Shabonee Newsletter 8-16-19

The teachers and staff returned today and were actively engaged in a variety of training, professional development, and planning to welcome children next Wednesday, August 21 for the first day of school. Families should have received my welcome letter with information about new staff and the start of school. Also included in the mailing was information about teachers, arrival/dismissal, lunch rotations, and snack practices/allergy information. Please take a moment before the first day of school to review that information. The children will bring home an additional packet of information on the first day of school. 

Please note that the school office will be closed periodically on Monday, August 19 and Tuesday, August 20 while the staff are involved more training and meetings. We look forward to seeing all of our dolphins on Wednesday! 

 

School Supplies (Final posting) 

School supply lists are posted on our website. For the families that purchased supplies through the PTA, those kits will be waiting in your child’s classroom on the first day of school.  

 

Curriculum Night, Wednesday, August 28

We look forward to seeing all of our parents at curriculum night on Wednesday, August 28. Parking is limited and I encourage you to carpool with friends and neighbors. Only park in designated parking stalls. Overflow parking is available on the blacktop behind the gym after parking spaces in the east and west lots have been filled. Parking in the fire lane or non-designated spots may result in a violation from the Northbrook Police Department.
