On August 16 more than 3,600 students came through the doors of our seven schools -- followed by 205 First Step preschoolers on August 17 -- and we're ready for a fantastic year. District 63 is committed to providing a diverse learning environment that ensures each student's unique pathway to success within a caring, connected community - and our teachers and school staff are ready to go! This year we're also excited to launch our new logo. As part of its overall branding and communications efforts, District 63 has rolled out a new graphic identity for all of its schools - and the District itself. You can see our new District logo here; it's part of a common "family" of logos that highlights each school while clearly identifying them as part of our diverse D63 community! Visit our school pages (click the "Select a School" drop down box at the top of the page) to check out all the new logos.
