Registration reminders have been sent home and registration is now past due. Please be sure to complete registration paperwork and all necessary documents as soon as possible. Your child is not included on a class list until registration is complete.
Armstrong’s main office is closed for the summer but will reopen on August 3, 2018. Any incomplete registration forms or missing residency documents will need to be submitted in person at our district office at 524 E. Schaumburg Road during summer registration. More information about summer registration can be found on the district website here.
Are you searching for an innovative way to empower your children over the summer? Are you looking for a comprehensive approach to summer learning that combats boredom and keeps everyone engaged? Look no further! We have created a new website with a wide range of challenges at each grade level to help prevent the summer slide. Visit the School District 54 Virtual Learning University to tackle challenges for literacy, math, science, social science, language and culture too! Each content area has multiple challenges to keep your children’s minds focused and active throughout the summer weeks! Within each category you will find family activities, individual activities and places to visit in our community and surrounding areas. We hope you’ll encourage your children to visit our Virtual Learning University often throughout the summer to challenge themselves and to keep your family learning together. Click here to access the Virtual Learning University or find the link under Popular Links on the District 54 website.

It is hard to believe the school year has come to a close! On behalf of the entire Armstrong staff, we wish you and your family a fun and relaxing summer full of memories together.
We celebrated the last day with our sixth grade students on Thursday, which included breakfast, a Skype interview with astronaut Scott Parazynski, and a memory video. You can view the video on YouTube here. Thank you to Mrs. Meyer for coordinating the celebration and video, Mrs. Keil for creating the memory book, and the many parents who volunteered to serve breakfast. We wish our sixth grade students the best as they move on to junior high!

All families will need to prove residency for the 2018-2019 school year before your child can be placed on a class list. Parents who have access to the parent portal received notification through an email. Parents who have not accessed the parent portal received letters through the mail. You may update residency on the parent portal and upload the necessary documents. If you are unable to upload documents to prove residency, you may bring in those documents to our school office. Students will only be assigned to a class list if their registration is complete, including updated residency.
If you drive your child during the busy arrival and dismissal times, please refrain from turning your car around, blocking driveways, or using driveways as a 3-point turn. This is important to ensure the safety of the many parents, students, cars, and buses on the street during this time. Please use the streets that intersect at Armstrong, Blair Lane or Newcastle Lane, to take you back to Higgins or Golf without having to turn your car around. In addition, please be sure to use the crosswalk at Blair Lane if you need to cross the street with your child. Thank you for your attention to this important request!
