“PACK THE PIGGIES” AHC SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER: Are you ready to Pack the Piggies? The Arlington Heights Council of PTA’s (AHC-PTA) funds $11k worth of scholarships each year.  The scholarships are divided into $10k for graduating D214 seniors, and $1k given to D25 elementary students. The contest runs 3/14-3/17. Each school will have a goal of raising $1k.  If we reach our goal, the students will get to silly string Principal Kaese! Please help us reach our goal by having students bring in coins, cash, or checks to pack their school’s piggy! Let’s have some fun for a great cause!

ILLINOIS 5ESSENTIALS SURVEY NOW OPEN: It’s that time of year again and we want your input! Please participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey, as a part of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey administration. The survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child as school reports will only present aggregated information of how parents responded as a whole. In order for the survey report to be generated we need at least 20 percent of our parents to take the survey.

Please CLICK HERE to take the parent survey. It is open now through March 11.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.

EXECUTIVE BOARD OPEN POSITIONS: We have a few open positions for the 2022/2023 school year: President-Elect, Treasurer, and Secretary. Please begin to consider who you would like to nominate for these roles, or if you would like to nominate yourself. Contact Katie Taranda if you have any additional questions, ktaranda@gmail.com.

I-FIVES: Thank you to the volunteers that formed our Nominating Committee! Our committee is now full!

Thank you also to our Birthday Books Committee for their continued work to organize and distribute books to our students! Students have been really excited to receive their books!
