Dear Addams community:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your partnership in the success of our students this year! And what a year it has been. Addams students took on the “growth mindset” while excelling both inside and outside the classroom. We wish our graduates all the best as they continue to reach new heights in high school. As for our returning students, we look forward to them becoming role models as they show the new Crusaders how to live above the line through developing positive habit loops at Jane Addams next fall.

Some important dates to remember for the 2014-2015 school year are:

  • August 14 – (9:00-12:00pm and 6:00-8:00 pm) Information Day
  • August 14 – The inaugural Addams block party (4:30 pm – 6:00 pm)
  • August 26 – First Day of School 7th grade ONLY
  • August 27  – Both 7th and 8th graders in attendance
  • September 10 – Curriculum Night

More specific information regarding these events will go home in early August.

We wish all of you a restful and relaxing summer break. See you in August!

Regards,

Chris Bingen and Dave Szwed
