It's hard to believe we are already in our 4th week of school!
A very special thank you to the 5/6 grade teacher team. On Monday, September 14, teachers, chaperones and 150 students went to Camp Duncan in Ingleside, IL for an educational outing to work on various team building exercises. It was a day filled with new learning experiences and getting to know each other. Thank you Mrs. Del Campo for organizing this annual trip. Check out the photo!
Thank you to Mr. Raman for presenting on Executive Functions this pastweek. The workshop was informative and provided helpful tips on how to manage time and organize oneself. Students are utilizing these tools in grades five to eight to develop organizational skills that will help not only with their daily academic routine but with life. The top three takeaways from the workshop are highlighted in an article below.
Please join us at our annual Curriculum Night, next Wednesday evening September 30 at 6:00 pm for new families in the Gym. And for returning families, please go directly to your child's classroom at 6:30pm. This is a PARENTS ONLY event. Come and hear what your child will be learning this school year. Childcare will be available (if needed) at $10 per family. Please see below for more details.
If you have not already done so, please turn in all medical forms. Remember October 15 is the deadline. All students whose medical information is not current WILL BE EXCLUDED from school per CPS policy. Do not let this happen to your child.
CPS has unfortunately cut all elementary school sports funding. The Waters administration is committed to funding and continuing the sports program at Waters as best we can. After school electives are extremely important and beneficial for children. Waters will continue to keep athletics as a priority after school program. More information will available soon.
CPS is in the process of developing the fall season schedule for all sports. Not all CPS schools will be involved so creating the schedule has been challenging. More information to follow.
