Harper Promise Presentation for 8th Graders
We were able to secure Sean Warren-Crouch, the Harper Promise Scholarship Manager, to come talk to our 8th grade students about how they can attend Harper College for free after they graduate from Palatine High School.
The idea for this assembly originated from one of our 8th grade teachers, Stacey Schilke, after she realized many of her 8th grade students were unaware of this amazing opportunity to go to college and obtain an Associate's Degree tuition free.
We will have an assembly this Wednesday, May 18th in the GYM from 10:30 - 11:15 am (5th period). We will escort the 8th grade students to the gym directly from lunch and the 5th period 8th grade teachers will report to the GYM to help supervise the students. After the assembly, the students will head to their lockers and then to their 6th period classes.
This is such an important message our soon to be freshman need to hear so they can be motivated to do well in high school and to show up everyday to qualify for the Harper Promise, which will continue to help our students past High School graduation.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Mr. Reyes firstname.lastname@example.org
8th Grade Chromebook Collection
Dear 8th Grade Students and Parents,
As the end of the school year approaches, please begin making preparations to return the District 15 issued Chromebook and charger. These items will be collected on Tuesday, May 31st. Each of you will keep the protective case.
Please prepare for the Chromebook collection day in advance by:
Bringing your Chromebook to the Library if it is damaged or not working properly so that it can be evaluated and sent in for repairs;
Saving any material that you have created in your District 15 Google account that you would be interested in keeping on a personal flash drive or use Google Take Out.
Removing any stickers that you have added to the Chromebook.
In the event that the Chromebook or charger has been damaged, you may be assessed a fee for repair or replacement.
If you were issued a hotspot, please bring the hotspot to return as well. Hotspots should be returned to the school. Hotspots will be deactivated and no longer work on June 6th, 2022.
THIS WEEK!!! Moving District 15 Forward
We are delighted to announce that the Moving 15 Forward initiative is going on the road this spring!
Board of Education President Lisa Scuzupaj and Dr. Laurie Heinz will share the specifics of the proposal and seek feedback from stakeholders across our communities. We also will be meeting with other organizations and groups within the communities we serve.
At the presentation, you can expect to receive an overview of the Moving 15 Forward plan with a particular focus on why this comprehensive plan is focused on repairing and restoring our facilities, updating learning spaces, improving student transitions, as well as providing full-day kindergarten, enhanced educational opportunities, and the chance to learn at near-neighborhood schools. In addition, each presentation will include detailed information specific to the host school(s) that evening. All sessions will include time for questions and answers.
We urge you to attend the session dedicated to your school(s) if possible, but you are welcome to attend any session that fits your schedule.
We hope that you are able to join us in person. If you are unable to attend, please visit the Moving 15 Forward website to view the proposed plan details, videos, and a Frequently Asked Questions page.
We are so pleased to be taking Moving 15 Forward on the road this spring. We value your feedback and look forward to sharing more with you about this exciting initiative.
