Dear Friend of CCSD93,
Celebrating Superhero Students with the Carol Stream Police Department!
Student and staff safety and security is CCSD93's highest priority. We've long valued our partnerships with our community police departments as a key components to maintaining the safest possible learning environments. 

Today, I had the pleasure of joining members of the Carol Stream Police Department to give away uniquely designed and packaged Shoes for SuperHeroes to 38 specially chosen superhero students at Cloverdale and Western Trails elementary schools! The shoes, which were made available thanks to the Unity Partnership and the shoe brand Super Heroic, came in superhero themed canisters complete with a cape string backpack. 
CCSD93 Resource Officer Castro, of the Carol Stream Police Department, spoke with students from both schools about how they're superheroes for making positive choices every day, and how they can rely on our community's police officers to help them continue to be superheroes. It was a terrific way to build positive relationships between students and our police officers. In the coming weeks, we'll continue to collaborate with the Carol Stream Police Department to give away shoes to even more superhero students at the rest of our elementary schools. I'm so grateful to be a part of a community that is so supportive and caring of its children. 

Here are a few pictures from today, and you can view the video linked below for even more on the events!
