School District 166 invites parents and students to Back to School Orientation Thursday

Parents and children are invited to School District166’s Back to School Orientation on Thursday, August 29.  The event will be open from 3:30-7:30 p.m.
Over the summer the school has undergone many transitions. School offices have moved, new classrooms created, new paint graces the walls, new lockers have replaced old lockers, and of course the work on the Cook County Community YMCA goes on as well.
All kindergarten through 12th grade teachers will be on hand and in their classrooms to answer questions. The grade school and middle/high school offices will be open for making payments, getting forms and staff will be available to answer questions.
A panel of administrators will give a preview of the coming year and be on hand to answer questions at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts (ACA) from 4 p.m.-4:40 p.m.
A meeting for middle and high school parents will be held in the ACA from 4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and from 5:45 p.m. to 6:52 p.m. students and parents can follow the student’s seven-period schedule by participating in seven-minute classes with three-minute breaks. Classroom teachers will provide overviews of their class’ curriculum, expectations, and hopes for the year.
Shake those summer blues and come out to the orientation. School begins the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, September 3.
Get ready for fun, because school is coming quicker than you think!
