Important Info for the 2018-19 School Year

Dear Dirksen Community,

On behalf of the Dirksen staff we want to thank you for a wonderful school year!  Each student worked hard to be a great student and citizen in our Dirksen community.  We hope that your family has a wonderful summer and we can’t wait to hear about our students’ summer adventures.

Next year will bring exciting additions and changes for our building.  We will be moving to straight grade level classrooms.  We will also be welcoming four classrooms for students with autism.  We have a few staff members who will be leaving us to follow their paths in other schools:  Mr. Wroblewski, Miss Vonderheide, and Mrs. Miller.  We wish them the best in their new opportunities!

Some important dates as you plan for the next school year:

Wednesday, August 8: School of Information Day

Thursday, August 16: Back to School Picnic from 4:00-6:00 p.m. 

Monday, August 20: First day of school for First through Sixth Grades 

Monday, August 27: First day of school for Kindergarten 

Enjoy your summer!
