Good morning to all of you today! I’m sending you a quick update on some relevant Addams information…here it is:
Addams Cancer Walk
Tomorrow is the annual Addams Cancer Walk. Thanks to all who are participating and giving what they can to help stop this terrible disease. Students with signed permission slips will remain at Addams after school from 1:45 to 3 pm and walk with the Addams staff. If your child is walking and you would like to join us, feel free to stop by! We will have the Cancer Walk indoors if the weather doesn’t cooperate with us.
All Addams students are getting their Spring MAP Reports today from their Language Arts Teacher. Please make sure you look for it when your child comes home today!
Free Pizza Day
Since the students of Jane Addams reached the district targets for MAP growth, all of the students and staff will be receiving a free slice of pizza and a bottle of water on Tuesday, May 28th! Each student will only get one slice of pizza, so if that is not enough, they should bring additional food with them to school.

This December, the Board of Education adopted the Traits Writing Program for all students in District 54. This program takes students through the writing process while exposing them to a variety of different writing modes. Students learn skills to help them develop ideas, word choice, sentence fluency, organization, voice, and conventions.
During the spring of the 2012-2013 school year, students in District 54 used these traits materials, including a student handbook, in their classrooms. While the handbooks were not completed, students may wish to continue utilizing the incomplete pages during the summer on their own. Students will find the pages to be quick practice activities that will keep their brains active during the summer months.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns related to the end of the year!
