Big Hollow School District Mission and Vision
Our Vision: "Big Hollow School District #38 will be a model of student achievement for elementary school districts in the State of Illinois."
Our Mission: "Inspiring a diverse school community to be passionate and empathetic learners."
This week is Attendance Week! Please help us to celebrate and bring your child to school every day this week. Classrooms will be competing for the best attendance and the winner(s) will receive a popcorn party! Students also will receive a raffle ticket for each day they come to school, and will be entered to win Johnny Pops ice cream!
Students in grades K-4 will also participate in Aims+ testing. Results of Benchmark testing allows teachers to better plan instruction for their students. Information gathered after analyzing data helps us to plan instructional intervention for our students.

We recently opened a PBIS student store and could use donations of small prizes (see picture) for students to be able to "purchase" with their STARbucks! If you have any small prizes hanging around your home that you would like to donate, we would need the items in quantities of 30 or more so that students can plan out their purchases. You can send in the items to either the Primary or Elementary office. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!!!
All Big Hollow students are STAR students! Big Hollow students will be expected to demonstrate Safety, Take Responsibility, keep a positive Attitude, and always be Respectful. Many students have earned rewards and positive behavior referrals for being positive role models. If you would like to contribute and help to our PBIS program, please contact us. :)
PLEASE PARTNER WITH US!!!
