Welcome to Schiesher Elementary School
Please scroll down the page for more information and news.
Thank you to all that attended the Back to School Bash! The LEHSO and the LEF (Lisle Education Foundation) generously donated funds and time to support this fantastic event. When we started brainstorming about the event back in the early spring of last year, we truly didn’t know what to expect. Saturday’s weather helped bring out over 100 families from SES and Tate Woods. We are so thrilled that so many of our staff members joined us for a great time. Having the event after only a few days of school provided an opportunity for new acquaintances to meet parents and forge new friendships. Each month we will provide an activity that focuses on Every Thing On It, by Shel Silverstein.
As the first day of school has come and gone, Schiesher Elementary is slowly becoming our home again for the next 9 months. It has been a wonderful beginning! You sent us your best and we are excited about the learning and growing ahead of us with your children. During the first few days our students participated in the PAWS LAWS Shuffle (review of all school expectations) and our safety drills. Students and teachers are getting to know one another and settling into the daily routines. We will have been in school for two and a half weeks before Labor Day. So when students return they will already be in a well-established school routine.
As we “ROAR” into September teachers and staff are working diligently to launch into quality teaching in our Reading and Writing Units of Study. Our students will engage in hands-on mathematical experiences learning to understand math in a conceptual way in order to prepare for the application of concepts. Our goal in September is to create an environment where kids can grow in their independence and problem solving abilities. All too often we jump in and attempt to rescue children at the first sign of a struggle or frustration. We need to provide them opportunities to experience small struggles so they will be better equipped to handle the big ones. The teachers will be building students’ self-confidence in order for them to think for themselves and anticipate what will be frustrating so they may use strategies and coping mechanisms along the way. We are anticipating a year filled with many successes for our Schiesher Lions. Please remember that your child’s education is a partnership and you are welcome at Schiesher Elementary. Communication and collaboration are key ingredients to your child’s success. Do not hesitate to call if you have questions or concerns during the year. The Parent/Student Handbook and teacher websites have a wealth of information.
As stated earlier, it’s been a fantastic start to the school year, and I look forward to a great year! I also look forward to working with you in partnership as we embark on your child’s educational journey!
