Dear Panther Students and Families,
A big shout out to the Fine Arts Department and all of the participating
students who put on a beautiful winter concert. Thank you to all of the
families and community members who all came out to join in the musical
festivities. It was a beautiful celebration of culture and peace for the
winter holiday season!
Last week we also held our Bridge Building Competition where four bridges
endured rigorous stress tests and will compete in the Chicago Regional
Contest at Illinois Tech!
This week is another full week of instruction, with both CPS progress reports
and Von PRIDE reports coming out this week. This is a great temperature check
to see what adjustments need to be made before we head off to winter break!
PARENTS, also if you did not get a chance to last week, please read the
important flyer in this newsletter of the upcoming changes to Parent Portal so
you can stay up to date on your student’s grades and attendance! Finally,
we will be providing FREE Dental Exams for any student who has the forms filled
out and returned to room 208 (Mrs. Shaul). Click here for the free
dental forms: ENGLISH or ESPAÑOL.
This week, continue to show COMPASSION for ourselves, for each other and
in the work that we do, and finish 2018 Von strong! Stay warm and safe during
this hectic time. Thank you for doing your best!
