Students from Mrs. Dignin's Drama class used their best acting skills to perform a reader's theater for their classmates. They have been learning how to incorporate emotion, vocal variation, and action into their performances. The students did a phenomenal job.
Conrady Junior High has been celebrating multicultural children's books by reading to our students! Teachers recorded themselves reading a passage from their favorite multicultural children's book. The videos are available for teachers to play to their classes. Students have really enjoyed listening to these great stories!
Students at Conrady designed a School Spirit themed mask in Ms. Brudzisz's art classes. View examples and their artist statements.
Dear Conrady Students, Staff and Parents,
An extraordinary time brings unusual challenges as we start the 2020-21 school year. Our hope is to make the Conrady experience as productive and fulfilling academically even in the presence of the constraints put before us. Reflecting on our first year as Principal and Assistant Principal, we have tried to ensure that all of our students, parents, staff, and community members are heard and their input respected, and that the school becomes the best learning community it can be because of all our stakeholders.
Every member of our staff has diligently worked to ensure the smoothest transition to this year’s hybrid learning schedule. Our Technology Department has worked to ensure smooth online meetings for remote learners. Our maintenance staff has worked to provide a safe and clean physical environment. Our teachers and paraprofessionals are working to ensure your student is both engaged and challenged academically. We are all committed to ensure that students feel warmly welcomed even as we physically distance in the building. There is a reason Conrady has been recognized for multiple awards over the years. We celebrate our successes while also continually striving for improvement.
Despite the unusual circumstances, we are still prioritizing daily attendance for all students, whether in person or remote. We are also continuing our PBIS program to encourage positive behaviors and attitudes. We celebrate our students progress academically, socially, and emotionally. We encourage our students to think of themselves as global citizens and to act accordingly.
We are honored by the trust you place in us as you send your students to school each day. It has never been more important for you to feel safe and supported by your school. We have high expectations for ourselves to provide that safe learning environment. We also have high expectations for our students. We expect them to use their time here to grow into well-rounded life-long learners who will meet with success in all their future endeavors.
We look forward to another amazing school year in service to our students, parents, and community.
Best to you all,
Ms. Adrienne Pavek, Principal
Mrs. Dorita McCabe, Assistant Principal
