Principal’s Message- April 23, 2018

It is so nice to see the sun shining today!  We are hoping spring is finally on its way and we can begin to enjoy activities outdoors.

Today the Schaumburg Police came and practiced with us a Hard Lock Down.  Our staff and students did great.  The students understood we were only running a drill today.

Field Day

Field Day is coming up and we need many volunteers to make it a success.  Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 24th.  Mr. Mennella will be sending out a request for volunteers soon.

MAP Testing

Our final round of MAP testing will begin the week of May 7th.  A more detailed testing calendar will be sent once we get closer to the date.
