Dear Leigh Tigers, 

 

Thank you to everyone who came to support our very talented Leigh Tigers at this year’s talent show. We had so many talents showcased this year! Musical acts, dancing, sports, games, cheering, gymnastics! What a talented group of tigers! Thank you so much to Ms. Kalkirtz for all of her hard work to get our students ready for the great show and to all of the teachers for helping make the night go so smoothly.

As we are preparing the tracks to be sent, a group of PTA volunteers are setting up for tonight’s Father/Daughter Dance! We hope to see many of you here at Leigh tonight when the doors open up at 6:30pm. As a reminder, this is an event planned by the PTA and they did request all registration forms to be turned in by April 29th. While the PTA was flexible and able to accommodate some of the late requests that came in, they were not able to honor requests that came too close to the date of the event due to different orders that needed to be placed ahead of time for the event. Thank you for your understanding and thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible! 

  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. We will be celebrating our March and April Top Tigers with a pizza party/lunch during their regular lunch time on Tuesday, May 24th. 

Over the course of the next two weeks, all students will have their last PAWMart visit of the school year. PAWMart is our school store where students can trade in the “paws” that they earn everyday to reward their positive behavior for an item of their choice (based on the number of paws that they have earned). 

On Thursday, May 26th the Norridge Park District will be hosting an Enrichment Program Showcase in the Leigh Gym from 4:00pm until 5:30pm. This showcase will be the culmination of the enrichment programs that were offered this school year. We are excited to see what our Tigers have been up to after school!

Finally, a reminder that there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, May 27th. This is a Teacher Institute Day and our teachers will be participating in professional learning sessions and beginning preparations for next school year- can you believe it is that time already?

Enjoy your weekend!

Sincerely, 

Dr. Sean Rabiola, Principal

Mrs. Sarah Mysel, Assistant Principal

    Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Month: Fair and Equal  
 
 
A typical refrain heard from elementary school students is, “That’s not fair!” Whether in response to sharing materials, games, or how much time a caregiver or teacher spends with each child, their attachment to fairness can present a challenge.
 
It can be beneficial to talk to kids about the differences between fairness and equality. Fairness means treating people according to their needs. This does not always mean it will be equal. Equality means treating everyone exactly the same. Understanding fairness and equality goes hand-in-hand with increasing students’ tolerance and appreciation for diverse learners. If children can distinguish between fair and equal, they're noticing how privilege impacts them and their peers.
 
Understanding fairness helps children practice empathy. When we understand what others need and perhaps what we don’t, we recognize our differences and think a little beyond ourselves. We get to step into someone else’s shoes for a moment and consider their experiences.
