Conrady students joined Principal Adrienne Pavek, Assistant Principal Dorita McCabe and Basketball Coach Frank Mateja Tuesday night for a fundraiser at the Chipotle restaurant in Bridgeview. A portion of the proceeds went to fund the school PTSA. We thank all of the parents, students, and staff who helped make the evening a success.
Conrady students put their best (costumed) faces forward Friday for the annual Fall Bash celebration. In addition to a deejay offering up dance mixes for students in the main gym, students also used the back gym for makeshift basketball games. There were also snacks and refreshments to keep the party going. Thanks again to all the parents and staff who helped make the night a success.

Dear Conrady Students, Staff and Parents,
I am very excited to serve all of you in my first year as your principal. My hope is to make this year a successful one at every level: academically, athletically and as a school community. I have worked at Conrady Junior High School in many different roles. I was initially hired by North Palos District 117 as a mathematics interventionist to help with ISAT preparation. From 2006 - 2015, I taught mathematics to sixth - through eighth-grade students. It was my pleasure to serve as the Mathematics and Science Team Leader from 2015 - 2018. Last Fall I was hired as Conrady’s Assistant Principal. I am so grateful and proud to be the successor of Mr. Anderson’s tenure at Conrady.
Our staff continues to engage in the review and revision of our instructional programs to ensure all students are performing at the highest levels in the classroom. Last year Conrady was recognized as an Exemplary School on the Illinois Report Card. We take these data and celebrate our students’ success and also look for areas to increase student achievement in the classroom. Attendance numbers continue to rise at Conrady and throughout our district. Our PBIS programming is starting to make a difference in the positive behaviors and attitudes of all stakeholders at the school. We take great pride in knowing our students achieve academically, but there is an equal need to recognize public responsibility and citizenship. One of our core values is to “Be the Best for the World.”
We take seriously the trust you place in us by sending your children to our school every day, and we work hard to make students and families feel safe and supported. Our staff plans engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We have high expectations for our students, and we have high expectations for ourselves to help all Conrady students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. We aim to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in middle school but also in high school, career, relationships, and life-long learning.
I am looking forward to another amazing school year in service to our students, parents, and community.
Best to you all,
Ms. Adrienne Pavek, Principal
