December 2016

Dear Schiesher Families,

As we say goodbye to 2016 in a couple of weeks, I hope that it has been filled with lasting memories that you can take with you into 2017.  As you spend time with your children over break, I would encourage you to try some activities below! 


*Enjoy reading a book together or have a family reading time-There are many great books for the whole family!

*Have fun cooking or baking-Students can help with measuring which is a great way to reinforce math skills.

*Have family game night-Many board games and/or card games involve numerous math and reading skills.


Winter Weather

The weather is getting colder, and snow will be here before we know it!   Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately to go outside for recess.  If students want to play in the snow, they must have snow pants and boots along with their coat, hat and gloves/mittens.  If students are not dressed appropriately, they will need to stay in the shoveled areas.  Please let us know if you are in need of any outdoor winter clothing for your child as we can help with that.

Bluestem Books

All 3rd-5th grade students participated in the Bluestem Kick-off Presentation in our LRC.  The students got to hear book recommendations from all 20 of the Bluestem nominated books presented by their classroom teachers and other staff members.  If a student reads 4 or more books, they will be able to vote in February for the book to receive the Bluestem award.  Click here for the list of books to read or go to our Schiesher LRC website and the list can be found under book lists.

Lost and Found

We still have some items in our Lost and Found.  If your child is missing anything, please feel free to come on in and look to see if it has been found.  All items not claimed by winter break will be donated.


If you haven’t done so yet, like Schiesher Elementary on Facebook! We share upcoming events and celebrations. 

5Essentials Survey

Teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. You should have received an email from the District regarding the 5Essentials Survey. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.  Link for parents to take the survey: The survey will be open until January 16, 2017. 


On behalf of the entire Schiesher staff, we wish you all a wonderful fun-filled break and a Happy New Year! 


Kind regards,


Melissa Payne
