Celebrating Our Veterans

On November 11, the United States celebrates those who have served or are serving our country in the armed forces. In an effort to honor these family members, we are asking our families to send in a photograph of the person. We plan to make a photocopy of the photograph and hang it in a place of honor at our school.  Please include the name of your family member, the branch of service he/she is serving or served in and the years of service.  Our students will then learn about the dedication, honor and integrity of all service members and how they have helped us attain the freedom that we value so much. We will then have children make a Poppy Flower in honor of their service and hang them on or near the photos of our veterans.  Please plan on sending these photos into school by November 8, 2019 so we can get them copied and hung.  As always, please let us know if you have any questions by calling 847-357-5400.

Outdoor Recess

It is important for our students to have the opportunity each day to get some exercise. Therefore, we do continue to have lunch recess on a daily basis unless the wind chill goes below 0 degrees. Boots, coats, mittens/gloves are needed if your child wants to play in the snow, and we highly encourage snow pants to lessen the chance of wet pants.  If your child does not have these items, we will have them utilize the blacktop during recess. If you need support getting these items, please call our office.

Arrival and Dismissal

Just a friendly reminder, the Aldrin parking lot is closed once buses arrive.  To ensure the safety of all of our students, we ask that no cars are moving in the parking lot at this time.  If by chance you are already in the lot, you will need to wait to leave until after the buses are gone.  Also, please keep in mind that the drop off/pick up zone requires the driver to stay with his or her car.  The Schaumburg police will issue tickets if you park and leave your vehicle.  If you want to meet your child at the door, please find a place to park on one of the side streets. Finally, it is imperative that we teach our children to cross safely in the designated cross walk when arriving or leaving school grounds.  Please help us model this to our students by showing them how it is done.  Those few extra steps certainly makes a difference in the safety of the Aldrin community members.  Please pass this information on to your family members if they are transporting your child to or from school.

School Pictures

If for any reason you are unhappy with your student’s pictures we will have retakes on Thursday, November 7th; return your entire picture package to the school office prior to November 7th then we will have your child’s picture retaken. Call the school office if you have any questions.
