I can't believe the fun run was just MONDAY! Whew!!! WOW what an event for our staff and most of all Wild Rose students. We ran, we skipped, hopped, danced and moved around and around during each and every P.E. period. HUGE Thanks to our PTO, P.E. Department, Student Council, Color Run Volunteers and ALL WHO DONATED!! I don't have a final total just yet, but it's AMAZING the generosity from our community THANK YOU!!! We all had so much fun!!

Fall Celebrations/Halloween Parade and Celebration

We will have an OUTDOOR parade on Friday, October 27 @ 1:35 on the blacktop of the playground in the back of the building. Parents can line-up along the outline of the blacktop. Students will parade by grade level from kindergarten to fifth grade for all to see. If we have sever inclement weather the parade will be live streamed for family viewing from home.


  • No fake weapons allowed at school
  • No scary, blood, gory or costumes that encourage violence
  • Costumes must be appropriate for school
  • Students will still be required to wear school mask, therefore and additional mask would be unsafe for students to ensure.

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to a fun event.

Dear Wild Rose Families,

This letter is to inform you about Erin’s Law (Illinois Public Act 097-1147), an Illinois law passed in February, 2011 that requires public schools to provide child sexual abuse prevention education for all children in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grades. Named after sexual abuse survivor Erin Merryn, Erin’s Law will be implemented again this year in all District 303 Schools. Please note that Erin’s Law is not connected to The Keeping Youth Safe & Healthy Act (Senate Bill 818).

Between now and the end of the school year, several lessons will be facilitated by Mrs. Heidi Sheridan, school social worker, along with the classroom teacher utilizing the Second Step Child Protection Unit . This age-appropriate instruction will help students recognize unsafe situations, keep themselves safe, and learn how to respond to unsafe situations. Common themes across all grade levels include:

  • Identifying safe touch versus unsafe or unwanted touch

  • The Safety Rule About Touching (The Touching Rule): Private areas are not for others to touch, except to keep a child clean and healthy

  • Steps to Stay Safe

  • Understanding the difference between good and bad secret
