Looking for PTO Family Dinner Volunteers and Donations

Posted Dec 14, 2014 | Category: Family Dinner

Every year at our PTO Family Dinner, we have a wonderful raffle to raise additional funds for our PTO programs.  The dinner is in February this year, and we’re looking for volunteers to serve on the raffle committee to solicit and collect donations of raffle items and help coordinate the event during the dinner.

We are also looking for raffle items to be donated!  If you own a business and have a product or service to offer, please consider making a donation.  We can provide you with a receipt for tax purposes.

Please contact Romy Vargas-Gil at missromy@aol.com or Carol Barlow at carol377@att.net for more information.

December First Friday Feature

Posted Dec 5, 2014 | Category: Friday Feature

1st friday
December 5, 2014

Welcome to this month’s First Friday Feature, where PTO delves into a special topic of interest. It’s our goal to help parents, teachers and students work together to achieve success. This month, we want to familiarize you with the great resources our local libraries offer to help our students (and you, too!).

Your printer is on the fritz and your child’s report needs to be printed and turned in the next day. What to do?? Did you know that the public libraries in Riverside, Lyons, and Brookfield all offer wireless printing services – you can send a document from your home computer to the library for pick up. There is a small fee per page (more for color printing).

The Riverside and Brookfield libraries also have all the hard cover text books used at Hauser. If your child forgot his/her text book at school, they are available for use at the library (not for checking out). Just see the Youth Services librarians for access.

In addition, there are amazing online databases available with a library card at the Riverside, Brookfield, North Riverside, and Lyons libraries. For example, there is a science reference database, and a Chicago Tribune database. There is even a biography database, which is more reliable than Wikipedia and has links to actual online books! To access these and many more resources, go to the “Online Resources” section on the front page of the library websites.

All libraries also have computers available for students to use at the library – some even IPads and laptops that can be checked out. Depending on the library, you may need a library card to access these resources. Ask the librarian for details!
