Dear Early Learning Center Community,
We sure packed a lot of learning into the short week last week! Thanks to everyone who supported our PTA Book Fair during conferences. If you haven’t yet joined the PTA this year, it’s not too late! You can access the membership form here.
From Our School Nurse:
This is a reminder to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits. While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.
District 54 Community Resource Center Calendar and Newsletter:
Our October calendars and newsletters are available on our website. You can access them in English and Spanish here. This Wednesday at the Hoffman Estates Police Department our Parent Educators are hosting a Halloween Safety Family Fun Night. We hope some of you will join us for the family fun from 4:30 – 6:00. Costumes are welcomed and encouraged! For more info, check out their newsletter!
Picture Retake Day:
This Thursday, October 24th has been set aside for the Early Learning Center picture retake day. If your child was absent for Picture Day in September, now is your opportunity to get one done. You should have received your child’s pictures last week. If not, please feel free to check in with your child’s teacher about student pictures.
With Halloween right around the corner, we’ve already had some questions in regards to our Halloween parade and costumes. The ELC’s Halloween celebration will take place on Thursday, October 31st. Students should come dressed in their costumes to school that day. Our student parade will begin in the building at 8:15 am for our morning session and 11:45 pm for our afternoon session. Weather permitting, we will parade outside of the building as well for parents. Parents are welcome to observe the parade from outside, and student dismissal is at our usual Thursday times.
Halloween is a fun and special time of year for many children. In order to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our children, please keep in mind the following considerations:
We appreciate your support in following these guidelines so Halloween is enjoyable for all.
Looking forward to another great week,
Julie Gorvett & Kelly Dvoracek
