8 minutes to complete. This information goes on the State Report Card and attracts families to our school. If we do not receive a 20% parent completion rate, we will not receive our results. Last year, we only received 19%. Please help us reach higher than 20%. For every parent that sends a screenshot of the completed survey, they will get a raffle ticket for an opportunity to win a $20 gift card.

District will send further information on February 1st when it opens.

Thank you for your help!

Parent Training

District 15 will be offerering a parent training on ways to handle an emergency situation. Please click on the PDF below if you are interested in attending.


Online registration through Infinite Campus is OPEN. EVERY student; new and returning, must register each year. It is extremely important that all families register as soon as possible and do not wait until the summer. Our staffing needs are determined by the number of students registered each year. Waiting to register right before school begins can cause changes to classes, changes in staffing and the need to re-section classes in order to balance classes. We kindly ask you to register as soon as possible. Thank you for your support!

Winter Gear for Recess

We kindly ask that you talk with your child to ensure they are leaving home with appropriate winter gear. All students are required to go outside for recess. Exceptions are made only when a child brings a doctor's note excusing him/her from outdoor recess.Please see our district-wide outdoor procedures below. If your child is in need of a winter jacket, please send me an email at

  • Staff members provide playground supervision. If students are not following behavior expectations, a staff member will address the behavior with the student(s). Based on the behavior, the child may speak to an administrator.
    Cold weather: Indoor recess is determined based on the following guidelines:

    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is below 0°F, all students will remain inside for the entire lunch hour.

    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is between 0°-10°F, the preferred procedure is a rotation of 20 minutes for lunch, a 20-minute outdoor recess, and a 20-minute indoor recess. However, at the principal's discretion, students may be kept inside for the entire lunch hour.

    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is above 10°F, students will have regular outdoor recess.

En espanol Recess

Los estudiantes generalmente salen al recreo todos los días, por lo que deben vestirse adecuadamente por el clima. Solo se hacen excepciones cuando un niño/a trae una nota del médico que lo excusa del recreo al aire libre.

Los miembros del personal proporcionan supervisión en el patio de recreo. Si los estudiantes no siguen las expectativas de comportamiento, un miembro del personal abordará el comportamiento con el/los estudiante/s. Según el comportamiento, el niño/a será enviado a hablar con un administrador.

Clima frío: El recreo interior se determina según las siguientes pautas:

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, es inferior a 0°F, todos los estudiantes permanecerán adentro durante toda la hora del almuerzo.

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, está entre 0°-10° F, el procedimiento preferido es una rotación de 20 minutos para el almuerzo, un recreo al aire libre de 20 minutos y un recreo interior de 20 minutos. Sin embargo, a discreción del director, los estudiantes pueden permanecer adentro durante toda la hora del almuerzo.

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, es superior a 10°F, los estudiantes tendrán un recreo regular al aire libre.
