Good afternoon Collins Community,
We hope that you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather. We had a fabulous week of learning here at Collins and celebrated meeting our school PBIS goal this morning at an all school assembly. Ask your student for details. Please see the latest edition of the Collins Clips attached.10-24-14 Collins Clips
Halloween is quickly approaching and we want to make sure you are aware of the guidelines we follow to ensure that Halloween is fun and safe for all students. Please read the Clips for our specific Halloween expectations. We hope to parade outdoors this year, weather permitting. Please remember that no goodie bags containing food items should be sent to school. Our PTA and Room Representatives have wonderful parties planned for your children.
Please see the attachments for information about how school closing will be communicated with families.
Schaumburg Parent University – November Classes:
Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are two classes scheduled for November.
- Family Fitness Night on Nov. 13 at Stevenson Elementary School: While the music is pumping, families will choose different stations to work their muscles and learn about at-home fitness opportunities.
- How to Build a Better Plate on Nov. 19 at the District Office: Alexian Brothers Lead Clinical Dietician Kirsten Johnson will talk to parents and guardians about how to eat right, plan right and shop right.
If you are interested in attending either event, please see the attached flyers. Childcare will be available. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit our website at http://sd54.org/spu.
