Staff Spotlight

Meet Kathryn Swarczewski! Kathryn has been teaching at SLC for 22 years. Currently in the Red room, Kathryn's favorite thing about working at SLC is building meaningful relationships with the children and their families as well as the supportive administrative staff. Outside of SLC, Kathryn enjoys reading, working out, spending time with her family and dog and cheering on the Chicago Cubs.
Fun Fact: Kathryn's sister Donna Oline is also a teacher at SLC!

Thank you!

Thank you to Board member, Narmaly Knight for the delicious spread today! The staff enjoyed Haitian hot cocoa and yummy fruit. Such a treat as we conclude Teacher Appreciation Week!

Safety Reminders-parking lot

During drop-off and pick-up please take special care while driving and parking in the FPCE lot. Please drive slowly and carefully since there are small children that may be hard to see. There is no parking allowed in the Handicapped Spots unless you have the appropriate signage in your window--do not use those spots for drop-off/pick-up even if it's for a short time. Thank you for your cooperation!
In Partnership,
Chrissy C., Katie, Kiki & Chrissy P.
