8th grade bash

The 8th Grade Bash is quickly approaching! Melanie McQueen has graciously offered to chair this event and has some great ideas to increase student involvement in the planning stages. However, she will need some parent leads to help make this happen. If you are interested in helping as a parent lead (or have questions about what this entails), please contact Melanie. A Sign Up Genius will be distributed after Spring Break to sign up for other positions needed that night.

get to know your pto

Last year, 787 of our Julian students engaged in one-of-a-kind, hands-on projects in science, architecture, and technology - all free of charge thanks to the support of the Oak Park Education Foundation. We saw wonderful moments of real-world connections. And, the PTO just donated $3,500 to OPEF to help keep these opportunities available for our students. 


The Percy Julian Middle School Parents page is a great way to communicate with other parents and ask questions about your school related events and issues. Request to join be clicking the link.
