WHAT A SCHOOL YEAR!
Wow! What a school year we had!
Thank you so much for your support and partnership throughout the school year. Thanks to our dedicated teachers, our students learned so much despite pandemic protocols in place. We will always remember the 2020-2021 school year and how we came together as a community to provide a safe and loving environment for learning.
This summer, the heating and cooling systems at South School will be updated to provide an optimal learning environment in the fall. Our physical building will be closed for construction, but I can be reached directly via phone or email throughout the summer (firstname.lastname@example.org, 847-835-6400).
Have a wonderful summer!
Stay safe and stay healthy,

ALLIANCE for EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENT PROGRAM
ALLIANCE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENT PROGRAM - Hello, Kindergarten! Helping Your Child Transition to Kindergarten After COVID Disruptions
Kindergarten is around the corner and some may have more than the usual butterflies in their stomach! COVID has made so many aspects of school and community-building difficult. For some, it’s also brought about more separation anxiety and challenging behavior in our young children. In addition to school supplies and materials, how can we prepare our children to feel ready for this transition? How do we not let our own worries and anxieties interfere with the process? You will learn simple yet effective strategies for successful transitions, to support your child for the first few weeks of Kindergarten as well as any new activity or event. Join us on August 19, 7:00 p.m. at our upcoming virtual program so your little one can enter those new school doors with confidence and curiosity!
This virtual program is facilitated by Molly Pope, I/ECMHC, Parent Coach, and Speaker and Trainer.
Registration is required. Please register here. Can’t attend live? That’s okay! Registered attendees will receive a link of the recorded program.
This year, all registration will be done online using our Family Access portal. Families will complete a registration form and upload all residency documents via Skyward Family Access.
Please follow the LINK for registration guidelines.
In order to register, your child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2021.
