When parents arrive for parent-teacher conferences, they will see hallways filled with decorations. To keep the growth mindset alive at Elementary South, the school held a door decoration contest. Students researched growth mindset quotes and created door decorations using the quotation themes. STAR Team members judged the decorations.
The Hawthorn Enrichment Institute summer program is open to all kindergarten through eighth-grade Hawthorn District 73 students. It will take place from July 9 – August 10, 2018. Registration begins February 1, 2018.
Elementary South invited parents to visit the classrooms of their children in observance of American Education Week, Nov. 13 to 17. The students were excited to work on projects alongside their parents.
Do you know the history behind American Education Week? Representatives of the National Education Association and the American Legion met in 1919 to seek ways to generate public support for education after the recognition that so many WWI draftees were illiterate. They adopted resolutions for a national effort to raise public awareness of the importance of education. The first observance of American Education Week was in 1921.
Congratulations to Annie Zbylut, a third grade student at Elementary South. She was selected as Artsonia’s PreK-3rd “ARTIST OF THE WEEK” for September 17 – September 23. During the contest, Annie received 2392 votes from website visitors. Artsonia is the largest student art museum in the world.
This morning there was a suspicious black car we believe to be a Lincoln possibly taking photos of students as they entered school. The car was parked off of school property. Please take extra caution and keep a watchful eye. Inform our Resource Officer Jon Paret or the Vernon Hills Police Department if you see anything out of the ordinary.
