Kenneth Young Center Fundraiser, April 22-26

The Aldrin staff would like to invite families to join us in supporting the Kenneth Young Center with a fundraiser the week of April 22nd-26th in recognition of the assistance that they provide to our students.  The Kenneth Young Center is a non- profit agency located in Schaumburg, Elk Grove Village, and Mount Prospect that provides services including counseling, assessment, and support groups to community members.  Throughout the years, this agency has helped many of our Aldrin families.  As a result, our school is looking to give back in appreciation.

If you would like to join us in supporting the Kenneth Young Center during April 22-26, please send one of the following to school with your child:

  • A check written to Aldrin Elementary School or
  • Cash in an envelope marked Kenneth Young Center

We will combine all checks and cash received into a single check for donation to the Kenneth Young Center.

Official Last Day of School

Due to the number of severe weather days when school was cancelled this year, the District 54 School Board officially set June 6, 2019 as the last day of school. This will be a half-day of school to make up for the half-day missed when school was cancelled Jan. 30. With that said, our students will be dismissed for the summer at 11:40 a.m. on June 6, 2019.

Notes of Encouragement

This weekend you received a letter from us asking for your help.  We are hoping to have every family write a quick note to each of their children letting them know how proud you are of them for their hard work and dedication this school year. Once you are done with the letter, we ask that you send it to school in a sealed envelope so we can deliver them all on the same day.  If you have any questions or you need a new notecard, please give our offices a call at 847-357-5400.

Principal’s Message 3.22.2019

Good afternoon,

Wow… it’s been an amazing month of happiness at Aldrin School.  We have culminated the month today with a day dedicated to all things happy.  The morning began with balloons.  I don’t know about you, but balloons seem to make everyone at Aldrin smile.  We also had an opportunity to do a fun project with our community classrooms.  The kids loved the activity and they will undoubtedly share their creations.  This afternoon started with an all school assembly to reflect on the activities we did this month.  Below is a visual to get you in the mood of the day.  We literally threw happiness around like confetti.   Finally, the day ended with our annual “Spring Fling” party hosted by the Aldrin PTA room parents. Thanks to all the room parents who made this event so spectacular.  It was truly an amazing day at Aldrin.

Have a fabulous week with your children!


Mary Botterman and Kari Frederick
