District Read-A-Thon Fundraiser

This year, we are excited to announce that we will hold a District-wide Read-a-thon fundraiser. Our Read-a-thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills. The main focus of the Read-a-thon is to provide our students the opportunity to “LEARN to EARN” to help families of BSD111 students that are in need of assistance during these difficult times. To that end, the Read-a-thon promises to be a fun, exciting journey for all participants as they begin a personal Reading Adventure!.  Our Read-a-thon will start April 15 and end on April 30.  Click the links for more informationthe activity calendar, and prizes!  We hope EVERYONE participates!

The State is approved to provide new Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) benefits to all eligible Illinois students. Eligible families do not need to complete a P-EBT application. However, families are encouraged to complete a Free and Reduced Price Meal Application if they have not already done so.

Message from the Superintendent

It’s hard to believe it’s already April.  The school year is moving along quickly and we’re thinking ahead to next year.  We know many of our families are curious about what school will be like for the 2021-22 school year.  The board of education and administration understand that in-person instruction is best.  This fall, we are planning to return to traditional in-person instruction, five days a week, for full days.  We also plan to have the PASS Program open for after-school care to assist our working parents/guardians.
