A message from Principal Edward Owusu

Wishing all those celebrating Rosh Hashana a "Shanah Tovah". Last week was capped of by an informative presentation on the topic of school safety by the State's Attorney John McCarthy. It was an important discussion that we expect will resonate in our community. (See news stories here and here.)

This week is a 4 day week as schools are closed Monday, and Friday is an Early Release Day for staff and students to complete mid quarter progress reports. We are proud to continue celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with activities and information all week. Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing will continue this week for grade 9 students. And parents, please ask your student what they are learning in their academic classes while also checking ParentVUE. Keeping the focus on academics has to be a priority!
