Grades and Report Cards - As a reminder students will receive a grade of a pass or incomplete for the 4th quarter.  In order to earn a pass the student will need to have participated in remote learning or turn in a packet of work that they got from a teacher, from the mail, or picked up at one of the meal sites.  Due to this unusual situation all students will be promoted to the next grade level.  We will work with all students next year right where they are and help them catch up if needed.  Don’t worry, this is what we do!  


Yearbook Update - This year’s yearbook will not be available until the fall.  We will fulfill orders at that time and sell the remaining yearbooks to any family that would like one.  


Spirit Card Sales - As you may remember, the PTA was unable to complete the Spirit Card Fundraiser.  Students missed out on the opportunity to get prizes and earn a limo trip.  However, we do have a limited number Spirit Cards for sale.  You can purchase them when you pick up your student belongings.  They will be for sale for $20 each.  All proceeds will go toward our playground equipment fund.  


Summer Reading Opportunity - State Representative Tony McCombie is once again sponsoring a summer reading contest.  Use this link to sign up.  

Summer STEAM Camp - Northern Illinois University also has summer opportunities.  You can find them here.

6th Grade Orientation - Families of 5th graders, here is some information about 6th grade orientation.  


As always, I appreciate your support.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.  Take care and stay safe.
