2020-2021 Schedule Change Requests
Students who would like to request a change to a course they requested for the 20-21 academic year when they met with their counselor in January/February may now do so by completing our Schedule Change Request Form. These requests will be processed on a space-available basis by date of request. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but our schedule is tight and some changes will not be available. Please note that this is not a level change request. You cannot request to move to a higher-level course than you were originally recommended for. If this is something you are interested in, you must first reach out to the Department Chair and they will notify us if the request is approved before we would look at availability. Please reach out with any questions!
Summer Math Packets
In order to ensure that students are fully prepared for math class in fall with all of the essential prerequisite skills, we have prepared summer math packets to keep skills fresh over the summer. To access these packets, CLICK HERE , and download the packet that corresponds to the math class students are taking next year. Once students work through the problems, they can check their answers using the solutions we posted there as well. Tutorial links are provided if students struggle with particular skills.
Any questions regarding the summer review packet can be directed to Kurt Vonnahme, Mathematics Department Chair, at 630-570-8420 or email@example.com.

Your teachers have hand-selected for you a list of 40 books that will help you escape, make you laugh, or cry, or think. The lists are divided into book lists for each grade level, but feel free to choose any book on any list that you finding interesting. And once you finish one book, you’ll probably want to go back to the list to find another title. You can find the book lists (and links to book trailer videos) here and descriptions of all the books in a slide deck here.
