nOTE FROM DR. FITZGERALD:  WE WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE THAT D97 HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY TO REPORT BULLYING OR PEER CONFLICT ONLINE! 

This tool will support students and our efforts in creating a positive learning environment that is equitable, inclusive and focused on the whole child. We appreciate the feedback our Julian Town Hall Students provided during this process. Here is a preview of the Report Form, that will be accessible on our D97 website. The form enables reporting of Bullying or Peer Conflict and that reporter can decide to do this anonymously as well as have a choice in how they would like the incident addressed. Completing the form will send notice to grade level assistant principals, the principal, and our school climate and culture coach. This notification will enable the school to respond swiftly and appropriately to the information shared within the Report Form.

Please Consider Joining the PTO Board for the 2019/20 School Year.

We are looking for people to help support the work we do to make sure our middle school is the best it can be. The open positions are:

  • Co-Presidents to help oversee PTO activities and plan bi-monthly community meetings.

  • Co-VP of Fundraising to help coordinate the PTOlunch fundraiser program.

  • Co-VP of Volunteer Coordination to recruit people to help with our events.

  • Co-VP of Programming to help coordinate events like the Back to School Picnic, Teacher/Staff dinners, and other school events.

  • Co-VP of Communications to write the weekly PTONewsletter.

  • Co-Treasurer to learn about and help handle budget business.

Our kids are becoming more independent but it is still vital that we maintain a vibrant, inclusive and connected community. And that means we need YOU to offer up some of your time and talents.
