I am incredibly proud of our students and staff this year. No matter where or how they were learning, our students demonstrated incredible resilience. In spite of many changes, they have grown so much as readers, writers, mathematicians, and thinkers. Our staff has remained dedicated to our student learning and has worked tirelessly to make learning meaningful.
It is hard to believe that the last five days of school are upon us! As I visited classrooms this week, you would have never known it was the second to last week of school.
On May 18, 2021 at approximately 3:20 p.m., the Elmhurst Police Department notified the Bryan Middle School and Jackson Elementary School Administration of an incident near the school communities, requiring the schools to initiate a soft lockdown. The lockdown was in place briefly but was lifted by 3:38 p.m. the Elmhurst Police Department, allowing for dismissal to proceed as normal.
We have ten days left of the school year! Next week, our fifth graders have their first end of year event with a visit to Bryan Middle School on Monday morning. We are looking forward to celebrating their time as Jackson Jaguars while also preparing them for sixth grade.
As we head into the last three weeks of school, we are excited to finish the year strong with meaningful learning and some fun events to celebrate our school community. Throughout the next few weeks, we will be updating reading benchmarks for students to measure their growth as readers this school year. These assessments are given to each child in a one to one setting.
