Aiming to Keep You Informed

August 30, 2019

From the Office


We had a wonderful afternoon today celebrating the start of the school year with all students and staff together for our Back-to-School Bash. We would like to thank our PTO Board members and all of the PTO volunteers for assisting with organization, supervision and concessions during the Bash! A special shout-out to PTO Board members Tina Piemonte and Michelle Caravello, and our very own Mr. Jeremy Gabriel for their roles in coordinating the event! We hope everyone had a great time meeting new people and strengthening current friendships!


Curriculum Night - September 5th, 6:30 - 8:00pm

We would like to invite all parents & guardians to attend Curriculum Night on September 5th, at 6:30pm. Curriculum Night is an opportunity to walk your child's schedule, briefly visit each of your child's classes, and meet their teachers. Each period is only 8 minutes long, with a 4 minute passing period, so unfortunately there is not enough time to conference with teachers that evening. However, at any time during the year, feel free to reach out to your child's teacher or team leader to schedule an individual or group conference with our staff.


Safety Drills

Yesterday, we held our 2nd Fire Drill of the school year. Each year Illinois School districts are required to complete 3 Fire Drills, 1 Severe Weather drill, 1 Bus evacuation Drill, and 1 Law Enforcement drill. Next week, the Bloomingdale Fire and Police Departments will be joining us as part of a Safety Day, where we practice our emergency drills with students and staff.


PTO Fundraiser

If you have not had a chance to participate in the PTO Fall "UnFundraiser", please consider doing so. We appreciate the amazing support we receive from our PTO parents!


Forget something at school?

If you find that you left an item at school after dismissal, the Main office is open until 4:00pm and the custodians will check the Front Door once again at 4:50pm if you need to enter the building briefly to retrieve an item.

Have a wonderful extended weekend!
