A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

As the school year winds down, it is hard to believe how fast the year went. I hope you enjoy the summer break! Before we close for the year, here are a couple of things to take care of:  

Registration: Registration for 2019–2020 is open online. All registration must be online using a snapcode. Fees are $115.00 per student. Fees are not due until August 5. Please try to have your student(s) registered by the end of May. We will not place students on a class list until registration is complete. We will post class lists on June 30. If you have any questions, please call the office at (815) 926.1689. 

End of Year: Please make sure students return all textbooks and library books to the school prior to the last day of attendance. Library books are due on May 17. Tentatively, the last day of attendance is on Friday, May 31 with a 1:50 p.m. dismissal. Send an extra, sturdy bag with your student on May 30 to carry home all of their accumulated belongings.

Summer: Please continue to work with students over the summer on academic topics. The public library has a great summer reading program. Keep your students reading. Do math in fun ways: add/subtract/multiply numbers you see when driving. Have students add mileage if you go on a family trip. Send students on a scavenger hunt outside for science. Students can keep a daily journal for writing. Students can help you measure for recipes. Maintain a bedtime and wake up schedule. All of these will benefit your student.
