Principal’s Message- May 19, 2017

We had such a great week!  The highlight of the week was celebrating our 50th anniversary.  Despite the high winds, the night was a success.  The students, staff and parents enjoyed all the activities.  A HUGE thank you goes to Sarah Mawhorr and Liz Spandiary for organizing and running the event.  Thank you to all the PTA members and staff for volunteering their time that evening!

Change in Obento Lunch Date

Due to the 1st, 2nd and 6th graders going on a field trip next Monday, May 22nd, Obento lunch has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 23rd. Tuesday, May 23rd will be Sweet Bread Day AND Obento Lunch (Gabutto Burger).  Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience.  Schaumburg Oyanokai

6th Grade Parents

You are invited on the last day of school to participate in our tradition of sending off our 6th graders.  If you are interested in joining us, please be at Dooley at 2:15.  Upon dismissal, the entire school will line up along the walls of Dooley School.  Once in position, the 6th grade students will exit the school by walking the halls of Dooley seeing each staff member and student.  Parents can join the line and help say goodbye and good wishes to our sixth graders as they pass by.  At 2:40, the 6th grade students, teachers and parents will end in the gym for a final social gathering until dismissal at 3:00.  Bring your cameras!  If interested, come to the office and we will show you where to go.

Field Day

Field Day is scheduled for Friday, May 26th (rain date May 30th).  To make this day a success we need as many parent volunteers as we can get.  Mr. Mennella sent home a flyer to solicit volunteers.  If you are willing to volunteer, please send the slip back to the school ASAP indicating when you are able to help us out.
