Dear Parents,

 

My name is Bobby Plonka and I am the Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach at Suder. As I have been getting to know the school and community, several parents have expressed a need for more information about a few literacy-related issues. Here are some general explanations, resources and tips that address literacy related issues both inside and outside of the classroom.

 

This is a lot of information that I have provided. I will delve deeper into these topics during our Parent Literacy Education Session (details to follow). Thank you for taking the time to invest in learning about literacy development. I hope that this is informative and helpful in guiding your child's growth. 

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Plonka

Spirit Week

May 16-20

This year, we are combining our celebrations. Each day we have a special “dress-up” theme. We have several authors coming to visit our students, special presentations during our Peace Circle, the Scholastic Book Fair, Family Arts & Literacy Night, and culminating events for parents and children on Friday.

We hope to see you join us on Thursday evening and Friday morning!

Literacy Week 2014-2015

 

Alex Kotlowitz spoke to our Middle School after they read "There Are No Children Here", a bestselling non-fiction work that documented the lives of two students who attended Suder and chronicled the struggles of an impoverished family on Chicago's West-side. 

 

With the help of Suder's Library volunteers and families, Amy Krouse Rosenthal visited to conduct workshops with students and sign copies of her books.
