Residents invited to Aldrich Expo

Hillary Gavan/Beloit Daily News Aldrich Intermediate School students are inviting the community to the school’s expo from 5- 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25. Anyone is welcome to come explore Aldrich.

BELOIT — The band and orchestra will be playing, and the choir will be singing.

Aldrich Intermediate School students are inviting their families and the community to attend the Aldrich Expo and Math Night from 5 - 7 p.m. on April 25. Although the event has particular focus on incoming third graders and Aldrich families, anyone in the community is invited to come and see all the good things happening at their neighborhood school.

“Aldrich is a great place to be, with committed teachers, great staff and exciting opportunities for all kids. We invite you to come in and see what we are all about,” Principal Joe Vrydaghs said.

Vrydaghs explained how all the intermediate schools as well as the high school hold expos in the spring. At Aldrich, students and families get to meet teachers, learn about the different curriculum in their upcoming grade as well as tour the school. Guests also will be exposed to all math programing and learn how students use iPads and textbooks to learn.

Aramark will be providing sandwiches, beverages and snacks.

Aldrichs various community partners who will have booths at the expo are: Stateline Boys and Girls Club, Stateline Family YMCA, Community Action Inc., Beloit College, the school districts health and wellness program, Beloit Health System, Beloit Parks and Recreation, Stateline Mental Health Services, Beloit Memorial High Schools Counseling Care program, Latino Services, the districts career counseling services and the schools alcohol and drug education program.

Vrydaghs expects up to 40 partners to attend and 300 to 400 people to attend.

Vrydaghs said the event is also good for anyone who is interested in enrolling a child at Aldrich.

“We are putting everything we have on display and want the community to become aware of all the great activity and opportunity at Aldrich,” Vrydaghs said.

Because the transition of a third grader to fourth grade can be challenging, Vrydaghs said the school gives three opportunities to get acclimated to Aldrich before the first day of school. The first event, the expo, allows students the opportunity to meet their teachers, get a tour with a counselor and see where their classroom and locker will be.

Third graders will also have a visit day in May and an open house in late August. Robinson, Todd and Merrill are the feeder schools for Aldrich.
