Weekly Bulletin . . .

In lieu of a weekly bulletin, we would like to extend the following letter to thank everyone for their support and wish all a happy summer.

Dear Sutherland Families and Community Members,

We would like to take a moment to wish everyone a wonderful, safe, happy, fun and relaxing summer. We really appreciate all of the supportive parents and community members who work with the school to provide the best possible environment for students. Thank you to everyone who contributed to ensure the students had a successful school year for school year 2013-2014.

We do hope the students continue to read and practice skills over the summer. Stride Academy will remain available for students throughout the summer. As will RAZ kids. The MAP practice sites are also available. The new growth measure from end of year to end of year is more difficult and we need your help to ensure student success.

We know that you will provide the students with many learning opportunities throughout the summer. A trip to the museum, aquarium, or planetarium can be an exciting adventure and a great learning opportunity. A trip to the library is also a wonderful way to enjoy time with your children. Have a great summer and enjoy the quality time with family.

Once again, we really appreciate the support and wish all of you a wonderful summer. There are some summer opportunities listed on the website. We will post as information becomes available. Please check the website in August for details about the opening of school and related activities.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Elwood and Ms. Gannon

Upcoming Events to Keep in Mind . . .

Sutherland School Vision Statement

The Sutherland School community envisions a school where student learning is facilitated in a manner that ensures that each student reaches his or her potential and grows and develops intellectually, socially and in global awareness. Students as described in the IB Learner Profile are learners who strive to be inquirers, thinkers, communicators, and risk takers who are knowledgeable, principled, open-minded, caring, balanced and reflective. Our students will have the necessary skills to be successful in high school and post secondary education.

Announcements:

 

Please do not bring edible birthday treats to school.

The Board of Education has adopted a food allergy management policy. As a result students are no longer allowed to bring edible treats to school for their classmates. We suggest celebrating your child's special day by donating a book for the classroom library or sending sending stickers, pencils or other non-edible items to pass to their classmates.

Friendly Reminders . . .

  • Drivers in and around the school
    Please be courteous and cautious when dropping off or picking up students. We need you to respect the traffic patterns and safety patrol crossing areas. Please do not block crosswalks, double park to drop off or park and wait unnecessarily blocking traffic and creating congestion.
  • Arrival and Dismissal

    Students are to arrive to school no earlier than 7:50. There is no one to supervise them before this time. Parents who can walk their children to school are encouraged to do so to keep the traffic to a minimum. Those who do drive are asked to drop their children off next to the curb and then leave the premises. Students are to be picked up at 3:00. No one should enter the parking lot before or after school, as there is a great deal of pedestrian traffic at that time. If your child forgets his/her lunch please know that we have extra lunches and they will be fed. Lunches can be purchased at the school

  • Safety and Security
    Visitors (anyone who is not a staff member or student) will not be allowed to be in the building unless they have entered through the office, signed in and received a visitor’s pass. Please do not enter with the children or through any door other than the office door on Hamilton to obtain a pass. In the event of an emergency we need to know exactly how many people are in the building. The new procedures are in alignment with Chicago Public School Board Policy or Illinois School Code. Please be cooperative with staff in regards to these necessary precautions.
  • Attendance
    It is important that we know that the students are safe. It is preferred that the parents call the school between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. so that we know your child is at home with you. We will then determine who has not as of yet been accounted for and begin calling these homes ourselves. The more people who call us the sooner we will be able to account for all students. Our goal is to have the parent of every child who is absent call in.
  • SAFETY & SECURITY
    As you all know safety and security have been and will always be a priority at Sutherland. We have plans and procedures in place for every type of emergency and ask that you support us by always following the visitor policy and understanding that we must insist everyone go to the office and only enter at that door. Last week we spent a great deal of time reviewing the emergency procedures with staff. We were visited by our network head of security to ensure our plans were in order. Going forward we will continue to visit our policies and practice our drills and remain hyper vigilant about safety.  Your cooperation is appreciated. We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of all of our students here at Sutherland.
