PANDEMIC PARENTING

The Alliance for Early Childhood welcomes you to attend their upcoming virtual parent program, PANDEMIC PARENTING TOOLS & TIPS: Creating Cozy Connections at Home, Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

With winter fast approaching, many parents are wondering how they’ll make it through the long days and months ahead. Families are around each other all day long, but rather than feeling close and connected, they feel isolated and resentful. What would a Good Day look like in your house? How can you make that happen? Having a plan can help! Come learn small but powerful shifts that will strengthen your connection with your children, foster cooperation, and support your family’s well-being. Program facilitated by Molly Pope, I/ECMHC, Parent Coach, and Speaker and Trainer. Event Flyer Register Here.  Can’t attend live? That’s okay… register and the recorded link will be emailed to you.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

We are pleased to reach out and share some exciting plans that are in the works for South School.  Our Board of Education has prioritized the use of capital improvement funds to ensure that the heating and cooling systems at South School are updated to provide an optimal learning environment.

Beginning in mid-October, the first phase of the project will commence. Fencing has been set up around the exterior work area at the back field adjacent to Watts. The walkway from Randolph to South School will remain open. Within the work area, machinery will create the borings that will become the geothermal well field for future installation at South School. Work will only occur within the prescribed Village of Glencoe work hours and all machinery will remain within the fenced worked area for the duration of this phase of the project. We anticipate this work will be completed by mid-December.

Please feel free to contact Jason Edelheit, Director of Finance and Operations, should you have any questions regarding this project.
