KANE COUNTY OZZIE COUGARS READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM

Your student should have brought home your Kane County Cougars tickets last week. Good job to all the students who participated. Our school dates are Sunday, April 29 at 1 pm, or Saturday, May 12, at 1 pm. If you have any questions, please contact Hyeon Tai at taigrrrl@yahoo.com.



SCHOOL SUPPLY KITS

Last year there were issues with the school supply kit vendor delivering the supplies to our students on time. As such, we have contracted with a new company, Carlson School Kits, for next year’s delivery. Carlson School Kits is a local/family-owned company that has been in business for 103 years, 29 of those doing school kits. Other district #204 schools have provided good feedback on their experiences with Carlson.

Carlson’s builds their kits based on the teacher's lists and offers home delivery of the supplies. So, parents don't have to wait in long queues during 'Meet and Greet'! Please look out for the flyers coming back home in a couple of days in koala folders. In case of any questions, please contact Dipti Mittal (diptgupta@gmail.com).

LMC VOLUNTEERS

New volunteer shifts available at the LMC. We are looking for volunteers to work from 11am-1pm any day M-F. Also looking for volunteers Monday or Thursday afternoons from 1/1:30-3/3:30pm. Volunteers shelve books, help students, repair and cover books. If interested please contact jenn.don64@gmail.com.
