Blastoff! 3rd grade is stuck in outer space and needs to learn about geographic features of the globe to help navigate our way home. We will make our way back by locating our hemisphere, continent, country, state and community. Don’t forget to follow our class on Twitter @LinkLions108 and http://link.sd54.org/kbowman/ to share in our travels as we make our way home.

Hello Wonderful Link Community!

What a beautiful day to finish our field day festivities! We owe a huge thank you to our PE teacher, Mr. Brown, the Link staff, and of course the many parent volunteers that made field day a huge success. This is certainly a great way to usher in the summer. As this is the final email for this school year, we want to wish you all a safe and happy summer, filled with lots of fun and learning!

One of the greatest aspects of Link School is our community, the relationships we have with each other and the focus on supporting others. We have various staff members leaving us at the conclusion of the school year. Supporting each other through new endeavors is just as important as celebrating our time together.

  • Elena Duarte (5th) will be relocating to Virginia with her family this summer. We are thankful for the impact she has had here at Link!
  • Bethany Gates (5th) will be crossing the ocean to take her talents as a classroom teacher to Nigeria. We know that she will continue her great work in a brand new setting!
  • Susan Nottoli (LRT), Bob Prusko (Kindergarten), and Emily Villarreal (5th) will be taking their talents to Hoover Math and Science Academy in District 54. We know that Hoover is lucky to have them!
  • Donna Duff, Myndi Casey, Marie Parise, Lisa Hyland (Instructional Assistants) worked with staff and students to create engaging learning environments throughout the year. We know that they will continue to support District 54 exceptionally well in their new capacities.
  • Karen Marlega (Instructional Assistant) will be joining the Mead staff as one of their secretaries. We know that she will do a great job in this new position!
  • Cathleen Hughes (Art) and Ann Kivikko (Band) will be enjoying their retirement at the close of this school year. We thank them for their incredible impact on District 54 and Link School and wish them the best in their next chapter!

Every staff member that works at Link, whether it is 1 year or 15, leaves their mark on our hearts and in our culture. We’ve begun the hiring process for some of these open positions, and are excited about what next year brings. We will elaborate on more of this information in early August.


Yearbooks

We have extra yearbooks for sale if you would still like to buy one. Please send $15, cash or check (made out to Link PTA), with your child tomorrow or Thursday. Thursday will be the last day that they are sold.


Last Day of School

Please remember that Thursday, the last day of school, is a regular day of school for all students. First through sixth grade students will be dismissed at 3:00. AM Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 11:10, and PM Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 3:00.


Important Dates

June 4 – Kindergarten Graduation (6:00PM)
June 5 – Last Day of School (Regular hours for K-6)
August 25 – Back to School Night (4:30-6:00PM)

Field Day Rescheduled

Posted June 2nd, 2014 by Susan Nottoli
Due to the rainy weather today, we have postponed field day until tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.  We were able to enjoy an hour of field day this morning, but have decided that it would be best not to continue today.  Students will begin field day activities around 12:30.  If you signed up to volunteer for the afternoon session, you are welcome to join us at 12:15 tomorrow.  If you are unable to help, we completely understand.

Please send your child prepared for the second half of field day activities tomorrow (gym shoes, water bottle, etc.).  Students will also need to bring a lunch.

Thank you to all of you who braved the elements and volunteered today.  We sincerely appreciate your time and flexibility throughout the morning.
