Learning Look In
Justin Dietz will be the DJ for the 8th grade dance. Chippewa is grateful for him generously donating his time and talents!
Maira Ochoa has generously volunteered to capture the 8th grade dance for us! Please think about her for your next event or family photo session!!
A Hardy Party is generously donating balloons and decor for the 8th grade dance!
This Des Plaines based company offers beautiful 6’ yard poles (for grad, birthday or otherwise) for $39.99 plus tax. They last a long time and can be brought inside too.
Text or call Diane at 773-569-1208 if you're interested in buying some for your own grad or birthday party.
Girls on the Run
The GOTR girls ran the 5K on Tuesday and they did a great job considering it was also raining! They made the best of it and finished the race with smiles on their faces! Congratulations to all the runners, we had a great season with you all!
From your Coaches: Mrs. Cohen and Ms. Cichowicz

8th Grade Promotion Information
- The last day of school for eighth graders will be Friday, May 27
- The 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony will be May 31, 6:00 p.m. at the Maine West Spectator Gym.
- We will be giving each student 6 tickets for the promotion ceremony. Please call the office if you need more.
If you haven't returned the information about and fee for the Promotion Ceremony gowns, you still have time. The cost of a new gown is $20.00, but families and grads are welcome to use a red Chippewa gown that an older sibling used in a previous promotion ceremony.
These letters, on blue paper, were sent home 2 weeks ago and there are copies attached below. If you're on free lunch, you don't have to pay $20 for the gown. And, if you live in the Maine East/West choice area, we need the response form indicating which school your child will be attending. Please call the office if you have any questions.
