When your child is absent from school, please phone the school attendance line 630-493-8199. This is available 24 hours a day. You must report the absence and the reason for the absence. Please make every effort to place the call by 9AM the day of the absence. We kindly thank you for your cooperation. 



Reminders/Important Information:

    •  WHAT ARE RAINBOW WORDS?  Rainbow Words is our classroom sight word incentive program.  Please practice the list your child is working on and contact me via email or note when your child is ready to read his/her current list to me.  Once your child can read through his/her color with no mistakes, he/she gets his/her name on our rainbow chart and moves on to practicing the next color.  
    • ERROR ON THE RAINBOW WORDS LIST:  The list says "white" words however we do not have white on our incentive board.  Use the "white" list when your child is on the "gray" words.  
    • Have you checked out Reading a-z?  Go to http://www.raz-kids.com/main/Login  so your child can read books online at his/her level!  Please be sure to visit the site at least 2 times a week and work with your child. 
    • March was the last month for the Pizza Hut Book It Program!  Please continue to read to and with your child daily!  Have your child read to you as well and show you the different strategies we work on to figure out words we do not know!
    • If you are interested in  being a "Mystery Reader" in our class please e-mail or call me to let me know!  We can schedule a time for you to come in and surprise your child!

Homework Information/Guidelines:

  • Nightly Homework:  Reading is such a special and important thing to do with your child.  Please read together every night!  Reading aloud to your child and discussing the book you are reading should be relaxing and fun!  Enjoy this special time with your child!


  • In the beginning of the school year, special assignments will be given from time to time.  A note will be included in your child's take-home folder explaining when the special work will need to be returned.


  • Beginning the first week of OCTOBER, an official homework packet will be sent home.  More information will come home soon regarding these homework packets.
