Recently, the AJK library received a donation of STEM books from close friends of Mrs. Johnson-Hines in her memory.

Mrs. Johnson-Hines was a kind and loving person who loved life, people, art, and books! Sometimes she did it in secret, but all would agree that she expressed her love by sharing what she had with a caring heart.

In her loving memory, friends at Abbott collaborated to remember her kindness and to share with others at the same time. Several close relationships helped to make this donation possible.

Thank you to our friends at Abbott for their efforts to cherish the memory of her caring heart and love for books.

The Academy Kicks-off Hybrid Learning

Wearing their masks, ready with hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes,  AJK staff and members from the North Chicago Community Partners welcomed back Cadets for the first time since last March.

It was a successful 1st day back and Cadets were excited to see their teachers in person while practicing social distancing.  While some students attended classes face-to-face (or mask-to-mask), others were fully remote.

The hybrid model helps reduce the number of students in the building by moving some of the students online for remote learning. Eventually more cadets will be back at the Academy for in-person learning.
