Dear Addams Community,

We are proud of our in-person learners this week for persevering through the IAR assessments. In addition, thank you to our remote learners for completing the mathematics and literacy work the last three days! We look forward to getting back to a more typical schedule of learning next week!

This afternoon, we invite both our in-person and remote learners to take part in 7th and 8th grade virtual pep assemblies! We will give out Movement Awards for those students and staff that have embodied the tenets of Joining the Movement which are to pursue long-term optimism while utilizing GRIT. In addition, we hold some raffles and just enjoy being together as a school.

Have a great weekend! 

Regards

Chris Bingen            Bill Musselman

As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can upload through your portal or provide to the school office to complete your registration.

You are also able to pay the consumable fee for 2021-22, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal. If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2021-22 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.

Should you have any questions, please call the Addams Main Office.
