Mrs. Cumpata's Cosmic Communication - 11.3.23

Good Afternoon Kildeer Families,

It has been a busy week at Kildeer.  Our Kildeer Cougars began the week by spending time with their Buddy Classroom.  It is always great to see the positive connections being made between older and younger students.

On Tuesday, all of our students had a wonderful time celebrating Halloween with a snowy parade and class party!  Thank you to our party planning parents and PTO volunteers for making this a Halloween to remember.  

With the changing weather, here's a friendly reminder to ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and going outside for recess. 

As we end our first trimester of learning, I want to say thank you for your continued support and partnership.

Have a WONDERful weekend!

Mrs. Karen Cumpata

REPEAT *Lightspeed Systems*

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As a part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring a safe and secure online environment for our students, we are excited to announce that we will be offering the Lightspeed Systems Weekly Student Online Activity Report to all parents and guardians of our school community.

You will receive an email from District 96 that will enable you to register for the Weekly Student Online Activity Report. Once you receive the email from our school district you will have the ability to register. Simply choose to register and follow the prompts to sign up for the Weekly Student Online Activity Report.

The Lightspeed Systems Weekly Student Online Activity Report is a valuable tool that will allow you to gain insights into your child's web history while using the school's iPad. This report will provide an overview of the websites visited by your child while using the iPad. The report is designed to promote transparency and communication between parents and the school, fostering a safer digital learning experience for our students.

The weekly activity report is only accessible to parents and guardians registered for this service. It will not be shared with any external parties, and the data collected will be used solely for the purpose of improving the online safety measures at our school. Parents/guardians will not start receiving weekly reports until their child has at least a week's worth of browsing data.

Lightspeed Parent/Student Enrollment Email Schedule: Families will begin to receive LightSpeed Parent report emails from Lightspeed. This email correspondence will allow you to enroll and begin receiving your child’s reports from Lightspeed for the following grades on or near the following dates below.

  • October 23, 2023 (8th Grade)

  • October 30, 2023 (7th Grade)

  • December 4, 2023 (2nd Grade, 1st Grade, Kindergarten)

Please note that while we encourage parents to use this tool to stay involved in their child's online journey, it is essential to have open conversations with your child about their internet use. Establishing trust and communication around digital practices will enhance the overall safety and well-being of our students.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Weekly Student Online Activity Report or need assistance with the registration process, please feel free to reach out to the IT department at [email protected].

Thank you for your continued support in creating a secure and nurturing learning environment for our students. 

REPEAT *Family Reading Night*

Our annual Family Reading Night takes place on Thursday, November 16 from 6:30-7:30pm. Our goal is to provide families with a fun night out where you can experience two different rounds of literacy-related activities (i.e. flashlight reading, building challenges, arts and crafts activity) in partnership with Student Council. This year we are encouraging families to wear comfy clothes or pajamas to Family Reading Night.  While walk-ins are welcome, please consider using THIS Google Form to RSVP if you would like to attend, as it will help us plan the evening activities. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
