McClure Named National Blue Ribbon School!
Earlier today, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan's office recognized McClure Junior High School as one of only 304 schools across the country to receive the prestigious 2010 National Blue Ribbon School Award!

The Illinois State Board of Education nominated McClure as one of twenty schools from our State to be considered by the Department of Education for what is considered to be the highest award given to a school for sustained excellence in student performance and/or improvement over time. In receiving this award, it is important to know:
* McClure is one of 304 public/private schools named in 2010, out of 132,000 public/private schools across the U.S.
* 420 schools were nominated by their States for this award. The 304 schools named represents 72.4% of those nominated.
* Illinois had 19 schools recognized for this award; 9 were middle schools.
* There were 84 middle schools recognized from across the country.

Principal Dan Chick and a teacher representative from McClure will be recognized at a ceremony presided by Secretary Duncan in Washington, DC on November 15 and 16.

Congratulations, McClure!

Laidlaw Construction Update


 Dear Laidlaw Families,

As you can see, the construction project at Laidlaw has come a long way in the past four weeks. We are incredibly excited about all of the opportunities that will be provided with the new and remodeled spaces.  We have received many questions from parents regarding the status of the project, so we thought it an optimal time to update you on our most current information, as we hit the one-month mark prior to the start of the new school year.

Our general contractor, Henry Brothers, and architects, DLA, have informed us that all primary instructional spaces - including the new kindergarten classrooms, Early Childhood Education (ECE) spaces, and the new second floor classroom (5-K) - will be completed prior to the first day of school (September 2). As well, all remodeled/updated spaces within the original building will also be completed in advance of September 2. This will allow all students to begin the school year in their primary classroom space as of the first day of school.

However, as expected, there are areas of the new addition which will not be ready for day one due to the six-week permit delay we experienced at the onset of the project – a delay we did not experience at Field Park, Forest Hills, or McClure. Because of this delay, we expect that the gymnasium, reading room/office, and building-wide air conditioning are unlikely to be fully usable prior to September 30. We do expect that all new building spaces and air conditioning will be completed some time prior to October 1.

If, for any reason, any of the new spaces noted above are not completed, we do have alternative plans at the ready, and we will communicate and implement them, as necessary. These alternative plans include keeping all of our students at Laidlaw in alternative spaces within the building.

You may be wondering what the impact of these plans will be on your child. We would like to reiterate that although we do foresee some delays with utilizing our gym space, school will start as scheduled on Tuesday, September 2nd.  We hope to continue the tradition where students come to Laidlaw and drop off supplies and meet teachers prior to the first day of school, but plans related to this will depend on construction progress over the next three weeks – plans which will be communicated to you as they become clearer to us. As well, physical educational classes will be taking place outdoors, and students will be eating lunch in their classrooms to start the year. But, as we noted above, we anticipate that these alternative plans will be very temporary, with normal operations and full building access beginning in early-October.

If you would like to see how the building is looking “up close and from the inside,” please go to our website and click on this link: Construction Movie Week by Week

We will continue to keep you abreast of the latest construction updates. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions or concerns. And, we look forward to seeing you and your child(ren) very soon in our new and improved building!
