    Please have your child turn on their iPad as soon as possible.  Please have your child log into their Clever account and make sure there are not any device issues.  Report all issues to the helpdesk as soon as possible.

    Student Attendance: 

    September 8th will be the first day of school for our students. Students will log onto their homeroom Zoom at 8am. Please check your child’s Seesaw Homeroom class for this information. If your child is unable to be online at 8:00 every day, parents should contact principals if they need flexibility or accommodations on checking in and completing work during  the school day.  

     

    If your child is sick, our normal attendance procedures are in place. Parents will be required to call the attendance hotline (708-364-4440) to report an absence.

Mission Statement

PBIS Recognition

  • Silver Level Recipient for PBIS Implementation

    Honored for School-wide PBIS Implementation

    We have recently been recognized by the Midwest PBIS Network the Silver level for our work toward fully implementing a school-wide framework that, according to national research, leads to improved student outcomes.

     

    By establishing this framework, we increase consistency of effective instruction, build staff knowledge and skills so they can support all learners, use data to proactively identify and provide support for students, and create a culture that supports stronger relationships with students and their families.

     

    This builds a strong foundation, so students gain the skills needed to graduate ready for college or a career!
