Book Fair and Parent Conferences

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.

District 54 schools closed Monday, Jan. 28

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.

Battle of the Books 2019 Parent Letter


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Enders-Salk is excited to inform you that each student will be participating in Battle of the Books this year.  Please refer to the frequently asked question below to fill you in on the details.  If you still have any questions, feel free to contact Katie Montalbano at

 What Is “Battle of the Books?”

Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read great books and have fun while competing with peers.

How Does A Student Participate?

Each student is placed on a team in their classroom.  The team then divides up the books on their list and each student is responsible for reading that book, and sharing their findings with the other team members. Students may count “books” they have read before. They should keep a summary so they can review this information before their “Battle.” Feel free to read as many books as you would like with your child, but each participant is only responsible for reading the books the team decides. Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade teachers read the books aloud to the students. 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th are expected to read them independently or with an adult.

Where Do The Students Get The Books?

The Enders-Salk PTA graciously has purchased a set of each battle book for each classroom.  Students can check them out through their teachers. You can also check them out at the Schaumburg Library!

 When Do The Students Read The Books?

START NOW! The school battles will not be held until April.  Therefore, students will have plenty of time to read the books during the school year.

What Is The “Battle?”

The students have the opportunity to be involved in 3 battles. During each battle, the student will be with their assigned team and answering questions together as a team using a game show device called Kahoot, which is internet based. The answers are always the title of the book, and extra points are earned for knowing the author. The winners of each battle will advance to the next battle.

When Are The Battles?

A schedule will go home in March with the exact dates of the battles. The battles will be in April and May.

Thank you,

Mrs. Montalbano
