Happy Friday! Hard to believe we are two weeks in to the new school year, especially with this beautiful weather.
Please ask your student(s) about “Be your own Budlong Beautiful” and what they did as a class to celebrate ourselves. We are so very proud of our students and the uniqueness each one brings to our school! Please join us for Peace Day on 9/21 at 9:30 on the field for a celebration of Budlong’s beauty and as we pledge to be peaceful and compassionate individuals. See Ms. Cohn for more details, and if you are interested in helping.
Our Curriculum Night is Tuesday, 9/19, from 4- 6 pm. You are invited to come to learn about your child’s classroom and hear about school-wide focus points and initiatives. Hoping to see everyone there.
CPS has launched the GoCPS high school application for eighth graders. We will be meeting with parents in the coming weeks to share pertinent information for our students so they can take advantage of this universal application for Chicago high schools. Counselor Ms. Chmiel will be sending out information as well. A high school fair will take place here at Budlong on 9/28 from 1:30 – 2:30.
Our After School Care Program has started. It is open to our PM PK – third graders. It is $5/hour/student Monday – Friday. Please see Ms. Salky for more information.
Monday is our first Friends of Budlong meeting of the year. We will meet at 5pm and talk about ways to fundraise for the year. All are welcome, and bring a friend.
