Good morning,

We are hopeful you had a great weekend with the children.  We have been very busy at Aldrin school.  Our 3rd through 6th in-person learners finished up ELA and Math IAR testing.  Our 5th graders have a few more tests to complete this week in the area of science.  We are so proud of how hard the children worked on these assessments.  Thanks for making sure they were well rested and nourished. 

Mark Your Calendars – Annual PTA Auction 

Please join us online Friday April 30th from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m  for the Schaumburg Township Council of PTA’s annual auction!  The funds for this auction go towards scholarships offered to current SD54 students (for summer camps) and alumni (high school seniors).  Please click below to browse the items and create your 32auctions profile in advance so you are ready to go when bidding starts.  This is one online event you will not want to miss.  

Registrations for the 2021/2022 School Year

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year opened on Monday, March 29th through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please login to review the current information and make any necessary changes. If you do not have a portal account, you should have received an email on March 13th inviting you to create one.

As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can upload through your portal or provide to the school office to complete your registration.

You are also able to pay the consumable fee for 2021-22, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal. If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2021-22 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.

Should you have any questions, please our office, 847-357-5400. Thank you for your cooperation.
