Third Trimester Grading

The Illinois State Board of Education has said that student work completed during the statewide closure should not count negatively toward student grades or a student’s academic standing. However, District 54 will continue to design high quality lessons and activities for students; to assess student progress; and to provide feedback on student work.  District 54 teachers will be issuing either a “Pass” or “Incomplete” for third trimester grades.

District 54 Summer Camps Cancelled

Due to this unprecedented time we are faced with, all District 54 Summer Camps have been cancelled for this year. These camps include, Summer STEM, 54 Fitness League, Camp Creative, Language and Culture Camp, and Summer Instrumental Music. If you have submitted a payment for any camp, you will be issued a refund starting Thursday, April 30, and you should see a credit appear on your statement within 14 business days.

The camp facilitators are going to miss seeing students this summer. Students in all grade levels can stay engaged by participating in the School District 54 Summer Virtual Learning University, which is filled with fun activities and challenges for students and families to participate in together from home. The link for the Virtual Learning University will be on the School District 54 website in the last week of May.

D54 Foundation Golf Outing Rescheduled- August 10, 2020

With the current stay-at-home order in effect until at least the end of the month and keeping the safety and well-being of our sponsors, golfers and volunteers in mind, the District 54 Education Foundation has postponed the 23rd Annual Golf Outing to Monday, August 10, 2020. We hope that by then we will all be able to safely come together to benefit our students and their families.

We are appreciative of all of the already committed sponsors and their dedication to the success of our students. We hope that those who have already registered to golf are able to join us on our new date. Throughout the summer and in the weeks preceding our event, we will continue to keep everyone updated on the logistics of the outing.  To become a sponsor or to register for golf, visit

Fourth Grade Students and Parents – Band and Orchestra Enrollment Information

As many of you know, students traditionally enroll in the District 54 Instrumental Music Program in the spring of fourth grade and begin lessons in fifth grade. Due to our unique circumstances in the spring of 2020, instrumental music enrollment will be held once school resumes in the fall. In the meantime, we encourage fourth grade students and their parents to visit the District 54 website ( to view information about band and orchestra enrollment so that they are prepared to choose an instrument and join the fun! 

Aldrin PTA Birthday Books

Each month, the PTA provides a book for students celebrating birthdays.  This is a highlight for our children.  If your student celebrated or will celebrate a birthday March through July, we have included an envelope within your child’s pick up materials with his/her birthday book and a birthday pencil from the school.  Please be sure to check out Aldrin’s Morning Announcements to here the daily birthdays just like we do each morning at School.  Click the link:

Update on Yearbooks and Art to Remember

At this point, we still do not have a delivery date for either the yearbook or the Art to Remember projects.  Due to the Covid 19, there was a set-back in production which has impacted our delivery date.  If we do not receive these items until after the pick-up dates next week, we will arrange an alternative date/time for you to receive the items you ordered.  If by chance you did not get a chance to order a yearbook, we do plan to sell a limited amount when we return to school. 

2nd Grade iPads and Non-Returning D54 electronic Devices

Just a reminder, we will only be collecting the iPads from current 2nd graders and electronic devices from students who will NOT be returning to a District 54 school in the fall.  We will collect these devices on Friday, May 29th.  Below is the schedule for the drop off of these specific electronics. All other students will hold on to their devices for the fall.

Supply Pick-up/ Drop Off

Last week we communicated the D54 system for picking up student’s personal belongings as well as dropping off materials that belong to the school other than Chomebooks/iPads.  The materials that may belong to Aldrin would most likely be a library book or possibly a hard covered text book.  Math journals and social studies journals can remain at home.

In an effort to support our families, please click on the video link to see how pick-up and drop-off will work at Aldrin School.  Shout out to Mrs. Schultz’s family for their acting and filming abilities. This is a GREAT video.
