- Families & Students
The Eisenhower staff would like to wish all of our families a wonderful spring break. We are hopeful that the time will be full of creating positive memories and connections for your family. I personally am excited to have my son home from college. Students will return to school on April 3. Tuesday, April 4 is a non-attendance day due to elections. Friday, April 7 is a non-attendance day due to Good Friday.
|Happy spring break!|
|Eighth Grade Highlights:
We are excited to announce that this year’s event will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at Wintrust Field, also known as the Schaumburg Boomers Stadium.
In order to accommodate all families, we will be limiting each family to six tickets. Students will sit on the field with their classmates, while families will sit in the stands. In the event of rain, we will hold our graduation ceremony on Monday, May 22, at 6:00 p.m. at Hoffman High School.
A livestream of the event will be posted to the District 54 YouTube Channel for individuals who are unable to be there that day. All students’ names will be read during the ceremony, whether or not they attend.
In order to create a memorable experience, we would like to start by asking you to complete this quick Graduation Ceremony Survey by Monday, April 3, to determine which students will be participating and how many tickets you will need.
If your child is participating in the ceremony at Wintrust Field, they will be asked to order a gown in our school colors. 8th grade families have already ordered gowns.
Thank you for your quick response to this survey. Please continue to read my weekly emails as I will continue to share additional information this spring about graduation and other end-of-the-year celebrations. Graduation Ticket Survey
In order to participate in the ceremony the School Board has established the following policies:
In order for an eighth grade student to participate in the graduation ceremony, he/she 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. Beginning April 06, we will be setting up mandatory after school homework support for students missing 5 or more assignments. Mandatory after school homework support will be on the following dates: 04/06, 04/11, 04/13, 04/18, 04/20, 04/25, 04/27, 05/02, 05/04, 05/09, 05/11, 05/16.
Extreme inappropriate behavior may cause a student to be excluded from graduation ceremonies and/or 8th grade activities at the discretion of the school administrators.
