On behalf of the entire Enders staff, we would like to wish all of our families a happy and safe summer break! Thank you to everyone for being a partner with us in your child’s education. For those of you leaving the Enders Community, we wish you all the best. Best of luck to all of our 6th graders who are moving on to Junior High, we know you are all ready for this next chapter in your lives.
Mark your calendars for Back to School Night on Thursday, August 15, 5:00 – 6:30. A reminder will be mailed home at the beginning of August.
The final report card for your child is now available online in the District 54 Parent Portal. Click here to log into your account and then click on Report Card on the left hand side of your screen.
We hope that all families will check the report cards and use the information to celebrate with their children their academic successes for this school year and to discuss possible goals for next year. I am very proud of the growth our students have achieved this year.

Join us for our first Maker Faire on Monday, June 3rd. The students have been so busy each week during LRC creating their superhero themed projects to showcase for parents, teachers and all of the students! Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of make and take projects and STEM Challenges. It’s going to be a way for our students to showcase their “superpowers!”

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 email@example.com.
