District 35 will be participating in a collection which will benefit: Families Helping Families Chicagoland. (FHFC) is a charity whose mission is to better our community by providing meaningful opportunities for families to support local families in need! The collection includes gently used school supplies including pencils, scissors, glue sticks, erasers, crayons, markers, paper, rulers, etc. Please contact your child’s homeroom/advisor by June 1st if you would like to opt out of this collection.
District 35 presents One Book, One District. All staff and parents are invited to participate in reading Mindset, by Dr. Carol Dweck. This initiative serves to build a common understanding of the principles of growth versus fixed mindset. In addition, District 35 will continue to build an awareness of brain development and neuroplasticity and opportunities to link to learning across our classrooms. Additional parent engagement options will be shared for the 2017-2018 school year. If you would like to order a book through District 35, please click here for the order form. All orders are due to the school office by May 19th. We look forward to learning together!
