Office of the Principal, Dr. Whaley
It’s so hard to believe that 2019 is almost over. We celebrate the continuation of our STEAM lab, our continued collaboration with the LINKS Program, our recommitment with the Partnership for Resilience, through Governors State University and our new work with the Thoughtful Classroom framework. Finally we are excited that parents have partnered with us to provide instructional support to our teachers through the Parent Mentor Program, through Governors State University.
It is our goal that we finish the year strong as we work to build on the skills and strategies that our students have learned so far. We will continue to live out our vision and mission for the district by pushing our students to achieve at a higher level of academic performance, in a positive learning environment. Our daily intervention block and after school tutoring program will provide students with the support they need to grow.
Our parents play a critical role in what we do as educators. Your continued support in making sure students arrive by 8:15A.M., are in proper uniform, have the necessary school supplies and complete homework daily will help students experience success. Thank you for your partnership! If you have questions, suggestions/ideas or would like to join our PTA please contact us at (708)385-5400.
