Kipling Playground Fundraiser and California Pizza Kitchen Contest!
Kipling is getting a new playground this summer, but we need to raise
money first!! A super easy way and fun way for us to raise money is
by dining with your family at California Pizza Kitchen (Northbrook
Court) on Thursday, February 2. The attached form must be brought to
CPK on February 2nd. CPK will not have any forms! Please print out
the attached form or look for a form in your child's backpack the week
of January 30th. You may dine any time on the 2nd, lunch or dinner.
Takeout is included!
Now here is the exciting part....CPK is running a contest. Whichever
class brings in the most forms will enjoy a pizza party at school
courtesy of CPK. So don't forget to bring in one form for each
student in your family. Write each teacher's name on a separate form.
All of the forms will be attached by your server to your bill after
you dine. At the end of the evening, CPK will tally up the forms and
see which class won! And Kipling will receive 20 percent of the total
checks from our school! It's that simple! So don't forget.. mom
doesn't need to cook February 2nd!

KIPLING “BOOKWORMS” BOOK CLUB – LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER
Attention all 2nd grade parents
Does your child love to read? Are you looking for new ways to encourage your child to enjoy books? Kipling’s “Bookworms” Book Club is a fun way for students to share ideas about popular literary fiction and to help them develop critical thinking skills.
The 2nd grade book club will meet once a week for 6 weeks on Wednesdays, February 15 – March 21, during the lunch/recess period. Each week, we will read different age-appropriate picture books with themes that facilitate discussion. Following the discussion, the students will participate in an activity that links to the book’s theme.
The cost for the book group will be the cost of five paperback picture books. The first book does not need to be purchased as it is only published in hardcover. We’ll read the book aloud together during the session. The cost for the 5 books is $35.
To register your child for a book group, please fill out the attached registration form and include a check made out to Kipling PTO. Forms and checks can be placed in the Kipling Book Club Mailbox in the lobby at school. More details will be sent out once registration is complete.
DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3.

PLEASE PLUG PEGGY KUBERT THIS WEEK VIA EMAIL!
Peggy Kubert is an amazing spirit! She is the Executive Director of Erika's Lighthouse in Winnetka. http://www.erikaslighthouse.org/ She is presenting to our group FREE of CHARGE as she is so passionate about this topic and helping parents and youth.
Peggy will be addressing these topics:
· She will focus on how to parent a moody, irritable adolescent
· She will explain how to tell if what your child is experiencing is within the realm of ?normal? emotions and if not, how to address it with them and where and how to find help
· She will focus on how to decide if what you are experiencing with your teen is something that you need to address because it seems more extreme -- lasting more than 2 weeks, looking more like signs of depression rather than just sadness or irritability which all teens experience from time to time.
Some interesting facts to share:
· Is your child feeling tired? Sad? Down? Are they easily distracted? Do they have a hard time getting motivated to do things that used to excite them? Do they feel all alone? However they describe it, it feels bad. And if they have been feeling bad for a long time, it could be depression.
· It is estimated that between 15% and 20% of our children will suffer from at least one depressive episode before they reach adulthood. Many suffer in silence.
· "Parents frequently turn to other parents to seek information for their children... pediatricians, preschools, coaches, etc. Yet, when something really serious, such as childhood depression, comes along, parents often fear stigma, and attempt to handle things alone," explains Barb Williams, one of the founding members of ELH. "Consequently, the child and family suffer from lack of information and may not receive the appropriate help."
PROGRAM NEXT WEEK! FEB. 7TH!!!! Peggy Kubert's The Changing Moods of Adolescence: What's Normal & What's Not is our next Community Wide event in 3 weeks! Tues., Feb. 7th @ 1:30pm beginning with a 1pm reception with Amy Bricker & Peggy Kubert at North Shore Unitarian Church. Flyer attached. Please help us spread the word by posting copies of the flyer around town and forwarding to your personal email list!
