Principal’s Message- October 5, 2017

Jesse White Tumblers jumping over students

Dooley had an AWESOME week!  The Blue Ribbon celebration continued every day.  The students where dazzled by the Schaumburg Marching Band and Cheerleaders.   They were mesmerized by the Jesse White Tumblers (courtesy of Dooley PTA) and enjoyed the Dooley carnival.  It was fun to see all the children wearing their blue tie-dye shirts today.  Another highlight was our parent day.  We were so excited to share our Blue Ribbon celebration with you.  The children were so thrilled to have their parents in the building creating a family blue ribbon alongside of them.  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to come and celebrate with us.

Goal Setting Conferences were a success.  It was so nice to see children, teachers and parents sitting down together discussing students’ progress thus far and setting goals.  Dooley School is so successful because of the partnership between home and school.  Thank you for your constant support!

Donuts for Dads

Friday, Oct. 13, PTA will be hosting Donuts for Dads.  Calling all dads to come to Dooley at 7:45AM to come and eat breakfast with your child before school starts.

Online Report Card

District 54 launched an online report card at the end of last school year.  Everyone who has a parent portal account will be able to see their children’s report cards online by November 21, 2017. All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account but have supplied District 54 with an email address will receive an email during the first week of October with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you do not receive an email but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office.  If you are unable to access the parent portal and require a paper copy of your student’s report card, please contact our office.

District 54 Education Foundation – Upcoming Support Opportunity

Throughout the month of October, when you dine at Salata at 140 E. Golf Road in Schaumburg and “salute” the District 54 Education Foundation at checkout, 15 percent of your bill will be donated to the Foundation.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Foundation last month by dining at Lou Malnati’s in Schaumburg and to everyone who attended the Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club and Schaumburg A.M.
