Welcome Jaguar Parents
We are excited that you are here and that you chose us to be on this journey with your family as we gear up for college. Communicating with you is very important to us, and we hope that you find the information here helpful. We want to begin by thanking you for trusting us with your child’s education. We realize that attending Pritzker is a choice, and we honor that choice with a great sense of pride and responsibility.
Our mission is that all students will use their college degrees and careers “achieve greatness, and share that greatness with others”. To see this mission to fruition, we have to work closely together. We steadfastly feel that the educational and character development of your student hinges on our partnership. Here are three things we hope you can support your student with as we partner with you on this journey:
1) High Expectations For Academics and Behavior
We need you to make sure that they are doing their homework. Every child is given an agenda that contains daily homework assignments. Please go over their assignments with them every night to make sure their homework is being completed. We also need you to stand behind our student code of conduct with us as we use it to help our students understand boundaries and develop strength in character.
2) A Home Environment That Encourages Learning
It is essential that we have your support. We need to make sure that your child is eating healthy at home, getting sufficient sleep, and coming to school on time. Your child needs a safe place to study, free of interruptions from the television, video games, and sibling disruptions.
3) Parental Involvement in School and Local Community
Additionally, every guardian has access to their child’s grades and the results of every class assignment via the Internet through Powerschool. Please learn how to access these grades and view them weekly on the Internet. We also need to you be aware of your child’s grades. Please review and sign your child’s newsletter provided each week. Additionally, we have a Parent Advisory Council we would love to see you participate in. Please be on the lookout for future communication and check out our PAC link in our website.
Thank you for your continued support of your children and our work to best prepare them for future success in college and beyond. Welcome to the Jaguar Family!
