I want to thank everyone for your support of the band activities and your flexibility with band student schedules this year. I also want to thank everyone who helped us with our band raffle fundraiser. Between your support, flexibility and our students' hard work we had a very successful year. We demonstrated our success this past Saturday at Tinley park HS at the IHSA Organizational Competition.

Parent University Second Annual Event a Great Success
Parent University Second Annual Event a Great Success
On behalf of Parent University Planning Committee,

We want to thank you for making our 2nd annual Parent University a success. The day ran smoothly, parents seemed to really enjoy themselves based on responses from, speakers, vendors, community partners, and parents. Parent University is a District event, it allows parents a valuable opportunity to engage and connect with other parents, community partners and staff while having access to numerous resources from the local community free of charge. We offered free classes for parents, that were aimed at meeting the needs of our families at District 206. This couldn't have been possible without the assistance of countless people who helped prepare ahead of time, work during the event itself and clean up afterwards.

Overall the day was a success, it was a community effort for sure from beginning to end.

Many of thanks to the following people & clubs:

Valerie Acosta
Marilyn Bittner
Sheva Franklin
Patty Martinez
Brenda Macon
Nathan Schmidt
Katherine Steward
Tony Townes
