Principal’s Message from February 22, 2019

Lions,

Celebrate Reading and Writing was a big success!  It was so fun to see the students share their piece of writing with their families!  The students were so proud of the award they wore that evening to show their accomplishment.  Congratulations Lakeview students!

Thank you to the many families who attended Student-Led Conferences last week. It was wonderful to see our students taking ownership of their learning, sharing what they are proud of, and showing examples of their hard work. You are an important partner in your child’s education, and we are grateful for the support and encouragement you give at home!

We are very excited to announce that March will be designated Happiness Month across District 54! Lakeview is ready to make this our best month yet. According to Shawn Achor, the author of The Happiness Advantage, “When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. Staff and students will be participating in various activities to promote both individual, classroom and building Happiness. During the month, you may notice your students using language such as, “being orange” or “positive habits.”  Make sure you ask them about their day.  We look forward to an exciting month ahead!

Principal’s Message for February 8th, 2019

Lions,

We have had a great week!  As we have been continuing our 21 day challenge with the students, we focused on meditation this past week.  Students learned that a few minutes of meditation a day quiets our minds, raise levels of happiness and lowers stress.

A highlight of the week was spending some time in music class with these 6th grade students.  They were embracing learning how to play the ukuleles.  I was amazed on how engaged and determined these students were.  It was an awesome lesson!    

Student-Led Conferences (February 14th and 15th)

Student-Led Conferences are coming next week.  They are on February 14th and 15th.  You should have received your conference invite and have returned it back to school confirming you can attend.  If you have NOT confirmed, please do so ASAP.  We are expecting every student to participate in this conference with his or her parents.  This conference involves your child as the leader showing what he/she has learned and taking the initiative to reflect on his/her performance to set new academic and social goals with you.  There will be more than one family in the room at the same time.  The classroom teacher will move around the room and meet with each family group for a short time to make comments and answer questions.  Each family has 30 minutes allocated for the conference time.

We believe this is a great opportunity for your child to explain their learning.  You can participate by giving them praise for their efforts and discuss opportunities for growth.  We are certain that you will see tremendous progress as you look through your child’s portfolio.

Please remember, you always have the option to talk to your child’s teacher throughout the year.  If this conference does not meet your needs, please feel free to set up another time to talk to the classroom teacher.  We are always happy to discuss your child’s progress with you anytime throughout the school year.

Book Fair

We will have the book fair happening in the gym from 12-8 during conferences on Feb. 14th.  Please stop in and support our PTA by purchasing a new book.

Valentine’s Day

This year our PTA will be hosting Valentine’s Day parties for grades K-3 AND hosting an assembly for grades 4-6.  If you decide to send in valentines for your child to pass out to classmates, please do NOT send any edible items with the valentines.  If you want to send something to pass out with your child’s valentines, you can send any non-edible item such as pencils, erasers, etc.

Tie Dye

If you did not get a chance to send in the 100% cotton, white shirt and $1.00 for an upcoming all school tie dye activity, please do so by Feb. 13th.  Thanks!

As you have been notified from the district there will be NO school, Wednesday Jan. 30th AND Thursday, Jan. 31st due to the weather moving into the Chicagoland area.  Please be safe these next few days and we will see everyone back in school on Friday, Feb. 1st.

Last week we had an all school assembly to kick off the 21 Day Challenge.  During this assembly, our staff acted out a parable called The Orange Frog.  This parable is based on positive psychology and focuses on creating a positive environment.  The 21 Day Challenge is embedding positive tactics into our everyday life.  We have been working on Acts of Kindness.  The students have done a great job spreading random acts of kindness across Lakeview School.

Tie Dye

A letter went home asking each family to send in a 100% cotton, white shirt for an upcoming all school tie dye activity.  Please send $1.00 along with the shirt to help offset the cost of the tie dye materials.  We are also taking donations of extra white shirts.  Thank you!

Schools Closed Jan. 30-31; after-school activities cancelled today

Dear District 54 community,

Due to the dangerously cold wind chill, District 54 is cancelling all after-school and evening activities today, January 29. This does not include the after-school childcare programs at our schools run by the park districts and YMCA.

In addition, District 54 schools and the Rafferty Center will be closed on Wednesday, January 30 and Thursday, January 31. After-school and evening activities are also cancelled on January 30 and 31, including the Open Enrollment Fair. When schools are closed for a full day, the child care programs are also cancelled at our schools. People interested in open enrollment schools for their children, click here to view the list of school visitation dates and times.

District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control, such as extreme weather, sometimes dictate that we close. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 15,000 students we serve and our employees can get to school safely whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning until noon Thursday, which calls for wind chill values as low as -55.

Thank you for your understanding and support. For more information about our notification procedures and a link to our Severe Cold Weather Response Plan, you can visit https://sd54.org/schoolcancellations.

Childcare Options

  • The Campanelli YMCA, 300 W. Wise Road, Schaumburg, will offer a drop-in childcare program for students in kindergarten through sixth grade on THURSDAY ONLY. The YMCA will be closed on Wednesday. For Thursday – the cost is $40 per child for YMCA members and $45 for nonmembers. Send your child with a lunch and a drink.

Please update your calendars.  As of today, the last day of school will be on May 31, 2019, not May 30, 2019.  The date has changed because of the weather day we had on November 26, 2018.  If we were to have any other days off due to bad weather, the last day of school would change again, we will keep you updated.

Is My Child Too Sick To Go To School?

A common dilemma that parents face is “when should I keep my child home from school?”  It’s not easy as parents more and more today are juggling the responsibilities of family and work.   Here are some guidelines to follow.

Know the difference between a cold and the flu:

  • Flu is a serious illness and symptoms include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, or muscle aches.  With the flu, symptoms come on very quickly. It is advised to contact the doctor if these symptoms are present. An antiviral medication may be prescribed.
  • Symptoms of a common cold include stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, and hacking cough.  Often, cold symptoms come on gradually.,  Although the common cold is usually not serious, if symptoms are severe, it is a good idea to keep your child home to rest, rather than spread the cold to other children at school.

Keep your child home from school if:

  • He has a fever. This means a temperature 100 degrees or higher.
  • She has vomited.   Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods
  • He has diarrhea.  Encourage good hand washing to prevent the spread to other family members. Keep your child home until they are symptom free for 24 hours and able to tolerate solid foods.
  • She is coughing frequently or having any sort of breathing trouble.
  • He has a rash that is spreading.  Check with your child’s doctor to see if it is contagious before sending your child back to school.

In order to help prevent the spread of illness in school, students with a fever 100 degrees or more may not return to school until they are fever free for 24 hrs without the use of fever reducing medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. GOOD HANDWASHING IS THE NUMBER ONE PREVENTION.
