Happy Halloween from 109!
We had a spirited day across the district! Here are a few highlights from the buildings:
Starting Friday: 109 Gives Back!
Join in on our annual districtwide drive to benefit the West Deerfield Township Food Pantry. Each school has been assigned items to focus on so we can ensure that the food pantry has a wide variety of things to distribute! All donations can be dropped off in the box inside each building.
The BOE Recap
The Board of Education held their October meeting last week. A big thanks to the Caruso Philanthropy Club who joined us to talk about two upcoming initiatives. Below is the recap of the meeting.
What's Good in 109?
There are so many GOOD things going on in our buildings and around our district each day... we do our best to try and capture it and bring it to you!
We were thrilled to be part of the Deerfield Park District's Halloween Hoopla (below) and CJ & Sammy helped pass out treats!
We hosted a dinner gathering of elected officials from across the village to collaborate and share updates about what each organization is working on. We are fortunate to be in a community with so many great partnerships! Thank you to the Village of Deerfield, Deerfield Park District, Deerfield Police Department, Deerfield Bannockburn Fire Department, Deerfield Public Library, and West Deerfield Township for your attendance!
Below: 6th graders at Caruso had an AWESOME rewards day last week competing in all sorts of team-building games and activities during the recent half day. It was a reward for all of the hard work and good behavior they have exhibited to start the year!
