Hometown School Newsletter
September 20, 2022
Thank you to all of the families who came to the open house last week. There were many great compliments about our teacher presentations and being back to a "normal" school year. This week's newsletter has many flyers and important information. If you have questions, please reach out.
Open House Information
If you missed the open house and would like more information about your child's teacher, please reach out to the teacher. We have attached the specials teachers' information to the weekly. Please follow up if you have specific questions.
We have added some comprehension questions to use with your children as they are reading a book at home. Use these questions to start a conversation with your children about what they are reading.
Title I Compact
Our school is a Title I school. Please remember to send the compact back signed by September 27th. Please let me know if you have questions.
Please save the date for some upcoming events. We will host a book fair October 4th-6th. We will have family game night October 6th from 6pm-7:30pm and Mother/Son bowling on October 8th. Flyers will be going home next week. Please reach out to Kari Devine with questions at 708-691-3003. If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to Kari. We would like to have all of our events and if we do not get volunteers we will have to cancel them.
Students will be able to visit the book fair October 4th-6th. Please see the flyer to volunteer. Students will be bringing home flyers to look at some of the selections of books.
