Erickson Express

Family Newsletter

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year

Dear Erickson Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer! I can't wait to see students and hear about their fun summer memories. The Erickson Express will be sent home each Thursday throughout the school year to keep families informed on the happenings at Erickson. Please review this issue to hear about the back to school events. The office is open to answer any questions: 630-529-2223.

Looking forward to our partnership and to the beginning of an amazing school year of "Educating and Inspiring the Future!"

Stacy Johnston

Event Details

Information Day: Information Day is Tuesday, August 17th from 1:00-6:00 at Erickson. This is an opportunity for parents to view class lists & bus routes, sign-up for PTO events, and receive other information relevant to the upcoming school year. In order to have your student's name included on a class list, the student must be registered at Erickson by Friday, August 6th, 2021.

Meet the Teacher/Supply Drop-Off: Erickson Elementary School will be hosting a Meet the Teacher/Supply Drop-Off event from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm for Kindergarten - 5th grade students on Tuesday, August 24. This is an opportunity for you and your child to come to Erickson before school begins to 1) meet your teacher and 2) drop-off your child’s classroom supplies. This will hopefully provide an easier transition for the first day of school. One adult may attend per child.
