First Day of School 

It was a great first day! Here are some snapshots of students as they returned to school.


New Classroom Ribbon Cuttings at Churchill and Forest Glen

All are invited to attend ribbon cutting ceremonies, presented by the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce, to celebrate the four new classrooms at both Churchill and Forest Glen on Saturday, October 3, 2015. The four classrooms at each school were built to replace remaining portable classrooms. Four more classrooms are being built at Churchill School to replace the final portables at the district's elementary schools. At this time next year, all portables at the elementary schools will be gone and replaced by new classrooms. The final four classrooms will open Summer 2016.
