Rocket Launch

Our super sprouts participated in a rocket launch on Monday! Students planned  how to build rockets and make them soar to the moon!

King Day

The boys in Ms. Katie’s room celebrate K-day by being king’s for the day and wearing blue and king crowns.

Hat Day

The students at the ELC are having fun counting down the last days of school. Check out our super sprouts celebrating Hat Day.

Scuba Adventure

 The students have been playing with “teacher made” scuba diving equipment while learning about the ocean. Today we had a visitor from a scuba diving school share about water safety and her equipment needed to spend large amounts of time underwater.  The children had many questions and made comparisons to their “equipment”.

Award of Excellence

We learned yesterday that our Parent Educator Team has been named recipients of an Award of Excellence in the 2017 Distinguished Service Awards Program sponsored by INSPRA! (Illinois Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association).
The statewide Distinguished Service Awards program honors individuals and groups who have gone above and beyond on behalf of their schools and whose efforts have enhanced education and conveyed the importance of the community at large.
Terri McHugh, Community Relations Representative for District 54, nominated the team as a result of the outreach, parent support, community engagement and communication our Parent Educators provide informing the District 54 community of services provided for our most at-risk families prenatal through age 5.
We are so very proud of this team and the work they do!
Congratulations to Dayna Prochaska, Jen Weisler, and Erin Wolaver.
