Hi Ivy Families,
Over the past four days I have been studying Race, Equity and Leadership at Harvard University in Boston. To say that this experience was life changing, would be an understatement. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences through conversations and new initiatives to help create an even more equitable learning community at Ivy Hill and beyond!
I am also excited that on Monday, we will be hosting students from Japan. The students are from Shitara and Tsugu Middle School. Both of these schools were ones I visited on my trip to Japan earlier this year, so it will be great to reconnect with the students and show them around Ivy Hill!
Be Courageous, Be Kind
Ivy Hill Food Drive
Ivy Hill PTA is holding a FOOD DRIVE the week of May 20th-24th.
Please donate non-perishable food items like peanut butter, pasta, rice, canned veggies, fruits, meats and fish, cooking oil, crackers, cereal, soup, etc. Kids should bring items to their classrooms and parents can drop off in the box in front of the office.
Remember that hunger doesn’t take a summer break!!
Let’s stock up the Wheeling Food Pantry stores!!
Ivy Gives Back!
Bernie's Book Drive
We collected 1600 books this year, surpassing our goal of 1500! Below is what Bernie's wrote:
Your 1,600 books goes a long way. These books you graciously donated enable us to serve 133 children with 12 books this year. You have gotten us one step closer to our goal: distribute 3.6 million books to the 300,000 children in need throughout the Chicagoland area.
We collected 156 pairs of shoes! These shoes will be distributed to victims of natural disasters around the United States and the world.
Thanks to our wonderful PTA for organizing these fantastic drives and thanks to all of you who donated to make a difference!
