Good afternoon Dirksen families,
Summer Tech Camp: Information is attached regarding our District 54 Tech Camp. The camps take place in June and are a fabulous opportunity for students. Please take a look to see if this might be something for your child!
Spring Scholastic Book Fair: Our Spring Book Fair is coming soon! It will be Thursday, May 7 and Friday, May 8 from 8:45-2:30 p.m. in the Dirksen gym. On Thursday, all Dirksen students will be given a chance to choose their free book** from PTA and preview the sale during the school day. The students will bring home their wish list for parents’ approval. On Friday, the students will return to school with their wish list and the money to purchase their books for buy one, get one free. (Don’t forget tax! 9% in Schaumburg.)
**For the FREE books donated by the Dirksen PTA: K – 2nd may pick a book $4.99 or less; 3rd – 4th may pick a book $5.99 or less; 5th – 6th may pick a book $6.99 or less.
Superintendent’s Article: Superintendent DuRoss’ most recent article written for the Daily Herald was published in print today. The article is accessible on the District 54 website. Mr. DuRoss also appears in a video related to the article content. The link to the video, which is cited in the article, can be found here.
Boomers Game: We have had a few questions about the Boomer’s game.
· The $5 game ticket includes a hot dog lunch. Students who prefer not to eat hotdogs may bring their own lunch to the game. If students bring their own lunch they will still need to pay $5 for admission.
· Students may not buy snacks or souvenirs at the ballpark.
· Dress code: We are asking that students wear Dirksen sprit wear if they have it. If not, the dress code guidelines for school would apply for the game.
· Electronic devices: We will follow the same guidelines that we use in school with regards to electronic devices. If a student has a cellphone in their possession we will ask that they are kept in the student’s backpack at school.
MAP Testing: Please check the post below for the Spring MAP schedule. Your children are prepared and ready for these tests!
As a reminder, there is no school on Friday, April 18. The Dirken staff hopes you all enjoy a wonderful, extended weekend with your families!
