Dear Frankfort School District 157-C Families,  

It is difficult to believe, but we are approaching the final stretch of the 2021-2022 school year. From field days and end-of-year assemblies to step-up-days and graduation, we are eager to celebrate our students and recognize their many accomplishments while ending the school year on a positive note. Please review your child’s school newsletter below and check the District calendar for all the exciting upcoming events here. 

May is the month where we formally honor and recognize some of our most valuable team members: our teachers and nurses. Thank you, teachers, for your unwavering dedication to Frankfort School District 157-C. We are grateful to have such incredible educators guiding our students. We look forward to celebrating our teachers May 2-6 during Teacher Appreciation Week. We are happy to work with our Family School Partnership (FSP) to make it a special week of recognition. In addition, we will honor our terrific school nurses on Wednesday, May 11 for National School Nurse Day. Many students visit our nurses daily for a plethora of reasons, and we know they are always in good hands. Thank you, school nurses, for being such an important part of the fabric of our schools.  

The FSD 157-C Education Foundation is hosting a spring benefit on Friday, May 13 and an online auction from May 9 – May 13. The funds that are raised are provided to teachers who wrote grants to purchase and implement creative ideas that help to promote educational growth and unique experiences in our classrooms. Over the years, support from the Education Foundation has assisted Frankfort School District 157-C in the students’ achievement and growth. Visit www.ef157c.com for more information and to consider bidding on the auction items.

Beginning Monday, May 2, our lunchrooms will return to a traditional setup for our students at lunch tables. Students will no longer sit at individual desks. However, we know that some will continue to desire socially distanced seating, and therefore, there is an option at each school for students who still wish to do so. If you would like to request this for your child, please contact your child’s principal.  

Finally, I want to correct an error I made when referencing graduation information in my previous communication. I inadvertently listed graduation as being on a Saturday. To all parents of graduating students, I apologize for this confusion and confirm that graduation is Sunday, May 22 at 2 PM at Lincoln-Way West.  

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to end the school year in strong fashion.
