The PTA will continue to update our website and send weekly newsletters during the school closure, but please note that several dates and events are now tentative. It will always be our intention to follow district guidelines, and we will remain in close contact with school and district administrators. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the committee chair for any event, or PTA President Christa Sowa directly.
In this uncertain time, there have been many questions on how individuals and families can help. The Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center shared these suggestions:
- The Kiwanis Club of Glen Ellyn donates weekly snack packs that are sent home with students to provide supplemental food over the weekend. GECRC will continue to facilitate that donation in the coming weeks. To support Kiwanis’s efforts to provide supplemental food to students in our community, please reach out via their website.
- The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry is another source of support for those experiencing food insecurity. They provide both appointment and walk-in opportunities. Donations of food and volunteer time, as well as monetary donations will benefit many local families. To learn more, please visit their website.
Churchill has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House on a Community Service Project in honor of Katie Rice, a Churchill Parent who recently lost her battle with cancer. You can help by donating the tabs you pull to open soda, soup and other aluminum cans. The funds generated from our Pop Tab Program help support RMH programs. There are collection houses in each classroom, so please send them in with your student. Click here for more information.
Get going, and collect all the box tops you can! Remember, 1 box top = $0.10, so 15 box tops = $1.50. See how quickly the money can add up! Churchill has approximately 700 students, so if everyone brings in 10 box tops, we can earn $700! Remember to label the bag or envelope with your child’s name when sending Box Tops to school to be eligible for prizes!
Look for the Box Top label on your favorite products – what an easy way to support the school!
