Dear FSD 157-C Families, 
Thank you to all who attended parent-teacher conferences last week. Seeing so many families both in our schools and through the virtual conference format was an important reminder your involvement and partnership are vital to the success of our Frankfort 157-C students.
As we enter the season of giving, all three of our schools are continuing their traditions of giving back to those in need near and far. At Hickory Creek Middle School, students, families and staff participate in a holiday gift drive for students who attend Cesar E. Chavez Multicultural Academic Center in Chicago to help make their holidays a little brighter. At Chelsea Intermediate School, students, families, and staff participated in the annual Stack the Stock event, donating non-perishable food items to the Frankfort Township Food Pantry to ensure local families in need do not go hungry during the holidays. Collectively, the Chelsea community collected more than 1,500 items for the pantry. At Grand Prairie Elementary School, students, families, and staff collected donations for U.S. military troops both overseas and at home. Candy, snacks, small holiday decorations, toiletries, socks, games, and other items were assembled into 80 care packages for service members. Boxes also include handwritten cards from students.  

The generosity of our entire District community is amazing, and initiatives like these teach our students the value of giving and helping others.  We are incredibly grateful for the supportive members of our community who set great examples for our students. We hope you have a safe and restful holiday season and a wonderful end to 2021.  
Doug Wernet,
