Welcome to Schiesher Elementary School

Dear Schiesher Families,
We are coming to the end of an incredible, and incredibly busy school year at Schiesher. We are so proud to be your partners in your child’s educational journey. Our students and families make coming to work such a pleasure for all who enter the halls of Schiesher School. The close partnership between home and school is just one of the exceptional strengths at Schiesher Elementary School. Whether it is through attendance at conferences and parent nights, events, volunteering, encouraging support through homework and studies, providing a morning wake-up call or serve as a daily taxi service we know that your efforts and encouragement have contributed to their success. Thank you for sustaining the strong practice of supportive interactions with our staff during the 2015-2016 school year!
In our last newsletter of the year I’m sharing something thoughts I’ve learned along the way as a parent and an educator.
You can’t love your children too much, nor can you express your love too often.
Encourage our children to advocate for themselves; give them a voice in decision making when the stakes are low so they’ll be comfortable asserting their opinions when the stakes get higher.
Be aware that what you do is more powerful than what you say.
Value each child’s unique gifts and interests even if they are different than your own.
Be courageous and be your own person.
Celebrate failure! We stretch, grow, and are challenged when we don’t succeed the first time.
These certainly aren’t the be-all and end-all guidelines of parenting; rather these are some of the truisms that I share with my three children throughout their lives.
As many of you may know, I am not returning to my position at Schiesher in the fall. Life is taking me into a new direction and I am excited to start my new adventures. I have thoroughly enjoyed my last four years serving as the principal of Schiesher Elementary School. I truly have appreciated the relationships that have built and will cherish those as I move on to the next chapter. Lisle is an outstanding community to raise a family. Our families and students are second to none. The staff is truly dedicated to providing the best education for your children. Please know when they enter our halls each and every day they are loved and cherished as if they were our own.
As we draw the curtains on another year at Schiesher Elementary, let us not forget learning is an every moment of the day experience. While school officially ends on May 25, each of us will continue to learn on a daily basis. I wish you a very safe and exciting summer. Our staff hopes that you and your children enjoy a summer that is filled with creativity, reflection, and above all moments to relax and rejuvenate.
