I hope that the start of school has been great for your student. We have welcomed 342 Freshmen and 35 transfer students to our Ramily this year!
Grayslake Central’s Open House was held on 8/29. Our teachers were very happy to meet the parents of their students and share with them the exciting topics that the students will be discovering this school year.
On August 30th, we held our senior information meeting. Our Herff-Jones representative collected cap and gown orders from the students. She will be back in the building on September 4th (5-7 pm) and September 5th during lunch hours to answer questions and take additional orders for class rings, letterman jackets and graduation announcements. Please visit their website for additional information or to place your order.
The school counselors also presented a program about the college application process, and a brief reminder on how to use Naviance in the process.
I spoke with the students about their opportunity to audition to be a Graduation (May 21st @7pm) Student Speaker and our academic achievement award, Cum Laude. Here is a link to the Cum Laude page : http://www.d127.org/curriculum/cum-laude
Next Friday is our home opener for our football program and Senior Night for our band, flags, cheerleading, dance, football, and boys’ golf teams. It really is a wonderful night!
Homecoming is three weeks away! Homecoming Week begins on September 15th with hall decorating and culminates with the Homecoming Dance on September 21st. There are many ways our students can get involved in the week’s events. Information will be share via the morning announcement, or your student can contact Mrs. Brownstone and/or Mrs. Ciferri.
If you’re interested in providing direct feedback to Central, consider joining the Parent Advisory Council. We meet monthly (up to 6 times a school year) and discuss events that are taking place at the school. If you’re interested, please contact Tracie Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-986-3367.
It’s a great day to be a Ram!
