Dear Stevenson Community,
What a spectacular 1st week of school! The success of Monday night’s supply drop-off and Curriculum Night allowed for a smooth transition on our 1st day of classes. It was so nice to see so many returning Stevenson families while welcoming our new families.
Run to Read – September 28
District 54 will host its 10th Annual Run to Read on Sunday, Sept. 28, at Dirksen School in Schaumburg. Run to Read is a day of races offering something for everyone. The day begins with 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children. At 8:45 a.m., we start our 5K run followed by a family walk at 9 a.m. All four events support our goal of collecting 1,000 children’s books for every classroom in District 54. To register or find out more information about Run to Read, please follow this link to the District’s website http://sd54.org/runtoread/. Register by Sept. 5 to save $5 on your registration fee and reserve a race T-shirt in your size. Finisher medals are awarded to the top 3 finishers in each age group and participation medals are awarded to all children. Mrs. Gordon will be volunteering at this event and hopes to see you there!
Schaumburg Parent University
District 54 is excited to once again offer our families the Schaumburg Parent University (SPU). The Parent University is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. They offer two types of classes – Practical Parenting for adults only and Time Together, where families learn and play together. Most classes are free and childcare is provided.
This year SPU has already scheduled parenting classes about Erin’s Law on Sept. 30 and internet safety on Oct. 7, as well as Time Together STEM projects on Sept. 16 and art projects on Oct. 22. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit their website at http://sd54.org/spu. SPU will be planning the rest of the classes for this school year and would like to hear from you: What classes would you be interested in taking? How would you prefer to learn about SPU? Please take this quick survey (7 questions)at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1767964/Schaumburg-Parent-University-Survey so that the Schaumburg Parent University can meet the needs of our community.
Have a wonderful week!
Maria Clifford and Christi Sosin
