Dear Solomon Family--

Polls opened for our Local School Council elections this morning at 6am. You can enter through either Door 1 or Door 4 anytime between now and 7pm to vote for parent, community, teacher, or non-teaching staff representatives (the student vote was held yesterday). The polls close tonight at 7pm, and results will be posted on our website.

As a reminder, we are hosting parent-teacher conferences from 11:00-2:15 and 3:00-6:00 today. Families have signed up for either in-person or virtual conferences today. All families should come by the main office to pick up their child's report card, either today or during business hours (9am-4pm) through the end of the week.

Last, our annual Walk, Jog, Roll-a-thon (WJR) fundraiser is returning this year on May 13. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for ADDITIONAL PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS to supplement what the 39th Ward will be providing and to strengthen our school community. We've asked our friends at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it more profitable, fun, and easy for everyone.

If your family feels it is not in the position to financially support the school, that is okay. Families can support our school by also sharing information about our fundraiser with friends and family online. Sharing is supporting!

Key Dates to Remember:

  • Registration opens April 20 (today) at mybooster.com
  • Donating starts on April 27
  • Fundraiser kickoff starts on May 4
  • WJR Event Day is May 13

Thank you for supporting Solomon through the Walk, Jog, Roll-a-thon!

In partnership,

Chris Gamble
