Parents and Community Members--

For this abbreviated newsletter, I just wanted to share a few notes:

  • Students brought home SchoolKidz supply kits information last week. To order next year's school supplies, specific to each classroom, you can submit the paper forms to the main office by June 12. Online orders at will be taken until June 19 (our school account number for online sales is 40823). Kits will be available for pick-up at Solomon the week before school starts in the fall (August 28-30). Limited extra paper copies of the teacher-created supply kits are available in the main office. 
  • International Night will be held on Friday, June 2, from 6-8pm in our school gymnasium. Early sales for food tickets are available until May 31, at which point tickets can only be purchased at the door. The form for pre-orders is available here.
  • Still thinking about volunteering for the event but haven't committed yet? We love our volunteers! Please fill out this and return to the main office. 
  • Just a reminder about International Night: No water fights will be allowed for this school-sanctioned event. Thanks for your cooperation.
  • Good luck to our selected 4th, 5th, and 6th graders performing at the Spring Dance-Off at the Chicago Cultural Center on Thursday, June 1.
  • Because of the holiday weekend, there is no practice for 5/6th grade Girls Soccer on Friday, May 26, and there is no scheduled game this weekend. Practice resumes on Tuesday, May 30, and the final game of the season is scheduled for Saturday, June 3.  

Have a safe and fun holiday weekend!
