Morning! There is a great deal going on in the district as we begin to close down the school year. The next few SEAsides could be lengthy but please stay with me!
- Next week is Teacher Appreciation with Tuesday being National Teacher Day. Don’t forget to thank your school nurse on Wednesday which is National School Nurse Day.
- Renewal information went out to all district employees this past week from Diana Peters.
- Linda Stolt, a retired teacher from Schaumburg and current president of the IEA-Retired Northwest Suburban chapter, has been selected by the Illinois Education Association as this year’s recipient of the Mary Lou and Keith Hauge Retiree of the Year Award. Stolt was recognized for the award on Thursday in front of some 1,200 association delegates, guests and state dignitaries at the IEA’s annual Representative Assembly in Rosemont.
- I wanted to let you know about a wonderful opportunity the Illinois Education Association Palatine Office is offering next month. The IEA Regions 34, 35 (Schaumburg), 42, 43, 64 and High School District 214 cordially invite you to a screening of the movie PAPER TIGERS. This event is free to those interested in attending.
Paper Tigers is an intimate look into the lives of selected students at Lincoln High School, an alternative school that specializes in educating traumatized youth. Set amidst the rural community of Walla Walla, Wash., the film intimately examines the inspiring promise of trauma informed communities – a movement that is showing great promise in healing youth struggling with the dark legacy of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).
I personally invite you to attend this powerful event! You can watch the trailer and learn more about the film at PaperTigersMovie.com I have attached an invitational flier and encourage you to invite other administrators, community leaders and parents.
Thanks for reading and staying with me through the year. I hope these messages have been helpful in some way J
PS – Did you know that a crocodile cannot stick his tongue out?
