The 8th grade graduation date has been set. Keller’s graduation ceremony will be held Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 beginning at 6:00 PM at Schaumburg High School. We do not issue tickets and seating is on a first come, first seated basis. We ALWAYS have enough room for all to attend!
Graduation Requirements-Each junior high school holds a graduation ceremony for eighth grade students. All eighth grade graduates are required to rent gowns for the ceremony. In order for an eighth grade student to participate in the graduation ceremony, the student must complete all academic assignments one week prior to the graduation ceremony. It will be the student’s responsibility to turn in all late or missing assignments. Failure to turn in even one assignment will cause the student to be excluded from the graduation ceremony. Extreme inappropriate behavior could also cause a student to be excluded from the graduation ceremony at the discretion of the school administrators.
Teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois have the opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. The survey was designed to offer individuals an opportunity to share their thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help guide school improvement. To take the parent survey, please visit http://Illinois.5-essentials.org between now and April 25, 2014. When searching for your school, remember to look up the full name (for example, look under H for Helen Keller Junior High) We would like as many of our parents to take this survey as possible, if we can assist you in any way please let us know. We also have computers available for parents (in the main office) to complete the survey if needed.
Several of Keller’s 8th grade students became very happy to begin map testing. They wanted to share their excitement about doing their very best on the MAP test with our wonderful community. Please listen to the attachment. Let’s get “Mappy”!!
The track meet schedule for today, Tuesday April; 15th, has been canceled.
We are all so proud of you Shaan!
