6th & 7th Grade Party 
Help the 6th and 7th graders celebrate the end of the school year as they enjoy pizza and bouncy houses on the last day of school (June 10) from 12:30-3:20 p.m.! We need parent volunteers to help out that day and help make the day special for the kids. Contact [email protected] or 773-269-9782 for more information. Volunteer using this SignUp Genius.

CommunIDEE will meet tonight, June 1 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Avoca West ITC to discuss program options and ideas for next year. If you have questions, want more information, or if you cannot attend but have ideas, please email Ami Das at [email protected] 

PTC Annual Year-End Picnic 
The PTC is throwing an outdoor picnic* to celebrate the end of the school year! Pizza will be provided for all students, staff, and volunteers. Please contact Melanie Morrow or your class parents ([email protected]) if your child has any dietary restrictions (i.e. gluten-free or vegan). Feel free to bring large picnic blankets if you have them.
All kids will go back to their classrooms and end the school year with their teachers and classmates. 
There will be a regular 3:00 p.m. pickup at the end of the day.  
Thank you to those that have volunteered to help with the pizza. Please be on the lookout for room parent emails for class-specific volunteer opportunities. We politely request that only volunteers attend the picnic. We hope to resume in-person events for community building in the upcoming year. 
*In case of rain, we will be indoors and those details will be shared closer to the actual event. 

ADL Parents Night Out 
Please join parents and caregivers on Thursday, June 2 from 7-9 p.m. at Stormy's Tavern & Grille as we gather to bid farewell our group’s co-founder Louise Dechovitz. Please RSVP to Helen at 312-550-2077 by text.
