Our next dine & donate will be on February 15th at Chuck E. Cheese from 12:00 noon-9:00pm. It’s a half day, so make sure to stop by for lunch or dinner and support your PTA!
Enders-Salk PTA is piloting a new web-based communications tool called MemberHub. This new system will enable us to increase communication and provide the best resources and tools for our families and volunteers. We will still have blurbs of information posted on the school website but are going to start using MemberHub to post our full newsletter. If things go well we hope to use it for more things in the future such as calendar organization with automated event reminders, volunteer sign ups, and receiving online payments for membership dues and other items.
Start by joining the Enders-Salk MemberHub
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming during conferences! Look and buy day will be on Wednesday, February 14th from 9:00am-2:30pm and also all day on Thursday, February 15th from 9:00am-8:00pm. Come and visit the book fair upstairs in the LRC. If you would like to volunteer to help, please email Mrs. Montalbano at email@example.com.
District 54 will hold kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018. Registration will take place from 9 to 11 a.m., 1 to 2:30 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at all elementary schools. Parents should go to their neighborhood school to register their child, even if they are applying to attend a school other than their neighborhood school. (Lincoln Prairie is not a neighborhood school). If your child is currently enrolled at the District 54 Early Learning Center and will be going to kindergarten next year you do not need to register your child at this time. District 54 offers a free full-day kindergarten program at all of our elementary schools, although options are available for students to attend a half-day program.
A child whose fifth birthday falls on or before Sept. 1, 2018 is eligible to enroll in kindergarten in 2018. District 54 follows the Illinois regulations and doesn’t admit students whose birth date is after Sept. 1.
