Dear Antioch School District 34 Family,
 
We are extremely saddened to report that one of our early childhood students, Aliyah Munoz, passed away yesterday unexpectedly.  During this difficult time, we know Aliyah's family will need great support and love from our community.  Funeral arrangements will be shared once they become available.
 
Please keep the Munoz family in your thoughts and prayers.
 
With deep sympathy,
 
Jay Marino, Superintendent


  As always, thank you for supporting our schools!

Math Support for Parents!

Eureka Math, our math tool for grades 2-8 (pilots currently in Kindergarten and 1st 
grade) has launched a new website to  support parents and  students at home. Please 
visit the Great Minds website to access tools  that will support learning at  home.  The resources include homework helpers, grade  roadmaps,  module tip sheets, videos, and frequently  asked questions.  This is a wonderful resource and we are excited  make it available  to our families!

Mark your Calendars for Antioch D34 Parent Universities!
