Principal’s Message for May 26th

Sections on this page


As the year winds down, we would like to thank all of our parents and students for their support this past school year.  This year certainly didn’t end the way we are used to but with everyone working together we still felt the strong school community we are accustomed to.  We were in awe the way our families pulled together to support our teachers’ lessons and ensure our students received a strong education.  Thank you!

District 54 Virtual Learning University
Are you searching for an innovative way to empower your children over the summer? Are you looking for a comprehensive approach to summer learning that combats boredom and keeps everyone engaged? Look no further! Visit the School District 54 Virtual Learning University to tackle challenges for literacy, math, science, social science, social-emotional learning, language and culture too!  Each area has multiple challenges or a toolkit to keep your children’s minds focused and active throughout the summer weeks! Within each category you will find family activities, individual activities and possible places to visit in our community and surrounding areas.  We hope you’ll encourage your children to visit our Virtual Learning University often throughout the summer to challenge themselves and to keep your family learning together. Click here to access the Virtual Learning University or find the link under Popular Links on the District 54 website.

Grades and Report Cards
Report Cards will be available online within the District 54 Parent Portal starting June 2nd.  An email will be sent to you once your child’s report card is available.

In accordance with the Illinois State Board of Education guidelines, report card grades for the third trimester will be designated as Pass or Incomplete. Final year end grades for students in fourth through eighth grade will reflect second trimester grades or higher as evaluated by student work across the third trimester.

We hope that all families will check the report cards and use the information to celebrate with their children their academic successes. We are all very proud of our students.
