Dear Leigh Families, 

Happy Mother's Day to all of our beautiful mothers!  Thank you for sharing your children with us at Leigh School.  

Thank you to PTA and all of our parents for the gifts, cards, and treats for our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week!  PTA provided a treat for the teachers everyday and ended the week with special awards, baskets, and gift cards.   To quote Sidney Hook "Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques.  The teacher is the head of the educational system".  Thank you for appreciating our teachers last week and every day.  

I hope you are enjoying the new gourmet Gorilla lunch program.  I was in the lunchroom this past week and all of the students agreed the food was good.  Please note: due to Memorial Day weekend they will need all orders for the week of May 31-June 3 placed on the website by Wednesday, May 19.  

Leigh School raised for $7500 for the American Heart Association during the past month.  Mrs. Zywiciel's fourth grade class had the highest number of registrations so they had front seat views when Mr. Balatsos was slimmed for this worthy cause.  Please see the details and pictures on my Classroom Dojo page.  Thank you, Mr. Balatsos and Mr. Woodward for organizing this event.  Bravo.  

The Leigh School ABC Countdown is in full swing.  It was wonderful last week to see so many students participating.  This week we will celebrate F-J with lot of fun activities.  Let's enjoy the last few weeks of this crazy school year together.  

District 80 Summer School

Summer school registration opened last week.  The program runs from June 9th to June 29th at Leigh School from 8:00am to 12:00pm.  The cost of the program for all 15 days is $80.00.  If a child attends 80% of the time, the $80.00 will be refunded.  We are asking for you to pay by check so we can simply hand back your check on the last day.  Checks can be sent with your child or dropped off at the Leigh Office. 

Summer School is open to all District 80 students who will be in First - Eighth grade during the 2021-22 school year.  On the registration form please indicate the grade your child will be in during the 21-22 year.   Here is the registration link:  Click here.

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 to an orange place or internationally.

Celebrate Leigh Tigers!

April Top Tigers

A big Tiger Pride salute goes out to the following students who are being honored as our Top Tigers for the month of January.  Each month, homeroom teachers are invited to select one student who truly has exemplified what it means to be a Leigh School Tiger.  These students are celebrated with a nomination form highlighting their efforts completed by their teachers, which are then shared with the nominee’s classmates. A special certificate is presented to the Top Tigers and their photos are proudly displayed outside of their classrooms.  Congratulations to this month’s honorees:
