Sorrick Family Focus

Week of December 17, 2018

Weekly Update

Dear Sorrick Families,


Sorrick School is bustling with energy and excitement this week as we wrap up the month of December! Each year during the final week before Winter break, the Conrady band fills the hallways with festive music in their annual "Hark the Hallways event. On Wednesday, classes that have earned at least 10 team tickets will participate in the PBIS Polar Express Party! Hot cocoa will be delivered to classes (made with water and without marshmallows). Please be sure to contact your child's teacher if you do not want your child to participate in this event or if you do not what him or her to have the hot chocolate. We are also excited for the MAP dance party reward on Thursday! Students who put forth their best effort and took their time on the MAP assessment will be invited to participate. Finally, our Winter parties will take place on Friday at 10:15 AM and 2:00 PM. This truly is an exciting week to be a Sorrick Cougar!


As 2018 comes to a close, I want to wish you all a very fun and relaxing Winter break. I hope that you enjoy spending time with friends and family over the next couple of weeks! Please remember to keep the Sorrick office informed if your child is going to miss any days of school before or after Winter break due to family vacations. You can call our 24-hour attendance line at (708)598-5743.


Your partner in education,


Natalie Profita

Principal of Sorrick School

5Essentials Survey for Parents

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for parents will be available until February 15, 2019. This survey is to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades pre-kindergarten through 12. The parent survey is available in both English and Spanish, and only takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.


If you have more than one child and they attend the same school, you may elect to participate multiple times. For parents with children enrolled in multiple schools, we recommend that they participate in the survey for each school. Only one parent per household may participate in the survey.
