No Grayslake Buses on Friday 5.14.21

 

Families/Guardians,

 

We just received a call this morning that D46 will not be in school on Friday, therefore Durham buses for D46 will not be running either direction on Friday, May 14th.  Please make a note of this on your calendar, and arrange for car-pools etc.  This only applies to those who are riding a Grayslake bus.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has been a week of tiny blessings walking in the door with flowers and cards for their teachers. Thank you to everyone who sent good thoughts and praises to our teachers here at St. Gilbert school, after this unusual year it is more deserved than ever. I know they are all waiting for summer break to get here so they can recharge their batteries, and relax with their families. 

 

On this note, I know there are still some families wondering if we will be offering “live” eLearning next school year, and the answer is “no” we will not offer Long Term eLearning as an option. We will use Short Term eLearning if there are quarantine restrictions, snow days, or facility emergencies. Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago made a plan to open our doors during the pandemic and do everything we could to ensure the safety, health, and education of our students. Our students’ success this year was the direct result of having access to an in-person education. Learning loss was little to none, our standardized test scores were high above national averages, and the emotional health of our students was addressed through our Social Emotional Learning periods daily.  As we look toward the future in the school year of 2021-22 we may not know yet what day-to-day safety measures will be needed, but we are committed to providing excellent personalized instruction for our students within our school environment.  Thank you all for your continued support and trust in St. Gilbert School.

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported our SGS Rocks Trivia & Auction! I want to thank all the people who worked behind the scenes to make this event a success; Nicole Beshel, Lisa Judd, Bridget DelCarmen, Lisa Jacobson, Dee Schneider, Katie Miglore, our room parents who coordinated donations for baskets, and many other volunteers and staff members who put in time to make this event successful. Thank you to everyone who made donations in support of this program. All the proceeds go to our Tuition Assistance Fund, and are used to help applicants to St. Gilbert be able to afford Catholic education.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This week I am going to highlight our ongoing events with appropriate links to each. May tends to be a very busy month as we head towards graduations and other end of the year events. One thing I do want to highlight is “Teacher Appreciation Week” May 3-7. Family School will be treating the teachers to lunch on Friday, but I would like to encourage the students to write a note either by; card, paper, or email to thank a teacher that has helped them in some way. Students could also bring a flower picked from their home garden to brighten up a teacher’s day. I think you will agree that the teachers at St. Gilbert have been stars through this tough, different school year-show them your love and appreciation with kind words and deeds throughout the week.

 

Blessings to you!

 

Mrs. Buckley, Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As more and more adults are eligible for the vaccine, and the weather is turning nicer, we are seeing an uptick in younger aged children testing positive for Covid-19 throughout Illinois. I am asking everyone to continue following our protocols of; mask wearing, maintaining social distancing, hand washing, and reporting travel or close contacts with individuals who have tested positive.  I have a teenager of my own and I know how hard it is to contain their activity, unfortunately if we don’t talk to them about the risks of their social activity the consequences might be the loss of freedoms; such as attending school, special celebrations, and end of the year activities.  Let’s all work together as a community to finish out the school year in a healthy, positive way-we are so close to the end of a very successful school year!

 

I want to clarify our eLearning policy at this time.....we only have a handful of students remaining in eLearning, eLearning is not available to be used for incidents of “sickness, tiredness, or just wanting a day home from school.”  eLearning will only be provided to the students who are currently selected eLearners, and/or individuals that are required to quarantine due to exposure or travel restrictions. Teachers who no longer have eLearning students are not teaching with an open “online format,” they are teaching  directly to students in the room. Thank you for your understanding.

 

As we head to some warmer days I have been asked about the "short policy." We will not be returning to what was allowed at the start of the school year as far as “random” shorts.  At this point we are transitioning back to a mindset of following a uniform policy going into the next school year.  What is allowed to be worn for warmer weather are; uniform style blue or khaki shorts, uniform jumpers, skirts, and skorts in corresponding grade level colors, gym shorts on your gym day, and the black shorts with SGS logo purchased off the Spirit Shop.  As I have mentioned before we will not be opening a Spirit Shop until right before next school year.  I do believe the options available will be sufficient to get us through the next month.

