[5/2 Principal's Letter]
Good Evening. This coming week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and to celebrate, FOB is compiling a video to let the teachers know how important teachers are, especially now, to our students and community. Thanks for submitting pics to FOB for the video, and I can't wait to see it.
Kindergarten enrollment will begin next week. The website is being updated to reflect the new electronic enrollment process. In short, new families will schedule a phone appointment with Ms. Ramirez and she will walk you through completing and submitting the required forms. Enrollment is for students new to Budlong; registration is for returning Budlong students and will be held in August.
We are working on a parent survey (in Arabic, Spanish, and Vietnamese also) regarding Remote Learning. Please be sure to complete it so we can get your feedback and make improvements and adjustments for our students. Please watch for the survey in your email early in the week.
CPS Principals received their school's 2020-21 budgets last week. More to come in the next few weeks.

*See information below to support our teacher Danielle Richmond's husband's film:
Titled Gemütlichkeit, the film chronicles the closing of the Chicago Brauhaus, a beloved neighborhood restaurant in Lincoln Square. It's a story about the value of gathering with family, friends and neighbors in shared space, which is something we all miss right now. We hope the movie offers a little distraction and something to look forward to during these lonely times.
Gemütlichkeit will premier online with a free, one-time-only stream at 7pm CST, April 30. You can watch on the film's Facebook page facebook.com/brauhausfilm or on the website brauhausfilm.com
In lieu of a rental fee, audiences can donate whatever amount they like to the Chicago Covid-19 Response Fund chicagocovid19responsefund.org or to DANK dankhaus.com/Donate.
Check out the trailer on the film's facebook page or website. Hope to see you on April 30!
