Dear Budlong Families,


With only two more days to go, we close out another school year, and let us celebrate the accomplishments of our students. From singing and dancing in Budlong Meets Broadway, viewing the Bud-ing Artists Gallery, competing in spelling bees, attending awards assemblies, conducting science experiments, travelling to college visits, to walking in the graduation processional, 2016-17 gave us memories that will make us smile for years to come.


Thank you to all of our parent groups and parent volunteers. Your help and input is greatly appreciated. We cannot do all we do for our students without you! We will be hosting one final meeting of the year for FOB, Friends of Budlong, so please do check the website for location, date, and time. I encourage you to attend and meet current and prospective Budlong families.


Below is information regarding registration for next year. Have a great summer, and I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall!


Naomi Nakayama, Principal

CPS 20% for 20%

Public Education, the Great Equalizer for Children Everywhere—But Not in Chicago


Chicagoans contribute 20 percent of the state income tax, and CPS students make up 20 percent of the state’s enrollment—but CPS students only receive 15 percent of the state’s funding.

The missing 5% is almost $500 million this year alone enough to save teachers and class sizes. For every $1 students across Illinois get, CPS students only get $0.74.
