    • Schaumburg Parent University to present Mindful Meditation

      November 14, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
      District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg

      As part of our ongoing focus on student wellness, we invite parents and their children to join us in learning how to use the power of something super simple – your breath – to improve concentration, reduce stress, improve quality of sleep and help you handle your response (both emotional and physical) to outside circumstances and situations. Spending as little as 2-5 minutes meditating each day provides you with clarity and peace of mind to handle whatever your day has planned for you. Guiding children to harness their inner strength to reset themselves through just a few breaths gives them a tool to call on anytime they encounter a situation that causes stress. Please bring your own yoga mat or a towel to sit on during meditation. This event will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on November 14, 2018, at the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg.

      To register, please contact Meg Kwak at 847-357-6586 or spu@sd54.org. Please leave your name, contact information, number of participants, number of children needing childcare (free) and your child’s school.

    Morning Student Drop-Off

    This is just a reminder that barricades will be placed at the school entrance from 8:20 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. every morning.  Only buses will be allowed in or out of the parking lot while the barricades are up.

    If parents choose to park on the neighborhood streets and walk their child to their door, remember to pay attention to the No Parking signs near the school.

    Lunches

    Please help your child remember to bring his/her lunch to school at the start of each day. Many parents deliver their child’s lunch during the lunch hour. The office is a busy place this time of day, so it would be greatly appreciated if students brought their lunch with them to school each day.

    Also, please remember that our lunch times have changed.  Grades 2, 4, and 5 have lunch from 11:15 to 12:00.  Kindergarten and grades 1, 3 and 6 have lunch from 12:00-12:45.  If you must drop off a lunch for your child, be sure it is in the office before the lunch period begins.
