Here’s a picture of Mr. Baker’s 4th graders playing a card game from My Math encouraging learning of standard-based numbers and expanded-form numbers. Students created their own deck of cards to compete in a card game comparing whole numbers and their values.
Due to construction on Galena Ave., Palmyra Ave. and around Reagan/Madison School, bus routes have been extremely long. Delays as long as 15-20 minutes getting over the Galena Ave. bridge have been recorded and there are three identified routes that must go over the bridge twice each evening. In order for the shuttle system to operate correctly, all of the buses must wait for all of the other buses to arrive at the shuttle location before leaving thus each delay potentially delays multiple routes. We realize this is an inconvenience to the families and challenging for the students especially when the temperatures remain warm. While we are working diligently with the bus company on multiple issues, unfortunately, until these construction projects are completed, we do not anticipate consistent improvements in the route times. We appreciate your patience.
Students in Ms. Freeman's class worked together to build a robotic hand. More hands on fun in 4th grade!
As you may know, Illinois Governor, J. B. Pritzker held a COVID-19 press conference today where he issued new rules regarding indoor masking, educational employee vaccination and testing requirements. The indoor masking order, statewide, begins Monday, August 30, and the requirement for educational employees to begin their COVID-19 vaccine regimen is September 5. All educational employees must get a COVID-19 vaccination or submit to testing weekly (or more frequently if ordered by the local health department). We will communicate internally with our staff on the specifics of how we will verify staff vaccination status, and coordinate weekly testing as appropriate. Our consistent and continuous aim is safety, learning, and communication. We’re proud to be open, full day and full time and fully in person. Thank you for your support and understanding, and thank you for allowing us to lead and serve the educational needs for each child, every day!
