Happy Spring Break! Some news to share as we begin our week off:
We recognized our students for exemplifying the Habits of Heart, Mind, and Work last Friday. Congratulations to all our recipients, and here's to third grader, Dakota, who so very well expresses his elation and surprise at being named for Habit of Heart by his teacher, Ms. Tovar. I am so proud of our students who continually show their Habits; they are acting with kindness and compassion, they diligently problem-solve, and they have a strong work ethic. Our students are leaders!
Congratulations to our eighth graders on their high school acceptances. A record number of Budlong students were offered a seat at Selective Enrollment High Schools, and other top tier high schools throughout CPS. Way to go!
The application for 2019-20 PK is due out by April 30th. Please check https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/chicagoearlylearning/home.html for updates, and the application. I am excited to announce that all of our PK rooms will be full-day next year, and the Office of Early Childhood has promised a fifth room for 2019-20 due to high demand :)
Here are important dates for the quarter 4. Please pay special attention to graduation dates. Those were adjusted because of the two snow days added to the calendar.
And finally, despite the snow showers, we have sun shining brightly today! Enjoy a safe, restful, and peaceful spring break. See everyone on Monday, 4/22.