 

Bus Forms School Year 2021-22:

 

Our school is serviced by the Grayslake School District #46 and the Woodland School District #50 for those living within the respective districts' designated boundaries and outside one mile and a half from school and for those under a mile and a half who must cross a State Certified Safety Hazard.

 

A fee is charged to those taking a Woodland bus.

 

Completed bus request forms for school year 2021-22 are due to the St. Gilbert School Office by May 15, 2021.

 

The forms are attached to this edition of Thursday Tidbits.

 

Thankful Tidbits:

 

Thank you to Mr. Byrne for his donation of Milwaukee Tools for our maintenance department, to Carmel Catholic High School for their donation of child sized masks, and for the Corn families purchase of a hand-sanitizer dispenser for the preschool area.  We feel so blessed to have the assistance of so many families that make good things happen around our school.

 

Trivia Night Fundraiser:

 

Have you gotten your team together for our family friendly trivia night?  Due to our new online format this year, trivia will be appropriate for all ages. You can play from the comfort of your home while enjoying pizza from Emil’s and some quality time with family & friends.  Please consider it, we would like to fill all our available 200 spots!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As of this writing, the weather looks a bit dicey for our events on Saturday, but we do have a backup plan to hold the Spring Fling (11:00-2:00) sessions in the school building (gym and multipurpose room) so if you are signed up please come rain or shine to enjoy the fun activities our teachers have planned for you.  Our Scholastic book fair will be in the gym during this event-you will actually get to look at and touch books for purchase!  If there is rain for the evening movie, I will reschedule that to a new date.  I want to thank all the families and staff who generously donated all our needed items for this event; Blake, Schneider, Bing, Metz, Reed, Maloney, Bechard, Fuentes, Farrell, Angie Corti, Jan O’Brien, Lisa Kleber and Dawn Beagles.  The entire staff has worked extra hard to put together this event for our families, and we can’t wait to see everyone!

 

Our Lenten service project was a huge success; the school collected $2007.55 for United Way Lake County.  This organization helps individuals in Lake County with a myriad of needs.  Ask your children what this agency does, the entire school watched a live Zoom presentation by United Way staff explaining what types of services they provide.  Classroom winners are:  1st Week Most Change- 2A (Ms. Schapals), Most Pennies-8A (Mrs. Greffly), Most Dollars-3A (Ms. Erickson), Most Money Raised-K (Ms. Beagles).

 

The REBEL Way is a program we have been running all year; R-Responsible, E-Enthusiastic, B-Big Hearted, E-Empathetic, L-Leader....students earn tickets for demonstrating these behaviors that they can use to earn items off the weekly prize cart.  At the end of a trimester their teachers select a class “Rebel Way Leader” who has demonstrated all these qualities consistently over the past three months.  The REBEL Leaders for the 2nd Trimester are as follows: Tommy B.(K), Grace V. (1), Tyler L. (2A), Jesella S. (2B), Geri G. (3A), Matthew O. (3B), Gavin M. (4A), Mason O. (4B), Jonathan R. (5A), Evelina S. (5B), Chloe B. (6), Brianna R. (7A), Maria Z. (7B), Izzy B. (8A), Josh K. (8B).  Wonderful leadership students, you will also be receiving a breakfast reward from the Principal next Monday, April 12th!  

 

We are in need of more Clorox wipes, so if you can add a container or two to your shopping list for SGS that would be greatly appreciated! 

 

See below for SGS Summer Sports Camps that will be offered for grades 5-8 for basketball and volleyball.

