We would like to welcome you back for the 2016-2017 school year. We hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year. We anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of learning through the arts, technology and engaging classrooms. We feel extremely fortunate to be working with such exceptional groups of students, families, and staff members.
School begins on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 at 8:10 a.m. and classroom assignments again will be posted on campus that morning. Breakfast begins at 7:50 am. Please make sure that you have completed your child’s registration before the first day of school. Online registration has been over and will close on August 9th. Our first bell will ring at 8:00am with the second bell at 8:05am to signal the start of the school day. Dismissal will be at 2:00 p.m. for the first 5 days. The first full day of school (8:10-3:00) will be Wednesday, August 31st.
We believe that strong community-school relationships are crucial to academic success. Without parent involvement, our school could not offer the programming and experiences that make us an outstanding school and we appreciate this commitment that every student will learn to their full potential in core and encore classes. We are prepared to offer time and support as needed to make this a reality for all. We ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging your child to read for pleasure daily, communicate with your child’s teacher and monitor homework and progress, asking them to share what they learned each day at school.
We look forward to continuing our work together as we support the Park Forest-Chicago Heights community. I hope you enjoy the final days of summer!
