This week was the culmination of everything we work towards all year: GRANT DAY! Our mission is every student, every school, every day. To that end, we provided the funding, $173,930, for 33 grants to enhance the educational experiences for our kids. Look for the balloons and signs at your student’s school or click on this link to scroll through the document listing the grants awarded. We literally couldn’t do this without your support. Thank you to our record number of donor families who show up to events, pledge support and believe in this cause as much as we do!
District 67 has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. In 2017 and 2018 Deer Path Middle School received the Support Music Merit Award - a single school designation. This is the first year that the entire District received the designation of being a part of the 2019 Best Communities for Music Education.
Families, staff, and community members are cordially invited to attend a reception to honor the retirement of Thompson Ford and Kent Novit from the Lake Forest School District 67 Board of Education, and to welcome incoming Board Members Richard Chun, Justin Engelland, and returning Board Member Suzanne Sands.
