As you know, all District 54 families will be required to prove residency on a yearly basis. Therefore, if you have not done so, please visit the district webpage to ensure you have the proper documentation to get your child set for the upcoming school year. https://sd54.org/resources/registration/ . If you do not have this completed, your child will not be placed on a class list. Please note, you will see direct links on the right side of the page which will support on-line registration. If you have questions about residency, please call our main office at (847)357-6700. Our secretaries will be in the office until Friday, June 9 and will not return to the building until August 3, 2017.

Did you know that students can experience learning loss if they don’t engage in educational activities over the summer? If students do not continue to keep their minds busy during summer break, up to 25% of academic learning can be lost, according to the US Department of Education. We want to help keep our students growing over the summer months! Each teacher will send home work for students to complete over the summer – this may include math packets to prepare for the next grade level, recommended educational apps, a summer reading list, and/or a calendar of fun educational activities. Look for that important packet in your child’s backpack during the last week of school!
The PTA’s very last Book Exchange of the School Year is happening this Friday on May 19th!
All teachers and students may bring any book or books they have read or don’t want any longer to exchange.
How many books you bring in to exchange is how many books you can take home!
Volunteers are needed to help run the book exchange from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering, contact
Dave at 847-312-9852.
Armstrong School is proud to share that at the District 54 Annual Spanish Language Speech Contest held on May 4th at MacArthur School, our own Erick Fuentes placed 2nd in his grade level category out of 100 applicants! Watch his award winning speech here!
The month of May is an incredible time for celebrations in our school community, and we are looking forward to the events taking place over the next few weeks. Our sixth graders will soon be graduating from Armstrong and we are proud of their accomplishments. Our Kindergarten classrooms have been very exciting over the past few days as the students watch baby chicks hatch and grow with the Egg to Chick unit. This week will be our final week of Spring MAP testing, and our staff and students are looking forward to discussing growth in both math and reading. Finally, this past week we were thrilled to welcome incoming parents and kindergarteners for next year at our Kindergarten Round Up event. We have a wonderful few weeks ahead of us as our students continue to learn and grow this month!
