Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our last day of school for 8th grade students is June 4, 2015. Our graduation ceremony takes place at 6:30 P.M. on June 4, 2015. All 8th grade students will be issued four tickets for this ceremony. Everyone in attendance must have a ticket to attend. The doors will open for attendees at 6:00 P.M. and we begin the ceremony promptly at 6:30 P.M. We want to remind parents that students’ attendance at school is mandatory and all students need to be present so that learning continues and to ensure students have practice sessions to understand the expectations/procedures for the graduation ceremony.

Our last day of school for 7th grade students is June 8, 2015. Every day of student attendance is a day of learning. Our 7th grade students will be going on their end of year field trip on either May 29th, June 2nd or June 3rd. This fieldtrip consists of an architectural boat tour of Chicago and a visit to Navy Pier.

During the summer we are encouraging all parents and students to take part in the many positive programs being offered by the Glenwood-Lynwood Library. We are attaching the information about wonderful programs being sponsored that will help your child continue to inspire their love for learning.

I want to thank you for all of your support during this school year. It has been a great year and our students have shown so much growth!

Sincerely,

Bethany A. Lindsay, Principal
Brookwood Junior High School
