Dear AIM Families-
As you may have seen, on Tuesday afternoon Chicago Public Schools (CPS) shared a tentative timeline for returning to school based on public health conditions and guidance. Earlier this week, we shared our tentative timeline:
January 25, 2021, aligned with the start of Quarter 3, would be the first date we could possibly allow for Community Care, or potential in-person learning scenarios.

NEED HELP? OFFICE HOURS! Every Tuesday and Thursday after 2:30pm, teachers will be hosting office hours as an additional time to connect with students and support them with their work.

If you have any questions about office hours with your student, please email your student's teacher or reach out to them on Remind.
WHY THE ARTS MATTER AT AIM FOR COLLEGE & CAREER
Student Choice & Voice is back! A survey will be completed during Arts classes where students choose 1 of 2 learning paths that will help them choose their Semester 2 discipline classes that begin mid January 2021. The learning path options are: Dance/Music OR Literary arts /Visual arts. Our semester 2 classes will have a central focus of: "AN EXPLORATION OF GROUP IDENTITY THROUGH THE WIZ"
Past due assignments are still being accepted. Students will apply the ideas and skills from Q1 into current Q2 assignments, which lay the foundation for our interdisciplinary showcase of “The Wiz” for Semester 2.
