Teacher Appreciation Week

The 2015 celebration of Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week begins Monday, May 4th. Thank you to our families and community members who help to make this a special occasion for our District 81 employees each year!


This is a perfect opportunity to extend our appreciation for the contributions teachers have made in the lives of our children.


A short note is a very special and unique way of showing gratitude. I encourage you to recognize the accomplishment of our teaching staff during this week.


We will also celebrate "National Nurses Day" on Wednesday, May 6th.

Registration Open!

All District 81 families should have received a letter in the mail regarding registration for the 2015-2016 school year. The mailing contained a letter with steps for registration, a proof of residency form, as well as directions on how to set up a parent account on PowerSchools to complete the registration packet online.


If you did not receive this letter in the mail, please contact the school office to ensure we have the correct address on file for your family.


Registration information can be found on our district website, or by clicking the link here.

Keep Contact Information Current

Please be diligent to keep your child's information current with our school office. If you have new telephone numbers, new email, or new emergency contact information, please make sure to let our office staff know. Thank you!
