SD81 Welcomes Spring Events!

April 11, 2014

It has been a very busy first week back in SD81. Students and staff alike returned refreshed and excited to get back into teaching and learning.

 The week ended with the Art Fair/Taste of Kennedy on Thursday evening, the Career Fair at Lincoln Middle School, and the ABC Parent Group’s Ice Cream Sale during lunch times at all three schools.

The Art Fair/Taste of Kennedy is an awesome event that spotlights the fine work our student artists create during art class. An added bonus to the evening is several different food tastings that are donated by parents, the fire department, and every classroom in Kennedy School. I offer my sincere appreciation to everyone who made the evening possible for our families.

The Annual Career Fair was held today at Lincoln Middle School. The students were very engaged as they learned about a wide variety of careers. Some of the guests included an Information Technology Analyst who spoke to our students about video game design, an Opera Singer who brought costumes for the kids to try on, a local Firefighter, an Army Sergeant, and students from Leyden High School who shared what they are learning  in Business Accounting, Automotive Engineering, Culinary Arts, and Consumer Science. This day is always very inspiring for our students and I thank the many professionals who shared their time and talent with our students.

With the arrival of Spring it appears the weather has shifted and I hope everyone has an opportunity to get outside and soak up the sunshine!
