Have a Great Summer!

Have a Great Summer!
Dear Carman-Buckner Elementary School Parents,
As we approach the end of the 22-23 school year, I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering support and collaboration throughout this remarkable journey. The dedication and involvement of our incredible parents have played an integral role in making this academic year a success.
Over the past year, we have witnessed countless achievements and milestones that would not have been possible without the collective efforts of our students, teachers, staff, and, of course, you, our valued parents. From academic triumphs to artistic endeavors, athletic victories to personal growth, Carman-Buckner Elementary School has truly thrived as a vibrant hub of learning and inspiration.
As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming school year, I would like to emphasize the paramount importance of attendance for the 23-24 academic year. Consistent attendance lays the foundation for academic success and provides your child with invaluable opportunities to engage, grow, and learn. We kindly request your continued commitment to ensuring regular attendance, as it has a profound impact on your child's overall educational experience.
I also wanted to inform you that there is still an opportunity for students to enroll in our enriching summer school program. If your child could benefit from additional academic support or wants to explore new subjects during the summer break, please don't hesitate to contact Ms. Lichtenstein at 224-303-1564. Summer school presents a valuable chance for students to bridge any gaps, strengthen their skills, and embrace continuous learning.
Furthermore, we strongly encourage all students to engage in summer reading at home. Reading is a fundamental skill that contributes to cognitive development, vocabulary expansion, and critical thinking abilities. By encouraging your child to read regularly during the summer, you will foster a lifelong love of learning and set them up for success in the years to come.
We are also excited to announce the availability of seats in our STARS Summer Camp, which will run from June 5th to June 29th, starting at 12:00 noon and concluding at 3:30 PM. This fun-filled program offers a wide range of engaging activities and valuable learning experiences. If you would like to your child to participate, please email Mr. Mike Gonzalez at [email protected]. Spaces are limited, so be sure to secure a spot for your child as soon as possible.
Moreover, Carman-Buckner Elementary School greatly values the active involvement of parents and guardians in our school community. We rely on dedicated volunteers to support various events, activities, and initiatives throughout the year. If you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer for the upcoming 23-24 school year, please contact Ms. Hughes at 224-413-5510. Your contribution and participation will make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students.
Please note that during summer school, our main office will be temporarily relocated to Door #16 due to construction at the front office area. If you have any questions or need to reach us, please visit us at Door 16.
Lastly, as the summer break approaches, I wish each and every one of you a relaxing vacation filled with joy, laughter, and quality time with your loved ones. May this time rejuvenate and energize you for the exciting adventures that lie ahead in the coming year.
Thank you once again for your unwavering support and partnership. Together, we will continue to nurture a thriving educational environment where our students can flourish and achieve their full potential.
Warmest regards,
Mr. Robert C. Silva, Principal
Carman-Buckner Elementary School
