This first week of school was a huge success and a great indication for what lies ahead for this school year. Our students were hard at work reviewing expectations and procedures and diving right into core academics. We are so excited to welcome our kindergarteners to school tomorrow and look forward to having them with us all day! Please read the important information below regarding some upcoming events in the Muir Community.
Schaumburg Parent University District 54 is excited to once again offer our families the Schaumburg Parent University (SPU). The Parent University is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. We offer two types of classes – Practical Parenting for adults only and Time Together, where families learn and play together. Most classes are free and childcare is provided. Our first session will be Family Literacy Night on Sept. 14. Click on the attachments for more information about the rest of the fall classes or visit our website at http://sd54.org/spu. Registration information is also found at this website.
Run to Read
District 54 is hosting its 11th annual Run to Read, which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015 at Dirksen Elementary School in Schaumburg. The day includes 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children at 8 a.m., a 5K run at 8:45 a.m. and a 1-mile family walk at 9 a.m. Although you can register at any time, even the morning of the race, you will save $5 and be guaranteed a T-shirt in the size you requested if you register by Sept. 4. The Run to Read is an awesome opportunity to promote healthy living by encouraging your children to exercise, or even better, by joining them on the walk or run. The event also supports our goal of collecting 1,000 children’s books for every classroom in District 54. To register online, visit http://sd54.org/runtoread.
