Here’s the one time you want to get sent to the principal’s office. In advance of the start of the 2012-13 school year, Jahn Elementary is holding a meet-and-greet with the school’s new principal, Stephanie Bloom, on Aug. 16, 6 p.m., 3149 N. Wolcott. The informal get-together provides parents and community members with an opportunity to become acquainted with and ask any questions of the new administration.
Bloom is a former deputy chief of schools for the Chicago Public Schools’ Fullerton Network; she was selected by Jahn’s LSC in June to replace retiring principal Sulma Grigalunas.
On Aug. 19, the school is holding a kick-off picnic for pre-k and kindergarten students and their families at Hamlin Park, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.; food and drinks will be provided. Children and adults alike will have the chance to make new BFFs.
Jahn is still looking to fill two community seats on its LSC. The Council’s first meeting is scheduled for Sept. 12 at 6 p.m.
