“A teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love, and patiently nurtures their growth to produce tomorrow’s dreams.” ~Unknown
To all of the educators at the Early Childhood Center and to all of our kindergarten teachers, today is the day you have been waiting for. Smiling faces to enter your classrooms for the first time this year! Well, maybe some of those faces won’t be smiling, but we know you are going to do be the one who brings sunshine to your classrooms.
Looking for some opportunities to help out District 54? The Schaumburg District 54 Education Foundation is looking for volunteers to help out with Septemberfest on Saturday, September 1st, through Monday, September 3rd. They are looking for people to help with the parking at Collins school on Saturday and Sunday of that weekend, as well as volunteers to help with the Riccardo’s food tent on Monday. If you are at all interested, contact Donna Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org), the foundation secretary to see what time slots are still available. I’ll be at the food tent Monday afternoon so stop by and say hi!
Another way you can help support district 54 is volunteering at Run to Read. This event is just a little less than a month away, Sunday, September 23rd. District 54 is always looking for volunteers to help out in various capacities that day. Check your email from Terri McHugh from last week to sign up. Or you could always sign up to run the 5K or participate in the family walk. Prices to up by $5 this Friday so register today! Join so of our SEA members who will be running and wearing our SEA shirts.
Speaking of SEA shirts, this year we would like to designate Tuesdays as “Better Together Tuesdays”. Every Tuesday, we would like for you to wear your SEA shirts. What? You don’t have an SEA shirt to wear? No worries, we now have an online link to order NEW SEA spirit wear: http://coachsassistant.gtmsportswear.com/d54so. The access code is: SEASEA. Make sure you type the code in all caps. Orders are due by September 28th. Your order will be shipped to us and then we will deliver them to by the end of October. Thank you to Kelly O’Reilly for organizing this for us.
Tomorrow, “Better Together Tuesday”, tweet a picture of you and any of your colleagues sporting your SEA shirts or just showing the power of collaboration in our district. Use the hashtags #BetterTogether #D54SEA.
I hope you have an amazing week with your students and staff. Take a moment to thank a colleague for the ways in which they have helped you start this year off right!
