Dear Addams Community:
It is 75 degrees outside and the Blackhawks are on for game two of the playoffs tonight! What more could we ask for? We hope everyone gets the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful weather today.
A night out with the Addams staff:
Would you like to be waited on by some of your favorite teachers or the administrators of Jane Addams? Then join us at Ricardo’s restaurant (1170 S Roselle Rd, Schaumburg, IL 60193) this coming Thursday, April 23rd from 5 -7 pm. Members of the staff of Addams will be present to help seat you, take your orders and fill your cups. A portion of all sales from the evening will benefit the Addams PTA and ultimately, the students of Jane Addams.

Parents of eighth-grade students: As you may know, the 2014-15 school year was extended by five days due to the cancelation of school on severe weather days. The District 54 Board of Education recently approved an amended school calendar establishing Friday, June 12, as the last day of school for students in early childhood through seventh grade.
In collaboration with District 211, District 54 has set the last day of school for eighth-grade students as Tuesday, June 9. That same evening all District 54 junior highs will conduct their graduation ceremony. Our graduation is at Schaumburg High School at 6:00 pm. We will conduct graduation practice on Monday, June 8th.
We are aware of potential conflicts for students due to the fact that some activities and summer school programs in District 211 begin June 8 and June 9, respectively. Because District 211’s registration process is ongoing, we are unable to identify a complete list of impacted students.
At no point, will your child be penalized for their enrollment in a District 211 program. If a conflict applies to your child, please call me at your earliest convenience.
