Week of August 26, 2019

Weekly Update

Dear Families,


We had a wonderful first week back to school! It was such a joy to see our Sorrick students making new friends and learning their daily routines. I know that we are going to have a fantastic school year! Here are some important dates to be aware of this week:


School Picture Day

School picture day will be on Monday, August 26th. We are excited to see our students dressed in their nicest outfits tomorrow! You will have the opportunity to purchase photo packages and a retake day will be offered if you wish to have your child retake their photo.


Parent Orientation Night

This Wednesday, August 28th, I hope that you can join us for our annual Parent Orientation Night from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. At this event, we will welcome you to your child's classroom(s) and share some important information about our school and the curriculum. The evening will be divided into two sessions:


6:00 - 7:00 PM - During the first session, you can visit your child's AM teacher. We will begin with a short video with school-wide information, followed by a presentation from the teacher.


7:00 - 8:00 PM - During the second session, you can visit your child's PM teacher. We will begin with a short video with school-wide information, followed by a presentation from the teacher.


This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about your child's school experience. We hope to see you there!


Half Day of School

This Friday, August 30th, students will attend a half day of school. The morning session will be from 9:00-10:00 AM and the PM session will be from 11:00 - 12:00 PM. If your child is a walker, please note that we will have a different arrival and dismissal location on this date:


AM (9:00) Arrival - Students will enter at door #6

10:00 Dismissal - please pick up students at door #6


PM (11:00) Arrival - Students will enter at door #6

12:00 Dismissal - Students who normally exit at door #5 will be dismissed by the playground gate. Please stand near the gate with the sign to pick up your child. Students who normally exit at door #6 will exit from door #6 as usual.


Please call the Sorrick office at 708-233-8200 if you have any questions. Just a reminder, there will be no school on Monday, September 2nd due to the Labor Day holiday. School will resume Tuesday, September 3rd.


Have a wonderful week!
