March 22, 2017On March 22, one of our first graders, Brooklynn, passed away unexpectedly. Brooklynn was a student in Ms. Briscoe’s classroom. She was a friend to many and shared her time at Mary Endres with her 2nd grade brother, Noah and 4th grade sister, Alyssa. All of us at Mary Endres and District 200 are saddened by this tragedy.
March 6, 2017Love to Read Week is a long-standing tradition in District 200, sharing the love of reading with our students.

Our Love to Read day for volunteers this year will be Friday, March 24th. Sign-up will be primarily electronic, but those who are unable to use the online system are welcome to contact us for help in volunteering.

January 10, 2017Students will be challenged to read (or be read to) 30 minutes EACH day for 12 days! This is an exciting way to get them in the habit of daily reading AND to build their confidence as young readers. Students will record their minutes in their reading log. Students will get sponsors to support their reading. Encourage your students to get some sponsors…they will ALL love to get rewarded with new books! 100% of the pledges they collect is used to get new Usborne books for them, their school, and help field trip costs: 50% to students, 20% to the School Library, 30% to the PTO for fieldtrips! Students will turn everything in to you on January 23 – January 30. Please place in this envelope and send to the office. You do not need to count the minutes or the money. I will take care of everything! ☺ $100 Challenge! Students bringing in $100 or more will receive a FREE box of Activity Cards (many to choose from) PLUS $50 in books. Tuesday, February 7 students will pick out their books to order (times TBA). On Thursday, March 23, students will receive their books and awards!
