Happy New Year, Happy New Decade! Here’s to a healthy, successful, and prosperous 2020 at DuJardin! A reminder to parents that students will be lining up outdoors and recess will take place outside unless the temperature drops below 10 degrees Fahrenheit including the wind chill.
Fifth grade students had a terrific time during their three-day outdoor education experience at Lorado Taft this week. If you follow DuJardin on Twitter @D13Jaguars or @djloradotaft13 you were treated to numerous photos, videos and updates. Thanks to the DuJardin PTO for its financial support of this wonderful program, which included room and board payment for the DuJardin staff members and student scholarships. Thanks to Mrs. Rizza, Mrs. Bevente, Mrs. CrossMartinez, Mrs. Harsila, Mrs.Lents, Mrs. Burritt, Mrs. Beebe and Mr. Wojcicki for their time, effort, and energy over a three day period for teaching and supervising DuJardin fifth graders. And thanks to the students for representing DuJardin School so well during their stay on the Taft campus. DuJardin staff received many wonderful compliments about the students from the Taft staff throughout the three day experience. A great time was had by all! See photos on Twitter @djloradotaft13 and @D13Jaguars!

2019-2020 Illinois Parent Survey
Dear Parent, The Illinois State Board of Education invites you to participate in a school improvement survey for parents. In this survey, you will be asked to provide feedback about DuJardin School. Please consider your child’s current experience at school (i.e., 2019-2020 school year). This survey is designed to help school and district leadership improve their understanding of the parent/school relationship.
All responses are completely anonymous. Responses to anonymous surveys cannot be traced back to the respondent. Additionally, your responses will be combined with other parents from DuJardin School and summarized in a school report to further protect your anonymity. Your participation in this survey is voluntary and you have the right to discontinue participation at any point.
If you have more than one (1) child, you may elect to participate multiple times.
The 5Essentials Parent Survey is now open. Parents are encouraged to complete this survey. Please use the following link to access the parent survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

Announcing a new Theatre Group - The Mackenzie Project
Theatre has always been a place of inclusion: a safe place that welcomes anyone who wants to perform, play, build, design, direct and hang out and make friends. What we are doing with the Mackenzie Project is inviting students in grades 3 -12, with special needs and without, who are interested in working together to put on a show at the end of the year. The performance will feature students with special needs in the starring roles and be the leaders of crews, while being supported by student peer mentors. For more details go to:
