Cal's Angels - Just Shave It!

The Cal’s Angels “Just Shave it” event is coming up on Sunday, April 24th 2022 at Pollyanna Brewery in St. Charles from 12:00-3:00. Students, teachers, and community members will come together to Just Shave It together to support Cal’s Angels Pediatric Cancer Foundation – granting wishes, raising awareness and funding research to help fight childhood cancer.

We would love for you to join Team Jimmy, in honor of a former Ferson Creek Elementary student, to shave your head, cut your hair to donate or to donate/fundraise only. This QR code will lead you to our page.

We will also be raising money in school next week! You can support the team by buying hair extensions (that clip in) or Cal’s Angels bracelets. You can ONLY buy items through D303 Pushcoin and they will be delivered to your child in class next Friday, April 22nd. The window will be open from Wednesday April 13-Thursday April 21.


We will also be doing a whole school change collection! Send your child to school with their spare change and help to fill up our class containers! Let’s see how much we can raise for a good cause! We will be adding up our change on Thursday night to see how much we raised as a whole school.

If we raise $1,000 as a school (spare change, online donations, Cal’s spirit sales) will celebrate with a whole building dance party Friday afternoon! Please join in the fun!

Equity Audit Update

As part of the district’s equity audit, students, staff, and families have been randomly selected to participate in focus groups to give them an opportunity to share their thoughts on our district’s strengths, areas of need, and long-term opportunities for providing the best educational experience for all students. The focus groups will be led by our partners in the equity audit process- the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC). If you were not randomly selected to participate in a focus group and would like to provide written responses to the focus group questions, please visit the District 303 website and complete the intake form with the email address used in Home Access Center (HAC). Once your email has been verified, you will be sent a link to the questionnaire.

We thank you for your commitment to equity in education, and we are excited about this next step in gathering the voices of our district so that we can create a comprehensive plan.
