Aiming to Keep You Informed

August 31, 2018

From the Office

This week, students participated in safety day drills on both Thursday and Friday. During safety days, students and staff practice our emergency procedures for Severe Weather, Evacuation, and Lockdown events. We were joined by members of the Bloomingdale Fire and Police Departments for our Evacuation and Lockdown drills. Both the Police and Fire departments were very impressed with the cooperation and response that our students showed when moving to safe locations during each of our drills! The safety of our students is our top priority. Therefore, we will continue to practice our emergency response procedures throughout the school year.

Curriculum Night

Curriculum Night will be held on Thursday, September 6th from 6:00-8:00pm. Parents are invited to follow their child's schedule and visit classrooms between 6:30 and 8:00pm. We encourage parents to either bring a photo of their child's schedule on their phones or bring the printed copy that will be sent home with students on September 5th.

You're Invited! In addition, parents are invited to join Mr. Larsson and Mrs. Gabany in the Gym starting at 6:00pm for an update on instructional practices that will be implemented starting with the 2018-2019 school year. Following the large group presentation, parents will locate their child's first period classroom and follow their child's schedule between 6:30 - 8:00pm.

Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
