ONE SCHOOL ONE STORY

Our One School One Story program is underway! The title, Dragons in a Bag, was announced last Friday and a book was sent home to every Edi-Linc family. We hope you will enjoy reading the book together and participating in our weekly trivia. Each student should have a printout of the trivia questions, and completed entries can be turned in to your child’s teacher or placed in the basket located in the main office. Winners will be selected at the end of each week. The parent letter, reading schedule and trivia questions can also be found here. Don't forget about your Week 1 trivia questions - they are due this Friday, January 28. Questions?

REACH PARENT GROUP

Fostering Psychosocial Skills Necessary for Achievement, February 10th at 1:00pm via Zoom.

Join the REACH PG and our guest speaker, Rhoda Rosen, from Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development to discuss how can parents help their curious, bright children acquire the skills necessary to develop fully their talent, including setting goals, managing their motivation, embracing challenge, and controlling anxiety? How can they help their advanced students to cultivate social and psychological skills that will support high achievement?  In this session, we present key psychological principles of learning and motivation and how they apply specifically to advanced learners, including resources for fostering motivation and other key psychosocial skills. This meeting is open to ALL D205 parents.

SUMMER RECREATION OPEN HOUSE

District 205 PTA is proud to host the 20th Annual Summer Recreation Open House on the evening of Tuesday, February 15, 2022 from 6:00-8:00pm at York Commons! The goal of this event is to give parents the opportunity to "one-stop-shop” for summer recreational and educational programs that families can attend, work or volunteer for. Programs present at this event are for children of all ages (pre-K through HS) and abilities. This open house is provided at no charge to parents. For our community organizations, this is an excellent opportunity to showcase your 2022 in-person and virtual summer programs! We hope to see you there! Check out our SROH Facebook page for information, updates, and highlights from some of the businesses who will be in attendance!
