Dear Leigh Families, 

Thank you for attending Parent and Teacher Conferences over the last two weeks.  We truly feel we are partners with you on your child's academic and social/emotional journey.  Please continue to reach out to your child's teachers if you have any questions.  

Just a friendly reminder: please do not bring any dogs to Leigh at drop off or dismissal.  Thank you.  

Final Learning Path Survey

Please take a few minutes to complete the final learning path survey.   This survey asks you to COMMIT to one form or the other from April 6 through the end of the school year on June 7.  Complete one survey for each child.  Here is the link to the survey.

5Essentials Survey 

The State of Illinois is asking parents, students and teachers to take the 5 Essentials survey this year.  The window is open until April 1, 2021. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey at this link.

COVID-19 Reminders

If your child has contact with someone with COVID-19, tests positive for COVID-19, or lives with someone who does,  please call Nurse Dolores.  Do not send your child to school.  We all need to work together to keep COVID out of our school so we can remain open with in-person learning.  If your child is sick, he/she must receive an alternative diagnosis or negative COVID test before returning to school.  In addition, if you travel outside of Illinois you will need to quarantine before returning to in-person learning.  Please contact Nurse Dolores and she will assist you.  Do not send your child to school if he/she is sick, tests positive for COVID, has had COVID contact or has traveled outside of Illinois. 

Enjoy the beautiful weekend, 

Michele Guzik

Kindergarten Celebrates their 100th Day!

Tuesday, February 22nd found us celebrating our 100th Day of Kindergarten!  The children were very pleased that we made it to this milestone. We marked the day with a number of activities pertaining to 100. We counted to 100 by ones and tens.  We practiced identifying our numerals to 100 as well.  We also completed different challenges in 100 seconds such as seeing how many times we could write our names in the allotted time and doing various exercises to reach this numeric goal.  In addition, we created crowns to boast of our accomplishments.  Finally, we played a partner dice game to challenge one another to race to 100.  However, the highlight of the day was when our students shared their 100th Day projects that they created with the help of their families.   Their masterpieces were quite impressive and the children were most proud of seeing their counting skills in action.  Needless to say, our day was full of fun and learning.  Here’s to the next 75 days remaining in kindergarten!
