Hard Lockdown Drill
Yesterday your children participated in a hard lockdown drill hosted by two officers from the Schaumburg Police Department. Our students and staff did a wonderful job of quickly and quietly getting in our lockdown position! Staff and students have a set location in each room so when lights are turned off they are completely invisible to anyone on the outside of the locked classroom door.
The ISAT window is scheduled for March 3rd – 14th for all students in Grades 3-6.
- Third and Fourth grade students will take the Reading tests on March 4th, 5th and 7th and the Math tests on March 4th, 6th and 11th .
- Fourth grade students only will take the Science tests on March 7th and 13th.
- Fifth and Sixth grade students will take the Reading tests on March 4th, 6th, and 11th and the Math tests on March 4th, 5th and 7th
It is essential that students are present at school during this time. Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments.
Although we are in February, it still isn’t too late to join the PTA. PTA is a parent teacher organization whose primary purpose is to advocate for children. The Collins PTA provides many fun and educational activities for your children. Collins PTA sponsors our Back to School Picnic, purchases books for the children on their birthdays, provides an assignment notebook (1st-6th), a school folder for every student at the beginning of the year, provides interesting assemblies, numerous family nights and much more. Your membership helps us make these beneficial programs and events possible. Please follow this link for information on joining our PTA and volunteer opportunities: http://collins.sd54.org/pta/
We hope to see many of your this evening!
Have a great weekend,
