An annual book drive that benefits a different D300 elementary school each year will focus on boosting the Meadowdale Elementary School Library this month, as follows:

Who:  Book Drive to benefit Meadowdale Elementary School

What:  New and gently-used elementary school children’s books (kindergarten – 5th grade)           

When:  July 1 to July 31, 2013

Drop Off Locations:

Beginning this school year (2013-2014), all students in Illinois entering or transferring into 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th,11th, or 12th grades will be required to show proof of receipt of one dose of Tdap vaccine (combined tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis), regardless of how recently they last received a DTaP, DT or Td dose.

The District 300 School Board has taken a major step forward to finding a new home for the Oak Ridge program that will be a better fit for Oak Ridge students.

At the June 24, 2013, Board meeting, the Board passed a resolution allowing the district to put the school’s current property, located on Lake Marian Road in Carpentersville, on the market.  The district will accept offers through a competitive public bidding process, which will take place next month (July 2013). 

D300 has an Alumni webpage for sharing and finding information about D300 class reunions.  If you are organizing a reunion or related event this summer, please visit our Alumni webpage and complete the basic informational form today!  We’d love to help you spread the word to your fellow graduates.

The district's annual Stuff the Bus event (also known as Project Backpack) will be held on Saturday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wal-Mart parking lot at 1410 S.

District 300 staff members look forward to serving you during our vacation office hours, which are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday throughout the summer. Our offices are open to the public this Friday, May 31. However, beginning the week of Monday, June 3, D300 schools and offices will be CLOSED on Fridays throughout the summer break. If you visit a school or office outside of these hours, please understand that staff members are working, but the doors will be closed to the public after 3:30 p.m.

A slideshow of graduation photos taken by D300 staff and volunteers will be shared on CUSD300’s YouTube channel the week of May 28, and albums for each school will be posted to the CUSD300 Facebook page.  We are so proud of the Class of 2013 and wish these students every success in their next chapter of life!

Progress was recently made on one legislative concern for District 300, while district staff and families continue to advocate on another.

Superintendent Dr. Michael Bregy sent the following message to District 300 faculty and staff on Monday, May 6:

Community members recently elected by the public to serve on the D300 School Board were sworn into office on April 29. This ceremony was followed by the election of officers, appointment of committee leaders and approval of the 2013-14 Board meeting schedule.
