Parent-Teacher Conferences: Save the Date

Please save the date for our fall parent-teacher conferences on Nov. 16-18, immediately preceding fall break (Thanksgiving week). Conferences will be held via Zoom, with in-person appointments available by request. More details, including sign-up information, will be provided in the coming weeks.

Board of Education Meeting

The Board of Education will hold its regular monthly business meeting on Monday, Sept. 19 at 7 pm at the MEC. The meeting will open with a public hearing to review our e-Learning Plan, which is updated for its original purpose of creating flexibility to make up an emergency closure day (ie. a snow day). The Board will also hear a presentation on the 2022-23 action steps for our D39 Strategic Plan and receive a report on our Summer Enrichment Program before continuing its review of Board policies. Click here for access to the complete meeting agenda and materials posted this afternoon.

Shine on 39

Please enjoy the second installment of our Shine on 39 series! We shine the spotlight on our 8th grade science teachers and students, who recently wrapped up their energy unit by creating solar cars and engaging in some friendly competition by racing them on the WJHS black top. This project ties in with Goal 1 of our strategic plan centered on student achievement and growth and supports the engaged learning and empowered mindset that are tenets of our D39 mission. Great job!
