Dear Frankfort 157-C families, 


I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to our entire school community for your continued partnership in making FSD 157-C a special place to educate and support our students. Despite unique obstacles, our team remains committed to our mission of serving all students in our three schools, and there are many student accomplishments to celebrate. 
For example, the Illinois State Board of Education recently released preliminary results from the Illinois Assessment of Readiness. This annual assessment is administered to students in grades three through eight, and measures students’ mastery of the Illinois Learning Standards in math and English language arts. It was taken by our FSD 157-C students last spring. While the results will not be officially finalized until April 2022, the preliminary data shows a strong performance from our students. Throughout the District, nearly 72% of students met or exceeded grade level standards in both math and English language arts combined. Our students’ high achievement is a testament to the support of our entire school community during the many challenges we faced throughout the 2020-2021 school year.   
In addition to our students’ academic accomplishments, many continue to thrive through extracurricular activities and experiences. Our athletic teams continue to stand out and some students had the chance to participate in the IESA State Tournaments for their respective teams that qualified this year. Our Band, Orchestra, and Chorus members participated in concerts this fall for the first time in two years. Students from Grand Prairie all the way through Hickory Creek have learned about the importance of service while leading various donation drives and care package programs to provide support for those in need or those serving our country.  


The first half of this school year has been one full of wonderful opportunities for growth, learning, and collaboration. All of us at Frankfort 157-C are excited for the second half of the school year, and the memorable experiences that it will bring. 
Thank you for your continued partnership. I wish you a very safe and restful winter break.
