Principal’s Corner – June 2, 2017

Dear Hale community,
On behalf of the entire Hale Staff, I want to thank you for making this year a positive and successful one. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure your children succeeded both in and out of the classroom.

Summer Office Hours

Hale’s Main Office will be open from 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM until June 9. The office will reopen on August 4, 2017, when our office secretaries return.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Class placement letters will be mailed home to every family that has completed residency in early August.

 

Report Cards Online June 5

Hale parents/guardians and students will be able to view their report cards online this semester on June 5, more than a week before the hard copy report cards are mailed on June 14. District 54 is piloting the online report card in an effort to share information in a timelier manner and to become more environmentally friendly by not printing report cards for parents who prefer the online version.
I want to ensure that all of our parents have access to this early viewing of the report card, so I highly encourage you to sign up for the District 54 Infinite Campus Parent/Student Portal before June 5. The portal is a website and app where parents and guardians can view their children’s grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and now report cards.
If you have not previously logged on to the portal, contact our front office for instructions on how to obtain a secure Campus Portal Activation Key.
If you have already created an account, to view the report card on June 5 you must first log in to the account from a computer (the report card will not be accessible in the app).
Click on the Report Card link on the left side of your screen. This link will take you to another page, where you will be asked to log in again for security reasons. After logging in, you will see the report card files for all of your children. Click on any of the report cards to download the pdf file.
This year, on June 14, we plan to mail a report card to each home. Next year, we will only be making hard copies available for families who are unable to access the report cards online.

Have a great summer and we will see you in August!

Hale Hotline

Dear Hale community,

What a great day we had at Hale today!  We started off by recognizing our 6th graders at the 6th grade breakfast.  It was nice to see all of the students dressed up and making another memory here at Hale.  This afternoon our Kindergartners held their Writing Celebration and shared some of their work with their special guests.  We are looking forward to wrapping up the year with Field Day and other special events that our students and staff will be sure to remember.

Boletas de calificaciones en-línea para Junio 5

Los padres / guadianés de la escuela Hale podrán ver sus boletas de calificaciones en línea este semestre el 5 de junio, más de una semana antes de que las copias impresas sean enviadas el 14 de junio.  El Distrito 54 está poniendo a prueba la boleta de calificaciones en línea en un esfuerzo para compartir información de una manera más oportuna y para ser más respetuosa con el medio ambiente al no imprimir boletas de calificaciones para los padres que prefieren la versión en línea.

Quiero asegurarme de que todos nuestros padres tengan acceso a la tarjeta de calificaciones en línea, por lo que le animo a que se inscriba en el Portal de Padres / Estudiantes del Distrito 54 de Infinite Campus antes del 5 de junio. El portal es un sitio web y una aplicación donde Los padres y los guardianes pueden ver las calificaciones de sus hijos, las asignaciones, las vacunas, los resultados de las pruebas, la información demográfica y ahora también las boletas de calificaciones.

Si no ha recibido acceso previo  al portal, póngase en contacto con nuestra oficina a 847-357-6200 para obtener instrucciones sobre cómo recibir una Clave de activación segura  para el portal de padres. Si ya ha creado una cuenta, para ver la boleta de calificaciones el 5 de junio, primero debe iniciar su sesión entrando en su cuenta desde una computadora.  (La boleta de calificaciones no estará disponible a través de la aplicación web).  Haga clic en el enlace de la boleta de calificaciones ubicado en el lado izquierdo de la pantalla. Este enlace lo llevará a otra página, donde se le pedirá que inicie la sesión de nuevo por razones de seguridad. Después de iniciar la sesión, verá los archivos de la boleta de calificaciones  para todos sus hijos. Haga clic en cualquiera de las boletas de calificaciones para descargar el archivo pdf.

Este año, planeamos enviar una boleta  de calificaciones a cada hogar el 14 de junio.  El próximo año, sólo haremos copias impresas disponibles para familias que no puedan acceder a las tarjetas de calificaciones en línea.

Veteran’s Day Board

untitled

Thank you to the many families that sent in pictures of your loved ones that have served our country.  It was great seeing the students stop by our Wall of Honor to search for their relatives or just read about the many different Veterans connected to our community.

That same sense of community has been on display this week as we have focused on bringing awareness to diabetes.  Today’s special pizza day was able to raise over five hundred dollars for the American Diabetes Association and we hope everyone will participate in our “blue out” this Friday.

As Thanksgiving approaches we can’t help but be thankful for the supportive community we have here at Hale.  We hope you enjoy time relaxing with your families this holiday.

Veteran’s Day is a time to remember those who have protected our freedom.  In addition to activities in the classrooms we will be creating a Veteran’s Day Wall of Honor.  If you have a loved one that has been or is currently in the military please send in a picture with your child to the office marked Veteran’s Day by November 10th.  If at all possible please send in a copy of the picture, rather than an original as we will be displaying them in our front hallway.  Please be sure that your child’s name and room number are on the back of the picture so we may return it to your family safely.
