Conrady students and staff kicked off the new academic year Friday with a superhero theme and a schoolwide assembly that featured dancing, teacher demonstrations, and lots of fun and games. Geared toward enforcing positive behaviors, the assembly reinforced the need for students to be responsible and on task, as well as acting safe and respecting others. Dean of Students Mr. Ramsey (above, left) emceed the festivities for all classes, enlisting teachers and students for quizzes and performances.

Conrady band students recently performed their Spring (socially-distanced/no audience/virtual) Concert. The students were very excited to play in their large groups again, and each band did a GREAT job with their pieces. Special recognition goes out to the 8th graders on their final performance as Conrady students! The students would like to thank the school & district administration for their support to allow this to happen.
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!
Dear Conrady Students, Staff and Parents,
Welcome to Conrady Jr. High for the 2021-2022 school year. Our goals are to make the experience here as productive and fulfilling academically even in the presence of a continuing pandemic. We are working very hard to ensure that our students are happy, healthy, and learning every day. We are also committed to ensuring that our parents are heard and their input is always welcome. We are a stronger team if we work together as parents, educators, and community.
Every person at Conrady is committed to supporting our students as we transition into our completely in-person school year. We are maintaining safe social distancing with the students in the building and on the buses. If there is a close contact exposure and your student has been identified, you will receive a call from our school and with guidance from the Nurse and CDC, we will take the necessary precautions. Our maintenance staff is working hard every day 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 committed to ensure that students feel warmly welcomed even as we physically distance ourselves in the building.
We are taking every measure possible to keep our students in school healthy and attendance is a priority, as always. If your student will not be in attendance, please make sure you call our attendance line (708)598-5743 to report the absence.
We are continuing to promote a positive environment this year with our PBIS program. We started the year with our first assembly and the focuses are respect, on task behaviors, acting safe, and being responsible. We are striving to achieve an environment of global thinkers and have students acting accordingly.
We are honored that you have given us the opportunity to work with your children each day. It has always and will continue to be a wonderful, safe, and fun environment here at Conrady. We hope that all our students feel proud to be part of our Conrady family. We have high expectations for ourselves to provide the best and safest learning environment. Our goal is for your children to grow into life-long learners who will meet success throughout 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
