SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS
We are collecting items beginning November 10 and concluding on November 17th to create care packages that will be delivered to our current service men and women. We know that these care packages mean a lot to these men and women that are unable to be home with their families over the upcoming holidays. A letter will be sent home on Friday, November 3, 2017 with more details.

SIX FLAGS READ TO SUCCEED

ERIN"S LAW PRESENTATIONS
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12.

Our presentations will occur in November and January.
