Welcome to your South School PTO website!

PTO Top 5 News!

Your South School PTO is planning some wonderful upcoming events for our students and families.  Here are the top 5 ways to stay connected, feel involved and always be included in the fun!

1.  Holiday’s are here.  Take it easy by joining us at one or all of these fun events.

Dec. 5th – Dine and share at Chili’s.  5-7 PM in Rosemont.  Some teachers are serving so don’t make your order too complicated!
Dec. 18th- Kick-off the Holiday’s with us at a Tailgate Party sponsored by Chili’s.  Check out the flyer or call Erin at 847/827-1248 to get in on the action.
Dec. 20th- Feel good and eat good in one night!  We are supporting a South School family owned restaurant- El Bistro Latino!  Hope to see you there.  Look out for a flyer.
Dec. 20th- 21st- We’re opening a Santa’s Workshop.  Students will be able to shop at school for the entire family.  It’s a great way to show them even more budgeting practice, being thoughtful to others and getting in the Holiday Spirit.

2.  We have Spirit Wear for sale!  It’s a great gift and students have been loving the new merchandise available.

3.   Feel good by collecting box tops and sending them to school with your child.  Ask everyone you know to help and collect for South!  You’d be amazed at how much can be earned.  The class with the most box tops wins a prize!

4.  Meet some friends at one of our monthly dine and shares.  No dishes to wash and you may run into another South School family.  You can also email the information to local friends and post on your FB pages.  The more wide-spread the news, the more profitable it is for our South students.

5.  Volunteers!  Communication and connection among South Families are our greatest gift.  Considering volunteering when you can.  It’s a great way to stay informed and we’re so fun!

Our next PTO meeting is Thursday, January 12th from 6-7PM.  Join us.

Good afternoon South Families,

Friday marks the midpoint of our first trimester. All students will be coming home with their fall MAP reports. These reports will show you how your child is performing in both Reading and in Math. Teachers use the information gathered from these assessments to set goals, monitor student progress, and ensure that they are differentiating their instruction to meet the needs of each and every child. If you have any questions or would like help reading the reports please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.

Spotlight on Learning

Many parents have expressed confusion about Common Core math. Here’s a great video that explains why so many states (including Illinois) have made the shift to Common Core and how this “new” math promotes critical thinking and problem solving.

El viernes marca el punto medio de nuestro primer trimestre. Todos los estudiantes van a recibir sus informes de MAP de otoño el viernes. Estos informes le mostrarán cómo su hijo se está desempeñando en lectura y en matemáticas. Los maestros usan la información obtenida en estas evaluaciones para establecer metas, monitorear el progreso del estudiante, y asegurarse de que se están diferenciando su instrucción para satisfacer las necesidades de cada niño. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta o desea ayuda en la lectura de los informes por favor no dude en ponerse en contacto con el maestro de su hijo.

Enfoque sobre el Aprendizaje
Muchos padres han expresado su confusión y frustración con las matemáticas de Ciclo Común (Common Core). Aquí está un vídeo que explica por qué tantos estados (incluyendo Illinois) han hecho el cambio a Ciclo Común y cómo estas “nuevas” matemáticas promueve el pensamiento crítico y la resolución de problemas.

¿Estás interesado en ayudar en las fiestas del salón de clases, chaperones de excursiones, o ayudar en la clase de su hijo? Todos los voluntarios de la escuela deben completar una sencilla aplicación que ya está disponible en línea en: http://www.d62.org/news/volunteering.html

A message from DPSO

El mensaje tambien sigue en español

Good afternoon South Families,

As I walk around the building I am truly amazed to see all the incredible things going on in classrooms.  Kids are engaged, excited, and ready for learning!  Our children are investigating problems in Science, researching about geography in Social Studies, experimenting with different instruments in music and so much more.

Spotlight on Learning

As a school we are really focusing on reading this year. As you know, the best way to improve reading is to read more!   We ask students at every grade to read at home and complete a reading log.  You can help by reading with your child or talking to him/her about what he or she is reading.

  • Ask them to retell the story
  • Have them describe the main character, the setting, or the main problem (conflict)
  • Ask them to point out new words they came across
  • Ask them how the story would be different if it took place in another time or location.
  • Have them show you specific examples from the story.

