Summer Work Around the District 74 Campus
If you walk around the District 74 campus, you might notice some trucks and construction workers around Todd Hall. District 74 is getting ready for the start of school on August 12th and making many improvements both inside and outside of all three school buildings. Besides all of the buildings being thoroughly cleaned, some of the work and improvements around the District include: painting of classrooms, new carpeting in the hallways at Todd Hall, two new water fountains at both Rutledge and Todd, building envelope project at Rutledge and Lincoln Hall, tuckpointing, landscaping, working on playgrounds, and improvements at the entrance of the Todd Hall building, just to name a few.
Besides all the building and campus improvements, the tech team is busy getting new computers ready for the classrooms, students, and staff. Also, a new VoIP phone system throughout the District and a new website is in the works. Summer is a very busy and productive time at District 74 working hard for the start of the 2015-16 school year.
Congratulations to the CLASS OF 2015!

Many good thoughts and words of wisdom were spoken to the graduates by Dr. Weiss, Dr. Bailey, Board President Mr. Anderson, and students: Sarah B., Amy I., Mohammad L., and Nicholas L. Here are some of the special words of the evening:
"Do the right thing even if no one is looking"
"Do not be in a hurry to grow up too fast"
"Lincoln Hall is the best school and we excel in everything we do"
"We've had the best teachers that have prepared us well for high school and in a fun way"
"Curiousity leads us to new paths"
"Be kind; no matter how hard it is, treat others as you would like to be treated"
"We must strive to be successful"
"Always give back to your community"
"We have been given the tools to use for the rest of our lives"
Could not have been said any better! Congratulations and all the best to the CLASS OF 2015!

PARENT EDUCATION NIGHT
Thank you to all the parents that attended the Parent Education Night! This was the last in the series of three nights that were held during the 2014-15 school year.
Parents learned about MyOn, the new personalized literacy platform. MyOn will provide anytime and anywhere access to the largest library of enhanced digital books for your students just in time for summer! Children will be able to read in a safe, digital environment. Parents can read along with their child or the audio function will also assist a child with their reading.
Also, parents learned about different strategies to keep children safe and monitor them as being good digital citizens while on the internet. Parents learned about specific content to watch for while checking their children's electronic devices. There was information shared about new apps that children are talking about.
