Dear Solomon Family--

After this short week, I am wishing everyone a restful and enjoyable weekend. As a reminder, there is no school tomorrow due to Veterans Day, and no school will be held on Friday due to Vaccine Awareness Day.

Before we head off, though, I want to provide a few club and sports updates:

  • We will accept applications for our Winter Before and After School (OST) Clubs through the end of the day on Sunday, November 14. Starting Monday, the application form will be closed. You can find the form here.
  • We still have spaces available in Drama Club (grades 1-3), Campfire Songs with Ukelele (grades K-8), Volleyball Club (grades 5-8), and Computer Science (grade 8 only). Piano lessons have closed, and we have an extensive waitlist. Families have been notified about their spots, so if you have not heard from us, it is because you are on the waitlist.
  • Students can only apply for one club per session.
  • Tutoring/Homework Help does not require a sign-up, and your child can drop in at the assigned time for their grade band. Have your child come with specific work that needs to be completed.

Also, we are excited to announce our practice times for our 5/6th grade and 7/8th grade boys basketball teams with Coach Sergio:

  • 5/6 Boys: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:15-5:30
  • 7/8 Boys: Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:15-5:30
  • Players should exit the building with their classmates and then enter the gym through Door #4 at 4:15. Players will be dismissed through Door #4.
  • Practices start the week of November 15.

More information about games will come out in the next few weeks. If your child is on either of those teams and you have a question for the coach, you can reach out to him at sariasquiroz@cps.edu.

In partnership,
