Thirty Million Words: Building a Child's Brain
Tuesday, Nov. 13th, 7pm
Glen Ellyn Public Library, 400 Duane Street, Glen Ellyn
This event is co-sponsored by Glenbard Early Childhood Collaborative, Westminster Preschool, Glenbard Parent Series, and the Glen Ellyn Public Library.
Our lunch program is a great option for those busy mornings when you may not have time to pack a lunch. Please know that if your child doesn't have a lunch, we will always provide one for her/him through our hot lunch program at school.
We use a cashless system for our hot lunch program. All students have a lunch card, and you can load money onto your child's card using the My School Bucks online system, or by sending cash or check to school, payable to CUSD 200. If you prefer that your child does not have a lunch card, please let us know, and we can pull the lunch card from the class stack. Please contact our school office if you would like us to remove your child's lunch card.
Charleston Wrap Fundraiser is Coming
Although we just wrapped up the annual Run A Thon (dollars raised will be announced in the coming weeks), your PTA is already gearing up for our next fundraiser - the Charleston wrapping paper sale. The catalog will be coming home next week! Sales will be open from October 1 - October 15 with delivery of items shortly after Thanksgiving. Last year the PTA spent nearly $22,000 on programs, events, and school improvement projects. While we can't afford to do as much this year, we hope to be able to maintain much loved PTA-sponsored activities such as field trips, assemblies, Dreambox subscriptions, clubs, and more. The need to raise funds quickly this fall has precipitated the back-to-back fundraising push. We hope you enjoy the items Charleston has to offer!

Vision and Hearing Screening
This information was also in the 9/14 and 9/21 newsletters, and is just a friendly reminder!

Vision and Hearing: Grades K, 2, transfer students without a current screenings on file and Special Education students
Hearing only: Grades 1 & 3
Please note that a vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Chris Gilbertsen, School Nurse at 630-682-2065.
Rent the Hawthorne Sign - Your Kids Will Love It!
