Welcome to Ms. Papadakis' classroom website!

 
Greetings Parents and Students,
  
   Welcome back to another school year.  I am excited about working with your children and challenging them to do their best.  I ask that you encourage and support them as they begin a very important year.
 
    Our day usually begins with universal breakfast, CALM activity which leads core subjects.  Please have your child arrive at school on time so that she or he won't miss out on their education.

    It is imperative that you sit down with your child and access the parent portal, together.  This should be done regularly.  Please be proactive.

    Please know that cumulative grades (an average of all four grading periods in each subject) of 7th graders will be forwarded on with all high school applications, as well as MAP scores, attendance (including tardies), and citizenship (behavior and social habits).
  
    Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, which is best, at dmpapadakis@cps.edu or at 773-534-5840. I'm generally available at school between 7:30 and 2:30 p. m.  
  
   Thanks and I hope that you find this website helpful.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ms. Papadakis
