Interested in getting more involved in PTA next year?
Well you are in luck, because we have several committees open for the 2019-2020 school year! Please see the basic information on these committees below. If you are interested, please contact Eileen Morris at email@example.com.
Dine and Donate
If you’re interested in a committee that doesn’t involve a huge time commitment, the Dine & Donate committee would be great for you! Most of the work can be done from home. Dine & Donate events are spread throughout the school year.
Responsibilities include contacting various restaurants and setting up Dine & Donate events. Events should be coordinated accordingly with the school calendar. Also, advertise the event using different resources distributing flyers, PTA newsletter, and social media. After the event makes sure the PTA receives the proper payment. If you’re looking for an easy way to help your PTA, this committee would be great for you!
This committee sells gift cards through Great Lakes Scrip and receives a portion of the sales back to PTA. This is generally done once yearly before the holiday break. Duties include copying and distributing order forms, collating and placing the orders, and distributing the cards once they have been received.
Schaumburg Township Council of PTA’s Auction
The Schaumburg Township Council of PTA’s has a dinner and silent/live auction event each Spring to raise money for the scholarship fund. Each PTA in the council is responsible for donating at least five baskets. Duties of the Enders-Salk auction chair are soliciting donations and putting them together into baskets. Most of the work for this committee occurs in January and February and all of it can be done from home.
Reflections Coordinate National PTA Reflections Art Competition at Enders- Salk
This is a fall event that requires distributing informational materials (usually starting at Back to School Night), hosting a parent information meeting in September and a Finishing Workshop in October. Projects must be photographed, logged and submitted to the STC, which generally takes an additional hour. Training is offered at fall PTA training nights and there is an abundance of information on the Illinois PTA and National PTA websites.
Please mark your calendars because yearbooks are coming! Yearbooks will be sold on May 15th and May 16th during lunch. The price for a yearbook will be $18.00. We will accept cash, check or money orders made out to the Enders-Salk PTA.
They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last. (There will be no preorders).
Join us for a fun night at Baldy Bash 2019 on Wednesday, April 10th from 5:00-6:30 pm! Our school’s been transformed into CAMP READ-A-LOT, a reading campground. We’re inviting your family to a night of camping style fun as we celebrate reading and writing. You will have the opportunity to read your child’s celebrate reading and writing book, complete exciting literacy activities as a family, and much more! Hope to see you there.
Thank you to our amazing PTA for organizing our Science Fair this year. Great job to all of the students that participated.
As part of its commitment to life-long learning, the Schaumburg Township Council of PTA’s (STC) offers scholarships for summer programs/camps to District 54 students currently in Kindergarten through 7th grade who wish to broaden their education, talents, and experiences.
Applicants must have a parent/guardian that is a current PTA member. Click on the documents to apply. It’s hard to believe , but summer will be here before we know it.
If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Lechuga at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enders Fest Fun Fair is Friday, March 1st from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm. Volunteer flyers have gone home in backpacks and ticket pre-order forms will be coming home in mid-February. We need many volunteers to make this a fun event for our children. If you are able to help please return the volunteer form or contact me directly at email@example.com or call 847-839-3206.
The Scholastic Book Fair will be open all day on Thursday, February 14th from 9:00 am- 8:00 pm upstairs in the LRC. Please remember that there is a half day of school on Thursday, February 14th at 11:40 am for Parent Conferences. There will be NO SCHOOL on Friday for parent conferences along with NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 18th for President’s Day.
All District 54 schools will be closed on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019, due to the weather. All after-school and evening activities are cancelled as well.
The decision to close school is not one we make lightly. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 15,000 students we serve can get to school safely (whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car).
District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control (such as extreme weather) sometimes dictate that we close.
Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.
For more information about our notification procedures and a link to our Severe Cold Weather Response Plan, you can visit https://sd54.org/schoolcancellations.
Due to the current weather conditions, all after school and night activities are canceled today. This includes the 5th and 6th grade Jazz Band Concert at Keller Jr. High tonight. All students will be sent home at 3:00 today. If there is a change to your transportation, please contact the school office.
