Parent-Teacher conferences are being scheduled by teachers until December 4th. Hopefully parents are able to find a time to meet with their child's classroom teacher to discuss student growth and progress. If you are having trouble scheduling a conference with a teacher please call the front office for assistance, 630-894-9200.
Next week is Thanksgiving break. Remote learning will resume on Monday, November 30th. Please remember the 3 W's even during this time away from school. The faster the positivity rate goes down the faster we get back to in-person learning.
During this season of thanks DuJardin School is so grateful for the wonderful students and families that we are able to serve on a daily basis. Our hope this holiday season is that everyone stays safe and healthy. Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family!
Mrs. Frattinger's Post
My Thanksgiving wish for you all is that you take a moment to see what's only in front of you at that moment and nothing else. To simply take on what is right there. Rather than saying, "We'll never get this day back," I find myself wishing it were over for a hope of a better tomorrow. I've come to realize that I need to embrace all that this day brings and simply be thankful for the blanket of kindness from my friends, family, and colleagues, but most importantly, the simple love from our students.
