PICTURE DAY IS COMING!!
After the Parent Orientation, all parents and guardians are encouraged to attend the first PTA meeting from 7:30-8:30PM in the Plum Grove Jr. High library. We also hope you consider joining the PTA this year to support the school community. Last year, we raised over $4,000 for the year’s programs, which included two dances, staff appreciation events, 7th and 8th grade breakfasts, and the WOW event. We hope to do even more this year, and we would love your help to accomplish our goals! Your membership fees allow the PTA to enhance your child’s school and bring in fun and educational activities/events.
Each year new members need to enroll and returning members need to re-enroll in the PTA. Please use this link and complete the form. By joining the PTA you are not committing to any obligations."

It is extremely helpful if students know their street names as the routes are based on their street names.
We want to take a moment to remind parents on procedures and our district practice for a student absence. If your child is going to be absent from school you may call our school's attendance line at 847-963-7601. We understand that students occasionally may be absent from school for valid reasons: for example, illness, death in the immediate family, family emergency, observance of a religious holiday, situations beyond the control of the student, mental or behavioral health reasons, or circumstances that cause parents reasonable concern for the safety or health of the student. Students who are absent for these reasons will be given an opportunity to make up missed school work. Taking students out of school for vacations is discouraged and is considered an unexcused absence. Staff are not required to provide work for such absences.
