Dear Solomon Family--

A tradition unlike any other, our International Night returns this week! We are excited to celebrate with you!

A few bullet-points:

  • International Night is coming this Friday, June 3, from 6-8pm. The weather looks wonderful--warm and sunny. Like previous years, you will be able to enter the gym to get your delicacies from around the globe. Unlike previous years, though, we will not have seating inside. We will set up some tables in the grass outside of Door #5 (on Granville), and we invite you to bring chairs and picnic tables to set up on our lawn. All ticket sales will happen outside of Door #5, the southwest corner of our building, due to the construction outside of Door #1.

  • A note from our International Night organizers:

"Thank you for the all that have donated and volunteered! We have attached a google doc sign up sheet for all who are wanting to volunteer for International Night and have not signed up already. The excitement is in the air, and we cannot wait for the festivities to begin. We will need help with setting up, cleaning up, serving food, and so on.

Any questions please email internationalnightsolomon@gmail.com"

  • We have one more restaurant giveback scheduled this year, June 1 at Lou Malnati's (see the flier below). Take a night off from cooking, enjoy some pizza, and support our Friends of Solomon School PTO.

  • Frozen Jr. musical performances for our community have been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 31 (6:30) and Wednesday, June 1 (5:00). For questions about redeeming tickets or purchasing additional tickets for the performance, contact Mrs. Williams at kikiw1975@yahoo.com.

  • Incoming Kindergarten families--we ask you to join us at Solomon on Thursday June 2, at 9:15 for our annual Kindergarten Connection. This is an opportunity to meet the teaching team and each other, as well as learn more about our program. We are excited for you and your child to join us!

  • We have added one more Tot Time for prospective Pre-K parents (room 108 with Ms. Coppa) on Monday, June 14, at 2pm. We also have our rescheduled one this Thursday, June 2, at 4:30pm. For both Tot Times, please enter Solomon through Door #1.


  • School supply kits through Teacher Tailored can now be purchased for the 2022-2023 school year through June 10. Kits will be delivered to homes by August 12, and a portion of the sales goes to our Friends of Solomon School PTO. Check out the picture below for more information on ordering; or, if you prefer the old fashioned method, you can find every general education homeroom's supply list here (updated link) and then buy items individually.

  • Our COVID infection rate is going up across the city, and we are seeing it at Solomon as well. Currently we have 3 staff and 3 students quarantined due to positive tests, and we have 9 students quarantined as unvaccinated close contacts. Please, if your child is ill, keep them at home until they are symptom free for 24 hours without the aid of medication. The most recent community exposure, issued this past Friday, can be found here.

In partnership,
