Future Planning Survey for Parents

At the beginning of next school year, we will restart our work on the strategic plan that we had to put on pause last year. The district has engaged with School Perceptions to administer a future planning survey to all District 41 parents. This will help the district learn more about the priorities we had identified through the previous planning sessions and inform us about how to restart the process.

Please look for the survey in your email inboxes. It was sent out May 27 and reminder emails have followed from School Perceptions. The survey will be open through June 2. School Perceptions will receive all of the parent responses directly and will compile the data for us. The survey will be available in both English and Spanish.

Glenbard West Graduates Visit Churchill

Recent graduates of Glenbard West High School visited Churchill School this week. The Hilltopper graduates toured the hallways and classrooms they once traveled as Churchill Timberwolves. The graduates reunited with former teachers and also broke out into Q&A sessions in various classrooms to answer questions from current Churchill students.
