Carpenter Student Artwork on Display
I am very excited to share with you that we are officially showing D64 student artwork at Park Ridge's very own Triple Scoop'd Ice Cream shop!
Student artwork from Carpenter is on display now through the winter break. Lincoln and other D64 schools will also participate with shows of their own for the remainder of the year, possibly through the summer, and hopefully continue annually.
Student artwork in grades 3-5 celebrates the Pop Art movement with an ice cream and frozen treat theme through printing, collage, watercolors, while younger students worked with shape, line, color and texture to create self-portraits with a point of view for some decadent and mouth-watering results.
Cherry Street Drop-offs/Crossings
While I'm talking about that area, please refrain from dropping off your child on Hamlin at the ramp. It creates traffic back-ups. It best to drop-off curbside on Cherry.
All trimester 1 report cards will now be made available to view digitally this school year through the District’s parent portal! Instead of receiving a paper copy, parents will access their child’s report card at their own leisure and convenience. The trimester 1 report card will be available to view on December 1st at 8 am. After viewing online, you will be asked to digitally sign off that you have viewed your child’s report card. To be sure you can access this report card, please follow these directions for how to login. We hope this will allow parents better access to their child’s educational achievement.
If you would still like to request a paper copy or are unsure of how to login, please contact the main office secretary or building principal for assistance prior to December 1st.

Resource Links For Parents
Along with the PDF below, here is some additional information. The ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza is heart-wrenching. In a recent administrator newsletter from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), state superintendent Dr. Tony Sanders shared the following items, which could be helpful in navigating these conversations at home.
The National Association of School Psychologists has a downloadable flyer called Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Families and Educators, strategies for each grade level, and suggested talking points.
From Common Sense Media, an article called How do I talk to my kids about violence in the news? reminds us to get a sense of what children know before launching into an explanation, by using open-ended questions, like “What did you hear?” or “What do you know?” and “What do you think about it?”
I hope these resources are helpful to you, if your children have questions at home.
