From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

Today we had the honor of welcoming Mrs. Puri into our lunch room to play harp during all of our lunches! Our students were amazing listeners and so respectful. They thoroughly enjoyed listening to her music. Thank you Mrs. Puri!

Our last Frindle Friday was today! We had whole school trivia questions to end each Friday and the kids loved it! Thank you to Mrs. Anderson, our Reading Specialist for organizing our One School, One Book. We hope you all enjoyed reading Frindle together!

I wish you a time or rest, relaxation, quality family time, and lots of FUN!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The School Board has approved an E-Learning plan that gives the district the option to offer remote learning in place of emergency days. Currently, our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24, which is the week before Memorial Day. As we move into the winter months, we want to update you on the plan for how the district will manage emergency days and e-learning days.

  • If we experience inclement weather, the first three days will be “snow days” that will be made up at the end of the school year on May 25, 26, and 27 as needed.

  • Subsequent emergency days will be remote days so the last attendance day will still be before Memorial Day.

  • If there is a long stretch of inclement weather (blizzard, polar vortex, etc.), we may split the days into “snow days” and e-learning days so as to not have too many non-attendance days in a row.

St. Charles Education Foundation

Over the past 30 years, the STC Ed Foundation has donated almost $1.4 million to support D303 students. Last year, at Wild Rose, we received a grant that funded mobile bookcases. The foundation also gave $10,000 to improve internet connectivity in school neighborhoods, and funded four scholarships for high school seniors. Please consider supporting this important organization by donating, giving teacher tributes, attending the spring event at Pollyanna Brewing - or all of the above!