PTO Updates

The PTO is well under way and we are busy planning fun events!  Thanks to everyone who has supported the PTO and the school by becoming members, buying spirit wear and attending the picnic!  There is still time to become a member!  Your membership will help with the upcoming events at South School! 

Our first big fundraiser is coming soon!  Be on the lookout for World’s Finest Chocolate!!  It is coming home soon!  Also, remember that all year long we collect Box Tops!  This is an easy way to raise funds for our school!  Just cut out and return to your teacher or office!  Thanks for all your support to our PTO!  We are off to another great year!!

Other Updates/Reminders:

May 14th South School Minutes

• Attendance: Kim Vincent, Amy Cengel, Julie Freko, Lisa Horner, Amanda Morris, Stephany Salinas
• Principal update: Paarc testing, end of year events, how to best communicate with parents/guardians; would like suggestions
• Teacher appreciation was a success; liked the theme
• Carnation sale made a small profit
• Field Day is June 4th: we have volunteers for kitchen; Food prep at 9:30 am; Julie to get subs from Caputos; Amanda to get rest of food
• Next year planning:
• Halloween Fun Fair
• Return to school picnic: date TBD: membership drive; spirit wear
• Open House: date TBD; membership, spirit wear, room parents
• Lisa/Rachel suggested a kindergarten “boo hoo and tea party” for first day of school
• Discussed improved ways to communicate next year
• Discussed how to improve PTO membership and volunteers
• Discussed ways to get spirit wear items sooner
• Next PTO date set: Thursday Aug 20th 6pm; place TBD

Some new ideas for next year: Rachel has offered to do all the PTO flyers for all events next year as this is her specialty!! She will design the flyer, Maria or Stephany can translate, Mrs Ruiz will copy and Rachel will place in teacher mailboxes! Thank you so much Rachel! I think this will be extremely helpful!
Spirit wear for kindergarten will be ordered this year and was will also place an order for shirts/sweatshirts/long sleeves to have on hand; will still place an order for what people want
Thinking about reducing fee for membership to either nothing or $5 and making sure to separate membership from volunteering; I put some further thought into that; asking the question what does membership really mean and honestly I didn’t have an answer to that question. With research, I came up with maybe membership means voting rights on big topics. I have been at South for 4 years and nothing has come up for vote….something to think about and discuss in August.

Thanks everyone for your commitment this year! You were all awesome and I have a small thank you gift for those who didn’t get theirs yet!!

South News 4.28.15

    Hello South Families,


We have so many things going on at South that I just couldn’t wait until Friday to tell you about them!

Parent Survey

Thanks so much to those of you who already completed the parent communication survey I sent out last week. If you haven’t filled it out, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JY7KYZK. It should only take a moment. We truly appreciate your feedback.

Kindergarten Open House:

Calling all parents of NEW kindergarten students! We will be having an Open House this Thursday, April 30 from 6:00-7:00. Come by and meet Mrs. Juskiewicz, see the classroom, and learn more about some of the exciting things that will be happening in kindergarten next year.

Pay it Forward Day

Thursday, April 30 is National Pay it Forward Day. The Student Council has planned a couple of great activities in honor of this day. For one, members will be collecting donations for the victims of the recent tornado in Fairfield, Illinois during lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. No amount is too small! Our goal is to raise $150.

We are also creating a “brick” wall titled, “Building a Better School Brick by Brick” . Any one who sees or does a random act of kindness will get a paper brick and help build our wall in the cafeteria. We are asking students to think of something nice they can do for someone else, and do it!

MAP Testing

All students will be taking their final round of MAP testing starting this week! Please talk to your children about the importance of doing their best, getting a good night’s sleep, and eating a healthy breakfast on testing days. Please see below for the schedule:

AM Kinder – 05/04, 05/07
PM Kinder – 05/04, 05/05
1st – 05/05, 05/06
2nd – 05/05, 05/06

4th – 04/30, 05/04
5th – 04/30, 05/01

Parking Again

Please remember that there is NO parking along the side of the building. This area must be clear for busses. It is also becoming a major safety concern. We have seen several students run out to there to get into the car without even looking. Safety always has to be our number one priority so I truly appreciate your immediate attention to this matter. You may park in front of the school, in the lot out front, or on the streets surrounding South School.

Other Upcoming Dates:

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week!
May 4: BEST Open House at Terrace School from 5:30-6:30
