Picture Information

Attention Senior Parents- September 23rd - September 26th are the final days of senior portraits. These senior portraits are the way that your student will be pictured in the yearbook as we do not use ID photos for seniors. The Yearbook only session is no cost to you, but packages are available if you would like to purchase senior portraits. If your senior wants to reschedule their appointment, please use the contact information listed here. That is (815) 433-1766 and their email is custserv@hrimaging.com or they can log in at www.rootseniors.com and reschedule or change their session. The HR Imaging system will automatically send an email reminder a few days prior to your student's appointment. Senior appointments will take place in the auditorium foyer at St. Charles North.

Picture Retakes

Attention Freshmen-Junior Parents- If your student needs to retake their photo because they do not care for their ID photo and would like a different photo to appear in the yearbook, they will be able to do that on Tuesday, October 1st. Retakes will take place all periods of the school day in the Cafeteria Foyer at St. Charles North. Your student should stop by during their lunch or study hall period to have their photo retaken.

Yearbook Info

Do you still need to purchase a yearbook for the 2019-2020 school year? If you want to purchase a yearbook for next year, please do so using Pushcoin or by sending a check addressed to St. Charles North Attn: Lindsay Boynton for $45. You want to ensure that you have this wonderful piece created by students for students to help them remember their high school experience. If you are unsure if you have already purchased a yearbook, you can e-mail Lindsay.Boynton@d303.org to verify!

1 in 10 People Need a NEW MATTRESS!

If you think a new mattress is in your future and you are waiting for the right time to buy, then this is the sale for you!

DECA, FCCLA, Mock Trial, NBHS, and INCubator invite you to attend our 4th Annual Mattress Fundraiser which will take place on Saturday, September 28 from 10AM-5PM at St. Charles North.

The mobile showroom, set up in the NHS cafeteria, will give you a chance to "test drive" name brand mattresses before you buy. These mattresses are priced up to 50% below retail and include Simmons, Beautyrest, Restonic, and Malouf. Pillows, adjustable bases, and sheets are also available.

Please mark your calendars so you don't miss out on the chance to get a great mattress at a great price and help support our clubs! We look forward to seeing you there!

We need your help!

Mark Your Calendars! Kick-a-thon will be at St. Charles East on October 4 during the Crosstown Classic. The event will occur between the Sophomore and Varsity Football games. The money that is raised benefits the local chapter of the American Cancer Society, Living Well Cancer Resource Center in Geneva, and Fox Valley Food for Health.

Last year, thanks to our amazing community, we were able to donate $71,527.58! If you would like to be a part of this incredible event, we have many different ways that you can show your support!
