Shabonee Newsletter 2-12-21

Monday, February 15 is Presidents’ Day and school will not be in session. 

I want to acknowledge and give a big “THANK YOU” to the PTA and all the room parents who gave their time to prepare activities that helped the children enjoy the classroom holiday celebrations this school year. Not only were they able to make these events fun, but they also did so via Zoom under unique circumstances. Each of the celebrations brought about many smiles, laughter, and joy for the kids. We appreciate our parent volunteers! 

Substitute Teachers Needed

District 27 is still in need of substitute teachers for the remainder of the school year. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Theresa Fournier at 

Families of fully remote students: 

The next remote pick-up will take place on Thursday, February 18, from 4:00 - 5:30, following the same process used in previous pickup dates in the fall at Door A (main entrance). 

Terra Nova Testing (Reminder) 

Shabonee third, fourth, and fifth grade students will take Terra Nova Reading Survey and Math Survey assessments when they are in person at school on February 17 (A group) and February 18 (B group). The tests will be administered in the mornings on those two days. Third grade students only will have additional tests on February 19, 22, 23, and 24 in the morning when they are in person. Children working remotely on these days will be provided with asynchronous activities while children at school are testing. To establish an optimal testing environment, please make every effort to ensure that your child arrives at school on time.
