Jane Addams Events and PTA News

Thank you all for coming to Jane Addams for our Parent Teacher Conferences in November. It was wonderful to celebrate all the ways your students are growing and learning! If you have not visited in-person or virtually to have this scheduled conference, please contact your child's teacher prior to Winter Break.

It is hard to believe the Winter Break is quickly approaching. We wanted to remind you about our upcoming days off. District 15 begins Winter Break on December 23, 2021. Our first day back to school is scheduled for January 10, 2022. We also wanted to remind you that there is no school on Monday, January 17 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In addition, the day after is a Teacher Institute Day. As such, there is no school on Tuesday, January 18th. We wanted to provide these days to you early so you can plan in advance for your family.

The Jane Addams PTA would also like to inform you of the upcoming PTA meetings:

  • Wednesday, December 15th at 7:00 via zoom.

As a gentle reminder, the PTA accepts you membership all year long:

Dual Language Information

Dual Language parents had the opportunity to learn and experience specific lessons during our Dual Language Curriculum Night. Thank you to all of our parents for your support and for attending this event. If you were not able to attend, please feel free to review the slides linked here.

Additionally, as our students learn math in Spanish in our Dual Language program, an English digital text is available to you upon request to further support your child at home. Please feel free to let your classroom teacher know if you would like access to the digital math text in English at home, and we can add it to your student's account.
