What's Going On?

PTA Fundraiser a Success!

A huge thank you to all that attended our Staff vs. Student basketball game on Friday, February 5 and that continued the festivities by participating in our PTA Fundraisers at MOD Pizza and Menchie's! Through your help and participation, we raised over $200 that will directly benefit our students. THANK YOU!

No School on Monday, February 15

In celebration of Presidents' Day, District 93 will not have school on Monday, February 15. Sleep in and enjoy the day!

Drop Everything & Read in February

As part of its School Improvement Plan, Stratford students and staff will begin Drop Everything & Read for 30 minutes each week. Studies show that the best way to improve reading is by, you guessed it, READING! Students are asked to bring a hard copy of their reading material (magazine or book) with them each week. In February, D.E.A.R. will be on Fridays.
