Schaumburg Parent University – April Classes

Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are two evening programs in April in the Rafferty Administration Center Board Room, 524 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg. Both of these events are free and free child care is also available.

PTA News- STC Elementary Summer Scholarships:

Does your 7th grader attend a camp or enrichment program over the summer?  The Schaumburg Township Council of PTAs offers summer scholarships for students of District 54 who are currently in 1st through 7th grades.

  • Scholarships will be awarded for the full cost of the program/camp up to $125.
  • The parent/guardian must be a member of the PTA at the school attended by the child applying for the scholarship by March 1, 2015.
  • Applications must be turned in to the Addams Junior High office no later than Friday, March 20, 2015.

  • Questions? Contact Heather Collier at hcoll@comcast.net.

5Essentials Survey: 

As a way to continuously improve, District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

If you have more than one child at a school, you should complete only one survey for that school. In addition, only one parent or guardian per household may participate in the survey. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. Schools are listed alphabetically by their full names.

If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. Last year, when the number was 30 percent, none of our schools met this target. We are hoping to meet the target this year.

To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ between January 12 and March 20, 2015.

Chris Bingen

The Diary of Anne Frank

Posted March 13th, 2015 by Mr. Truppa

8th Grade LA students are finishing up The Diary of Anne Frank before Spring Break. Students have been commenting on how surprised they are that they enjoy the play so much and can easily identify with Anne. We will end the unit with a reflection on The Holocaust and the implications of hatred and racism.

Social Studies: 8th Grade

Posted March 13th, 2015 by Mr. Truppa

Our 8th grade Social Studies classes have just finished studying the Cold War and Korean War. We had many worthwhile and thought provoking discussions as the students were interested in learning about the various government structures throughout the world.  We are now moving into the 1950s and 1960s and studying how many influential civil rights activists worked diligently to improve life for various minority groups in America. We will continue this unit until after spring break.
