Good Morning Collins Community –
It was great to see you all here for our fall parent-student-teacher conferences. We would like to thank our fabulous PTA Book Fair Committee and all of the parent volunteers for making it possible to have another successful Scholastic Book Fair this past week. Please see the latest edition of the Collins Clips that is attached to this email. 10-10-14 Collins Clips
Collins Special General PTA Meeting:
Please remember, on Tuesday, October 14th at 6:00 PM,the Collins PTA will be holding a general PTA meeting in the gym. A representative from the STC will be in attendance to share an informational presentation on Senate Bill 16. If you are interested in learning more about the bill, please attend this meeting. I have included the link to Superintendent DuRoss’ monthly article again below about Senate Bill 16. As a reminder, if the Illinois General Assembly were to approve this bill, District 54 would lose $12.5 million, or about $1,000 per student. This would greatly impact our ability to provide a quality education to our students. Click here to read the article for more information. We will be starting promptly at 6:00 PM.
Important Dates to Remember:
Oct. 13th —Columbus Day – No School
Oct. 14th – PTA General Meeting – Information on Senate Bill 16
Oct. 17th – Picture Retake Day 1:00-2:30 PM
