School Raises $1,869 for Koala Protection

Teachers engaged students in a variety of activities that centered around the Koala and the importance of protecting the species. Thanks to family and staff donations Sprague collected $1,869 during its Koins for Koalas fundraiser


The school "adopted" koalas from the WWF in Australia. By adopting koalas, the school will send the money it collected to the WWF organization to help protect and care for this nearly extinct species. WWF is one of Australia’s most trusted conservation organizations.


Looking for cute koala spirit wear? Support the Koala fundraiser by purchasing Koala spirit wear. For pictures of some of the koala activities, please visit the school's Facebook page.

We're Almost There!

We only need six Sprague parents to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. We need a 20 percent response rate in order to read the results and if six parents complete the survey we'll have met our goal. Please consider participating in the school climate and learning conditions survey. This 10-minute survey is a great way for D103 parents to provide input into the five indicators from the survey that affect and predict school success:

  • Effective Leaders

  • Collaborative Teachers

  • Involved Families

  • Supportive Environments

  • Ambitious Instruction
