|Girls Volleyball and Wrestling seasons are coming!
Girls volleyball and wrestling seasons begin right after winter break! Any student trying out for volleyball or wishing to take part in wrestling must have an approved sports physical on file with the nurse prior to being able to participate. Forms will be posted on Eisenhower website next week.
After winter break, Eisenhower will recommit to our practices that support our students’ academic and social emotional needs. We will be utilizing The Energy Bus to provide our students consistent language and concepts that align to the PBIS, SEL and Happiness structures already in place. Our students will focus on: Creating a Positive Vision, Fuel Your Ride with Positive Energy, No Bullies Allowed, Love Your Passengers and Enjoy the Ride. We will come together as a school to unite around these five areas during ADVOCACY lessons during the month of January.
Attendance: If your child is staying home, please make sure to call our school office by 8:00 am. Please call 847-357- 5502. Students who are not called in are marked unexcused.
A big thank you to all of our volunteers that have helped with nacho day and hot lunch the first half of the year. We look forward to seeing you all in January with nacho day back on January 9th and hot lunch on January 27th. You can still order our next hot lunch on our website for our January Hot Lunch date until January 19th. Stay tuned for Hot Lunch dates for February-May, coming out after break. Although, if you check out our website, you’ll see it there already!
Looking to help in 2023?
The Ike PTA has many opportunities for parents to get involved this school year. Do you have kids participating in upcoming winter sports? We’d love to have your help selling concessions! Do you have one free Monday open a month to help serve nachos? Would you like to run a gift card fundraiser this spring, all can be done in your own home after work hours? Do you love to plan events and want to help plan our April family fun night? Reach out to [email protected] if you are interested in joining our volunteer list or helping with a specific event! Ike is great because of our community and we’d love to have your help.
Auction Items needed:
Our PTA is coordinating auction baskets/items for the Schaumburg Township Council of PTAs (STC) annual auction, and WE NEED YOUR HELP! Each year the STC offers college scholarships to former District 54 students, and summer experience scholarships to current students. The funds to support these scholarships are raised during our annual Silent/Live Auction event. Since all our students can benefit from the scholarship funds offered by the STC, we are asking the Ike community for donations. We have given examples of donations below, or we welcome a Target or Walmart gift card that can be used to purchase items. All items need to be received prior to January 23rd. Please coordinate donations with the auction chair, Sara Chiovari ([email protected]). This is a great way for families to help out Ike, even if you are not able to work an event.
Sample items: *gift cards *art supplies *spa items *cooking/baking items *gardening items *sports items *outdoor toys *boredom busters *family games *If you have a business, we would love to highlight it either with a product or service donation. *If you have a talent/skill please consider donating that service to the auction (for example a zoom class teaching cooking, crafting, fitness, etc.)
Have you joined the Ike PTA yet this year? Parents, guardians, grandparents, community members – all are welcome! Every membership helps support the school without any other commitment (although we’d love if you wanted to help, of course). Check out our online store to become a member this year.
Happy holidays from your Ike PTA!
