All children brought home a recommended summer reading list and a math practice packet to help keep their minds active over the summer. The public libraries will provide multiple copies of these books so students have access to the suggested titles. We strongly encourage your support in allowing time for both reading and math over the long break. Thank you for your support at home to keep your child’s learning momentum going over the summer!
We have received a record number of completed registration files! Thank you to the families who completed this important step in preparing for next year. If your child’s 2014-15 registration is still outstanding, you will find a bright pink reminder in his/her report card envelope. Please return the registration paperwork by Wednesday, June 11th or contact the office at (847)357-6700. Students without outstanding registration documents will not be placed on a class list for next year.
Thank you to Mrs. Faso and Mrs. Sarley for coordinating a celebration of our 6th graders on the last day of school Thank you also to the parents who volunteered to set up the festivities. Our 6th graders led the final dismissal with a parade of cheering and high fives from peers and staff members. We are so proud of their accomplishments at Armstrong, and we know they will soar as seventh graders next year!
Armstrong’s PTA can save you time and money this summer by taking over the task of finding all of the school supplies your child will need for our next school year. Submit the form(s) attached here by the last day of school and when school begins in August your child’s supplies will be waiting in their new classroom!
Following each PTA sponsored cultural arts field trip students are asked to write about their experience. Some reflections from each class are then posted online. To read a bit about what our students learned this year, please click on any of the events below:
It was a beautiful morning this past Saturday for our annual Planting Day! Thank you to Ms. Nicholson for organizing the event, and the Freres, Johnson, Cochran, Cloherty, Patel, and Raol families for helping plant our vegetables. The Armstrong garden is ready to thrive this summer, with the help of many families and volunteers! Over the summer months, Armstrong families take turns watering, weeding, and harvesting the crops. If you are interested in adopting the garden for a 2-week rotation with another family, please contact Ms. Nicholson at 847-357-2076 or LisaNicholson@sd54.org.
