First Day of School Message From Mrs. Thomas

July 1, 2019

  Greetings Bloomington Junior High School Families!

 We hope that you are enjoying a wonderful summer break. Plans are underway for the upcoming school year and we are excited to meet our new students and welcome back our returning students!

 Open House for 6th grade students will be on Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 4:30-5:30 p.m.  Students will have an opportunity to meet their teachers, see where their classrooms are located, and decorate their lockers.

 The first day of school, Monday, August 19, 2019, will be for sixth graders ONLY. This will be a regular school day from 8:00 am – 2:45 pm. The purpose of having only sixth graders in school on the first day is to provide them with adequate time to become familiar with our building and procedures. Parents and/or guardians of sixth grade students are also invited to attend in the morning and there will be special activities for you.

 The first day of school for all students will be on Tuesday, August 20th. During the first week of school, Open House for 8th grade will be August 20th and 7th grade will be August 22nd.  Times for these Open Houses has yet to be determined and will be included in future mailings.

 As always, please contact the school at (309) 827-0086 if you have any questions.

 We look forward to seeing all 6th graders on August 19th and look forward to seeing everyone else on August 20th!


Enjoy your break!
