All the new access points have been installed and are operating. Due to our fiscally responsible tech committee, we finished phase one BELOW budget! Our second phase is in full swing. In June and July, we purchased 25 additional iPads, 30 additional chromebooks, and a management system. With the additional technology supporting our curriculum, teachers will engage students to develop 21st Century learning skills. The technology allows students to do more innovative learning and blend computer-related learning activities into our curriculum.

Did you know... With all of our fundraising and your help, we were able to raise $158,000 throughout the year!!!! This supplements our operation costs and allows us to stay on budget. These fundraisers include the grand raffle, our spring gala, track a thon, benefit nights, recycle rally, etc. So every little bit helps. Who would have thought eating a cheesy beef helps to keep the QR budget under control?!?

Each year QR is allocated a small amount of money from District 59 that can be used to support health/safety. This year, we used a portion of the funds to purchase a subscription to Project Wisdom. Ms. McGinn reads a project wisdom message over the PA every morning. This is read to build and educate a child’s character. Please visit https://www.projectwisdom.com/ERS/OurApproach.asp for more information. Stayed tuned for more “Did You Know” through the week!!

Did You Know... QR received a grant to install solar panels on our school roof. You can see them if you look closely above door 7. As part of the requirements for the grant, we are holding a “Solarbration” on Monday, April 30. Mrs. Runge, Mrs. Maldonado, Miss Ragauskis, and Miss Ragusin have been putting together the activities that will take place during the day. Hopefully there is a bit more sunshine than we’ve had?? These solar panels will be an invaluable tool for our teachers to supplement their curriculum from preschool all the way through 8th!!!! Visit our website, https://www.qrschool.org/ for more information. It’s in the home page!!!
