Dear Cicero community,
Nearly a month into the 2021-2022 school year, we have already seen amazing interactions with our students, staff and community!
At many of our schools, we have hosted virtual open houses, where families have met their child's classroom teachers, learned more about the school, and discovered the extracurricular and academic opportunities that exist for students at each school.
As a District, we are so proud of our students, staff and community for supporting and adhering to the mask mandate that was issued by the State's governor. Each school has created a process which students can easily follow for arrival, dismissal, classroom transitions and the like. More importantly, students have begun the process of interacting with one another and their teachers.
As a District, we pride ourselves in educating the whole child. And, as we move forward together through the 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to focus not only on academics, but on the social and emotional wellbeing of every child as well. We do this by participating in classroom circles and restorative circles when needed. These circles are a strong way in which students and staff can interact with one another — in creative and interactive ways — to build lasting and powerful relationships.
This past weekend, the District and many of Cicero's community partners participated in the Town of Cicero's Mexican Independence Day Parade, and we could not have had a better time! There were thousands of community members and dozens of partners who helped make the event possible. In addition, the weekend was also filled with excitement as the community celebrated the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Thank you to all who participated in this month's community cultural events, and thank you for all of your unwavering support to the District, staff and most importantly, the students.
