This past Wednesday, Jane Addams Junior High hosted the Illinois State Board of Education, the District 54 Cabinet, and other honored guests.

We were so PROUD to represent District 54 and share all about our amazing students and staff. The group was able to experience a variety of classes during their visit including our Dual Language Japanese, Chinese Immersion, REACH and RISE programs along with STEM classrooms. All twenty or so of our guests were even able to witness our 770 students in “live” action during a couple of passing periods. The students were curious and awesome!

Our mantra of , , and was on full display during the visit.


Cooking Club was busy this month! Jack-o’-lantern Breakfast Quesadillas make for a delicious, healthy breakfast and super fun to “carve”! Oreo witch hats and peanut butter cup broom sticks were a spooky, sweet treat. Join us next month! New members are always welcome! 🎃

Happy National Custodian Day!

Thank you custodians for putting our students first, for going above and beyond, and for all that you do.


We would like to highlight the amazing work of our Girls’ Basketball teams. The teams and coaches, Mrs. Bianchin and Mr. Jalovec sponsored an Addams Pink Out event on Thursday to raise awareness for Breast Cancer and it was a rousing success. Many students took pride in wearing pink to school and the gym was packed after school for our games against Eisenhower Junior High. In addition, we would like to wish our student athletes best of luck at the District 54 Girls’ Basketball Tournament this coming week.
