First SEL of the Year - Friday, August 22

During the school day tomorrow, students will participate in SEL! Here is more information on our program: 

“Careful the things you say, children will listen.  Careful the things you do, children will see and learn.  Children may not obey, but children will listen. Children will look to you for which way to turn. To learn what to be.” Children Will Listen from Into the Woods

Per CASEL, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (www.casel.org), social and emotional learning (SEL) involves the processes through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. SEL programming is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges in the context of supportive relationships that make learning challenging, engaging and meaningful.

Social and emotional skills are critical to being a good student, citizen and worker; and many risky behaviors (e.g., drug use, violence, bullying and dropping out) can be prevented or reduced when multi-year, integrated efforts are used to develop students' social and emotional skills. This is best done through effective classroom instruction; student engagement in positive activities in and out of the classroom; and broad parent and community involvement in program planning, implementation and evaluation. Effective SEL programming begins in preschool and continues through high school.

Students arriving to school late and reporting absences - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

If a student is arriving late to school, a parent must come into the school lobby and sign their child in.  The student must then obtain a written pass from the office to their classroom.  If the student is not in their first period class by 7:40, he/she is considered "late".  This policy is for the accountability and safety of the students.  

If you know in advance that your child will be late to school for whatever reason, please be sure to call the attendance line the day before (or before school starts on that day) and leave a message on the attendance line (847-353-5503) with your child's name, grade level and reason for being late or absent.  Also, if you plan to be out of town for several days, it is important to leave a message on the attendance line with the dates your child will be out of town in advance. Thank you for teaching our students to be early to school and in class on time!  

Student independence and responsibilities will increase over these next years and it's up to parents, along with the help of our educators and staff to allow this independence to develop.

AJHS Welcomes Students and Teachers!

Hope everyone is having a great summer! Information packets and class schedules were mailed home on Friday! Please keep in mind that locker numbers/combos are on your class schedule and is not something you want to share (some students mistakenly posted pictures of their class schedules on facebook last year).

There is a list of important upcoming events before the actual start of school that you may want to attend so please take your time and read all information in the packet carefully.  Important forms are due to the office during the first week of school.   For those 7th grade students who may not have received a packet and class schedule, please check with the district office to make sure that your residency has been verified.

A special welcome to all of our new students coming from other school districts and to our new teachers here at AJHS.....Mr. Arends (Math),  Ms. Brody (Art), Mrs. Pinta (Language Arts), Miss Yang, (Math), and Mrs. Weinstein. So happy to have you at D102!