 

Our next big event is SGS Rocks Virtual Trivia & Auction.  We will have a week of special Auction items you can bid on, as well as an evening of trivia with your family and friends.  Please consider forming a team to play trivia, registering as an event sponsor, and supporting Emil’s the night of the event.  Emil’s will be donating 10% of the total food sales that evening to the fundraiser.  The auction will be open to anyone, not just trivia players, from 4/26-5/2.  There will be a big variety of items from; class projects, teacher themed baskets, as well as other donations from local businesses.  We hope to make Catholic education a bit more affordable for those who wish to choose it, and keep our school enrollment strong!  All the proceeds will go towards our tuition assistance program.

 

Our new uniform store is ready for viewing and ordering for next year.  I have placed the link below.  We will be returning to full uniform wearing next school year, with some new colors and styles available.  If you register you will receive invitations to sales and special discounts that will run from now through the summer months.

 

Spring is in bloom!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Spring is finally here, and along with it comes all kinds of end of the year activities.  You will find a “tentative” school calendar for school year 2021-22 in the flyer section.  Please be advised that there could be additions/and or potential changes to this calendar as the school year goes on. 

 

We have had a wonderful response to our “Spring Fling” event that is coming April 10th.  There are a few car slots left for our drive-in movie night!  We look forward to seeing students and their families for the daytime activities, and we are praying for no rain!  Please sign up for an hour time slot so that we can control the number of people gathered on the property.  Hour (1)  is at the maximum allowed, but hours (2) & (3)  still have spots available. Some families have asked how they can help with events such as this, so please see below for an amazon shopping list for needed supplies, as well as a list of items we need that might be better purchased from local stores. If we could receive these items by 4.7.21 that would be helpful. Even though this event is outside we ask you to help us keep everyone safe by; wearing  masks, maintaining social distancing, and using the hand sanitizer provided.

 

Spring Fling Amazon Shopping List

 

Other Spring Fling event needs: (local shopping) 

 

Clothesline (1 roll)

Potting Soil (3)

Flower, Grass Seed

Small plants- flats- pansies, impatiens 

Plastic Eggs- 4 dozen

We have been getting an increased number of calls at the office regarding Vacation Bible School-we do regret to inform you that due to ongoing Covid restrictions this event has been cancelled for this summer.  We hope to resume VBS the summer of 2022!

 

Our School Board is in need of new members!  If you are interested please contact myself or Fr. John at; kris.buckley@stgilbertschool.orgpastor@stgilbertschool.org. To make this less of a  time commitment, board meetings are now every two months, and we have moved our meetings to a virtual format, which makes it easier to attend.  Mike Starzec’s Board President term is ending, and even though his shoes will be hard to fill, we do need to install new officers.  If you have been looking for a way to get involved in the school, this might be a way for you to share your time and talents.

 

Our 8th graders have acted out and filmed the “Stations of the Cross” for Holy Week, I have included a link to their performance; https://www.wevideo.com/view/2118195829

 

Please take some time to pray and reflect as they walk us all through events central to our faith. 

 

We wish our entire school community a very joyous Easter.

 

Mrs. Buckley, Faculty & Staff

 

Thank You:

 

Thank you to the Judd family for Rebel Way prize cart donations, the Soehl family for teacher treats, and Ecklunds for playground balls.

 

From Mrs. Kleber & the STEM program - Thank you to the following families for donations;  Kalivoda-Deszo family for their donation of 6 Circuit Maze games, now we can all enjoy this wonderful game. The Judd family for their donation of LEGO's, the recent donations of LEGO's have brought more female character choices for our students to choose from when working on a project.

 

To all of the families that are supporting our Technology based clubs;  the money that is raised and left over after expenses is put right back into our school. We were able to make a donation of $200 to the Junior High Library for a list of "wished for" books. The students are so very happy with all the new choices. 

 

There is still room to join one of our Spring Clubs, see the email that came out on Tuesday from myself or contact me if you need information for our clubs Grade 2 through 8.
