This week has been a pleasure! I am so happy to have the students back in school with our staff.
Earlier this week, I removed the fencing so students could access both playgrounds during recess. Hopefully the weather conditions will cooperate and beginning Monday, geo drilling will begin. If so, the fences will be put back into their places and the playgrounds will be off limits.
We are so happy to be back outdoors! Even though the temperatures are warmer, please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for outdoor activities.
As a reminder, please ask your child for their Report Card, they will be sent home on Monday.
We have some exciting events this month:
Photo Booth - Thursday, February 14
Valentine’s Dance - Friday, February 15
100th day - Kindergarten parade
Chinese New Year - February 19
Big Night - March 9
Pi Night- March 14

Please see the flyer for the Photo Booth and Dance. Please note the activities will take place on separate days. Remember these are fundraisers for our 8th grade annual class trip and we aim to take all of our students to St. Louis.
This month, Mauricio Segovia, was appointed as the Chief of Network 2. Mr. Segovia has served CPS for 25 years and his most recent appointment was Principal at Darwin elementary school. Welcome Mr. Segovia to our network and school community!
In addition, I am pleased to welcome Anthony Vivit, our security officer to Waters School. Some of you may know him as he has worked with our students during recess and in our after school programs.
Please join us at our monthly Local School Council Meeting on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 6:30 pm. We will have an update on our proposed addition from our Facilities and Grounds subcommittee.
