Dear MacArthur Community,
We are looking forward to seeing many of you tonight at the “Fiesta Dance” sponsored by our PTA. Entry for MacArthur families is free with food and drinks for sale. There will be a DJ and dancing fun for the entire family. The dance is at Eisenhower Junior High from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
PARCC Dates: Grades 3-6 will be taking the end of the year PARCC test beginning next week. Please try to have your child(ren) present if at all possible.
Last Day of School: As you know, District 54 canceled school five days during the winter months due to the cold weather and/or snow. Whenever we cancel school, we add a day to the end of our school calendar. Therefore the last day of school is Friday, June 12. Please note that this is also the last day of school for kindergarten students.
Schaumburg Parent University – May Classes: Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) 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. There are two evening programs scheduled for May:
•Merengue Away. This dance class is for children in early childhood through sixth grade and their parents. It will be from 6 to 7 p.m. May 5 at Stevenson School.
•Concussions: Risks and Intervention. Jill Dorflinger, a pediatric neuropsychologist for Alexian Brothers, will discuss typical brain development and the best interventions if your child suffers a concussion. This class for parents only will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Rafferty Administration Center.
If you are interested in attending these events, please visit the Schaumburg Parent University website to register. Childcare will be available.
Have a great weekend!
Danette and Michelle
