Dear D15 Friends and Families,

CEC15 and Superintendent Skop invite EVERYONE to celebrate District 15’s School Spirit Week at Home starting Monday, March 23, with Pajama Day!

  • MARCH 23RD – PAJAMA DAY
  • MARCH 24TH – RAINBOW DAY
  • MARCH 25TH – CRAZY HAT/HAIR DAY
  • MARCH 26TH – SCHOOL SHIRT/COLORS DAY
  • MARCH 27TH – HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAY ! SEND A BIRTHDAY GREETING TO A FRIEND, EVEN IF IT’S NOT THEIR BIRTHDAY

A BIG shout out to all the Principals, Teachers and Staff that continue to help our children to learn during this difficult time. You are an inspiration to us all!

We know that working from home under these conditions can have it’s challenges. Staying on a schedule that includes self-care is incredibly important for achieving success. Here are some suggestions for a more enjoyable day:

  • Schedule a few minutes each day to open your mind and heart to a new day.

  • Time management will be your friend throughout this journey. Create a To Do List.

  • Find a dedicated space for you or your child to work – Allow yourself the time to organize your work space so that productivity can flow.

  • Stay hydrated by drinking at least eight ounces of water every day. And take a break for lunch. Stand up, stretch, reach for the STARS!

  • Find a ray of sunshine – Even if you can’t get outside, sit by a window for a few minutes and look out on the world with different eyes.

  • Don’t forget, we’re all in this TOGETHER. If you need something, reach out.

Know that we are here for you and wishing everyone enormous success on this new journey that we are embarking on TOGETHER.

Stay Safe and Healthy!

CEC15
