Thank you staff and teachers!

Schools are celebrating national Staff and Teacher Appreciation Week this week. Thank you parents and PTO for making this a truly special week! We are also asking our school community of Twitter users to celebrate with a hashtag #ThankaTeacher and share with @ccsd181.


Donation to Foundation honors teachers

D181 families can make a donation to the District 18 Foundation to honor a teacher or staff for Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. The teacher or staff member will then receive a certificate and a letter with the family’s special message in it.  For teachers and staff to receive their certificate and letter by Friday, May 11, please submit the information to the Foundation by Wednesday, May 9 at 5pm. You can honor as many teachers/staff as you wish with one donation. Here is the link for more information and the submittal form.



Join us for discussion on religious observances and holidays related to the school calendar

 School District 181 is again forming a short-term task force of D181 parents, staff, and community members to discuss observances and holidays and how it relates to the school day and school calendar. Specifically, we hope to share information about critical dates during the school year and to obtain feedback about religious and other observances and holidays.

The meeting will be held Thursday, May 17 at 9 a.m. at the District Administration Center, 115 W. 55thSt. Clarendon Hills, IL. Please click hereto register so we can plan appropriately for space and handouts. If you are unable to attend, but have thoughts you would like to share, as always, we welcome your feedback. Please email Faith Behr at fbehr@d181.orgor call 630-861-4900 if you have questions.
