Message from the Principal

Greeting, Families!

It feels great to kick-off the week with a 70 degree day! It looks like Spring is finally here as flowers have begun to emerge from the soil around town.


To get our week started, here are a few important notes:


  • With the onset of warm weather, many families have begun to bring their dogs on the walk to and from school. Please remember, for the safety of all students and staff, dogs are not permitted on school grounds. This includes carrying dogs on and off the playground.
  • We will be wrapping up all PARCC testing on Tuesday, March 17th for all 3rd-5th grade students. If your child was absent this for any portion of the test, we will be scheduling make-ups throughout the week.
  • We hope you can join us this Wednesday night for our special event, The Benefits of Being Bilingual presented by Dr. Zitlali Morales. As Komensky embarks on our journey to bring dual language to our community, and show our commitment to preserving many of our students' home languages, we invite you to join us for this ongoing discussion. Child care and refreshments will be available.
  • If you know of any soon-to-be kindergarten students in the community, please help us get the word out that Kindergarten registration is underway for the 2015-16 school year. Please call the school office at 708-795-2342 to make an appointment.


Wishing you all a fantastic week!
