For the last 3 weeks Ms. Host's first graders at Shabbona have been traveling around the world learning about different holiday traditions. They have traveled to: Saudi Arabia, India, Israel, Russia, Mexico, Australia, Sweden, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, France, England, China, and Canada. Students are pointing to their favorite country that we traveled to in their passport.
Good Morning Shabbona Families: If you feel you qualify for free or reduced lunch, please remember to fill out the application. This year the state has extended free lunches to all students and this has resulted in a reduction of parents filling out the official forms. Our federal Title 1 funding is based on these official numbers. At this time, with the numbers of applications we have, our funding for next year may be reduced. You may fill out this information in Family Access on-line (Skyward), or you may fill out a paper form (see links below). Applications were included in lunches on November 20th. Please pass this information along to any parent who may need it. Approval for this year will extend into the first month of school next year so there is no gap between school years. If you need help, please call our office, 815-929-4700. If you already filled one out for this year, you do not have to do it again. Thank you for your support!
