Good morning Fantastic Families of Nerge!
As expected, the school year has gotten off to a great start with a productive first week. It is great to have all of the students back at school and ready to learn. Teachers have been instructing students in classroom routines, and we have been reminding students of our PBIS expectations for safe, respectful, and responsible behavior. The students have been doing a wonderful job of contributing to an extremely positive learning environment at Nerge.
Please note that there is no school on Monday, September 1st, due to Labor Day.
We welcome our new kindergarteners on Tuesday, September 2nd.
Please see the attachment from State Superintendent Chris Koch, and another attachment detailing an opportunity to support the Foundation this weekend at Septemberfest.

Run to Read – September 28
District 54 will host its 10th Annual Run to Read on Sunday, Sept. 28, at Dirksen School in Schaumburg. Run to Read is a day of races offering something for everyone. The day begins with 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children. At 8:45 a.m., we start our 5K run followed by a family walk at 9 a.m. All four events support our goal of collecting 1,000 children’s books for every classroom in District 54. To register or find out more information about Run to Read, please follow this link to the District’s website http://sd54.org/runtoread/. Register by Sept. 5 to save $5 on your registration fee and reserve a race Tshirt in your size. Finisher medals are awarded to the top 3 finishers in each age group and participation medals are awarded to all children.
Schaumburg Parent University
District 54 is excited to once again offer our families the Schaumburg Parent University (SPU). The Parent University is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. We offer two types of classes – Practical Parenting for adults only and Time Together, where families learn and play together. Most classes are free and childcare is provided.
This year we have already scheduled parenting classes about Erin’s Law on Sept. 30 and internet safety on Oct. 7, as well as Time Together STEM projects on Sept. 16 and art projects on Oct. 22. Before we plan the rest of the classes for this school year, we would like to hear from you. What classes would you be interested in taking? How would you prefer to learn about SPU? Please take this quick survey (7 questions)at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1767964/Schaumburg-Parent-University-Survey so that the Schaumburg Parent University can meet the needs of our community.
