Thoughts from Dr. Pacatte
Congratulations Gurnee District 56 Retirees!
At the end of the school year, all school districts face the reality of saying “Thank you and Good-bye” to a small group of employees who have chosen to retire and move on to their new chapter. This year is no different. I’d like to take this time to recognize the District 56 staff who are, or will be, wrapping up their career in the coming weeks. Thank you for everything you have done for our students, families, and colleagues over the years. Each and everyone of you can look back and know you have a legacy of hard work on behalf of others to show for your time and effort. You will see that there are administrators, teachers, and support staff included in this year’s group of retirees. Each of these employees were pivotal to our success.
