Dear Addams Community:

On behalf of the Addams staff, we would like to extend our gratitude to your support through this challenging year. Together, we made it! To our graduates and families that are moving on, we wish you all the best! Once you join the movement of Addams, you are a part of our family for life so make sure to keep in touch. And for our returning students, we look forward to a more “normal” school experience next year.

Have an amazing summer!

Addams Has Talent (and lots of it)

Summer Opportunities
It’s hard to believe that summer is already upon us! District 54 has some exciting opportunities for students to continue learning and maintaining their progress throughout the summer months!  To find out more specifics about our Virtual Learning Academy, our Summer Reading Lists, DreamBox and Learning A-Z click here! These activities are perfect to help sustain your child’s academic skills over the summer or even to prevent boredom on a rainy day!   

Also attached are the updated summer reading lists for grade levels, this summer resource handout as well as the Schaumburg Township District Library’s Summer Challenge post card to buildings next week.  These handouts should be distributed across the board to our in-person students within all EC through 7th grade classrooms prior to the last day of school. The pdfs above are to share with your remote students as well.  An email will also be shared with staff reminding them to share usernames and passwords with students prior to the summer.  Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your help and support with this!
