Students in kindergarten - 5th grade took the STAR Early Literacy (kindergarten only), STAR Math and STAR reading earlier this month. Those assessment results are now available for parents to see in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The Parent Portal is also where all student report cards will be located for parents to view on June 7th.
|Medication Pick Up - A Note from Mrs. Beckman|
** MEDICATION PICK UP REMINDER **
If your child has medication in the nurse's office, a parent will need to pick it up by the last day of school: Monday, June 7th by noon. The only medication a student can transport home in a backpack is their inhaler. Any unclaimed medications will be discarded.

|Summer at Copeland Manor|
The Copeland office will be open Monday through Thursday in June and will be closed during the month of July. The office will reopen on August 2nd. Any family wishing to register a student for school is invited to contact the District 70 Registrar, Cristina DiStefano, at the Educational Resource Center located at 1381 W. Lake Street (847-362-0695).
We are so fortunate to have every classroom teacher returning in the fall. At this time, all in-person classroom teachers will remain in the same grade level she/he is teaching currently.
Each year, you will hear our plea that families register early so that we can make accurate staffing plans for the fall. This year, this is so important -- especially in kindergarten. We are very close to adding a 4th section. If you have an incoming kindergarten student, please register for school. If you know of anyone who has yet to register, please encourage that family to do the same.
One new teacher to join the staff is Mrs. Kassebaum. Becca Kassebaum is currently a special education teacher at Butterfield School who is working with students in small classrooms. Mrs. Kassebaum joins the Copeland staff in the fall as a Math Interventionist. Mrs. Kassebaum attended kindergarten at Copeland, and is very excited to work with students to support them in the area of math. She will be an excellent addition to our team.
THANK YOU to the teachers who taught students virtually this year. Mrs. Marcum, Mrs. Sieks, Mrs. Thompson, Mrs. Parkhurst, and Mrs. Chambers have all served Copeland students and their families providing students with educational experiences through Google Meets. We thank these teachers for maintaining connections and standards in this new way and providing families the option that worked best for them. We couldn't have made it through this year without you!
