From the Desk of the Principal
November is the month for being thankful. Therefore, I want to take this time to thank the students, parents, and teachers who make Palos East a great place to learn. I will start by thanking all the parents who helped with our Halloween festivities including the spirit lunch, parade, and classroom parties. We had perfect weather for our Halloween parade and our students enjoyed the activities the parents organized for them in the classrooms and lunchroom. The Boo Bash was quite the spectacular event. A huge thanks to all of the parents and family members who helped organize and run the event. A lot of hard work and dedication went into creating such memorable moments for the students here at Palos 118. With much gratitude, I would like to recognize our teachers. The passion they have for teaching in this community is admirable. They work diligently to provide engaging learning opportunities for our students, and they volunteer their time to involve themselves in school and community events that extend beyond the school day. They are truly dedicated. Finally, a special thanks to the students who put forth their very best effort to be honest, respectful, and responsible children. On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.
I look forward to celebrating America Education Week (November 14
) with the Palos East School community. American Education Week presents the opportunity to celebrate education and honor individuals who are making a difference for our children. Please review the events for the week provided in this newsletter, and join us on Wednesday, November 16
for "The Pro Kids Show!" assembly led by Tim Hanning and a visit to your child's classroom.
