Leigh Weekly Tracks

September 30, 2022 

Dear Leigh School Families,

September is officially in the books.  It was a good month for the staff and the students.  September is full of new experiences: teachers, classmates, expectations, classes, etc.  The routines and expectations are established once October rolls around.   

Last week I wrote about the Norridge Schools Foundation (NSF) and the important work they do for the children in Norridge School District 80.  Please continue to support this group.  This week I would like to highlight the Norridge Parents and Teachers Association (PTA).  PTA meets on the first Tuesdays of the month at Leigh School at 7:00pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings.  The purpose of PTA is to enhance student learning in the schools.  They do good things for our district. 

Please support NSF and PTA for Norridge School District 80.  

Welcome October!  

Michele Guzik


Dear Leigh Families,

I can't believe that October is here. As soon as I hear October, I tend to think of Halloween!

This year, we are planning to bring back the Halloween parade. You may recall that last year we had to hold an indoor parade due to the weather. Hopefully, we will have clear skies this year! The PTA is also planning an evening event for Friday, October 28th, so you should hold that date on your calendar. 

I will share more details for our Halloween plans within the next week, or so. But, for now here is the general plan; 

  • Students will dismiss at 11:40am to go home, have lunch and get into costumes. 
  • Students will return at 1:30pm
  • Parade will begin at 1:45pm
  • Students will return back to classrooms for some fun activities.
    • We will not be passing out treats of any kind. We want to be able to enjoy the fun activities that will be planned, so any items that are brought in will be returned home with the student. 
  • School will dismiss at 3:05pm

Again, more specific details will be shared soon, but I wanted to get this on your calendars ahead of time!

We have been hearing some concerns about recess potentially being taken away from students. I would like to remind you that all students will receive 30 minutes of recess daily. Recess will not be taken away as a punitive consequence. An exception being only for immediate safety incidents. If you have any questions about this, you can feel free to send me an email and I will follow up with you. 

In the Weekly Tracks below, you will find information pertaining to;

  • Norridge Schools Foundation, which is currently fundraising to purchase new risers at Leigh! Please help to support the foundation by purchasing a raffle for a Macbook for just $20!
  • Our Tigers of the Week and our TOP TIGERS for the month of September! 
  • Health Requirements- please make sure this documentation is submitted ASAP!  Students will be excluded from school starting October 15th if the health requirements are not met.

September 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 September.  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:
