Dear District 153 Family,
Where did the first trimester go? Seems like yesterday was the first day of school!
At the start of a new school year, teachers often ask their new class to write about what they wish their teachers knew about them as a "get acquainted" exercise. This past week, District 153 celebrated American Education Week by shining a well-deserved spotlight on our incredible educators. We turned that "first day of school" question around on six of our staff members and recorded their answers. If you haven't had a chance to see our video series on Facebook, I encourage you to click the link below and watch them. They are a wonderful illustration of why District 153 educators are so special.
Finally, I just want to remind our parents and guardians that school is not in session next week for parent-teacher conferences and the Thanksgiving holiday. We look forward to seeing all our parents and guardians next week at parent-teacher conferences. Educating kids is a team sport, so these team huddles are really important!
On behalf of all of us at District 153, I want to wish our extended District 153 family a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We remain profoundly grateful for this community and its support of our students and schools.
Dr. Dale Mitchell
