Hello Fairview Families!
It was nice seeing so many of you at Curriculum Night last evening! Thanks to all of you who were able to be here. Below is a link for the first Falcon Flyer of the year, along with fliers for Box Tops for Education and two upcoming Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) classes.
Parking Lot Procedures
We put safety first arrival and dismissal times, so please keep in mind that the parking lot is closed from 8:25-8:50a.m. and 2:50-3:15p.m. The bus turnaround will be blocked in the morning as cars should not enter this area. If you drop off your child, please park on the street and have your child cross with the crossing guard, or if you are tardy, then park in a designated parking space and walk your child into the building. Cars should not make three-point turns on Arizona Blvd. or turn around in the east driveway or private driveways around the school.
Schaumburg Parent University
District 54 is excited to once again offer our families the Schaumburg Parent University (SPU). The Parent University 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. We offer two types of classes – Practical Parenting for adults only and Time Together, where families learn and play together. Most classes are free and childcare is provided.
This year we have already scheduled parenting classes about Erin’s Law on September 30 and Internet safety on October 7, as well as Time Together STEM projects on September 16 and art projects on October 22. Before we plan the rest of the classes for this school year, we would like to hear from you. What classes would you be interested in taking? How would you prefer to learn about SPU? Please take this quick survey (7 questions)at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1767964/Schaumburg-Parent-University-Surveyso that the Schaumburg Parent University can meet the needs of our community. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit our website at http://sd54.org/spu.
