Shabonee School Supplies

3rd & 4th graders only

Can you believe that it’s already time to start thinking about next year? Order school supplies for your student today and save yourself the hassle of trying to find everything before the next school year starts. Plus, this is less expensive than buying everything separately! Your student’s supplies will be waiting on their desk on the first day of school - how easy is that! Oh and don’t forget, order the pack for the grade they’ll be starting in August.

The PTA is thrilled to be bringing a new event to our school.  Please join us for our first ever healthy minds event at Shabonee on April 18 from 6:15-7:45pm. We have invited Lani Gerszonovicz to speak and run this session. She will be working with you and your student in all things mindful! The focus of this session will be to discuss anxiety and how we as parents and students can recognize and work through it.  You can learn more about Lani here!

  • We are asking for you to RSVP HERE if you plan to attend. Please help us get an idea as to how many people to expect so we can better prepare. We hope to see you there!!

Community Action Together for Children's Health

  • CATCH has graciously provided Shabonee PTA with the amazing resource below.  There have been many instances of trauma over this past year, and a lot of us are looking for guidance (for our kids or ourselves). We’ll CATCH you- Trauma & Grief resource   
  • In addition, as it has been very difficult to find counseling locations with availability for new patients, we are happy to share that Sound Mind Counseling has just hired 3 therapists who have immediate openings for new patients!

    Please contact Erica Leibrant (owner)
    Mention CATCH!
  • CATCH provides free resources and opportunities for parents who have children struggling with mental health and invites them to attend and/or listen to experts from within the field.
