teachers is to cover the drop off times, lunch and
playground duties. We are looking for 100%
parent participation, so please sign up for a date
and time that works best for you.
Thank you in advance for your participation!

Ms. Stock’s Kindergarten has been hard at
work creating a beautiful piece of art that
will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
Please see the attached flyer for more details
on the auction for that. In the mean time
they are offering note cards with a picture
of their beautiful flag for $10 for a set of 6
cards and envelopes. We are taking orders
for these note cards through tomorrow. The
office is taking orders now, you can make
payments in cash or check, with the check
made out to Sacred Heart.
Doing spring clean up? If you come
across old Legos or karaoke
microphones, please bring them by
school. We are looking to bring
stop/start video, broadcasting, and
are investigating Lego robotics for
our CLC and need your help to get
started. So, if you have unused
Legos, Lego people, microphones, or
tripods please drop them in the
school office and we will put them to
good use! Thanks so much!

Church of the Holy Comforter, 222 Kenilworth Ave. Kenilworth
No charge, but please register at
www.TheAllianceForEC.org
High-quality iPad and iPhone apps, when used in developmentally appropriate ways,

skills. Tamara Kaldor, developmental therapist of PLAY is Work, will demonstrate how
practitioners and parents can use technology with children affected by autism spectrum
disorders (ASD), sensory processing disorders (SPD), communication disorders, learning
disabilities, and other developmental differences. Quality apps can help improve
children’s communication and learning, articulation, expressive language, language
comprehension, and ability to follow routines, make transitions, and process/express
emotions. Participants will leave the workshop with practical strategies and techniques
for using the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone with young children.
TAMARA KALDOR, M.S. is a Developmental Therapist and the Director of Play is Work™, with over a
decade of experience supporting families with children with autism (ASD), sensory processing disorder
(SPD), learning disabilities and developmental delays in Chicago. She specializes in working with children
and families to find success at home and in school. For more information, visit www.chicagoplaypro.com/.
