District 300 remains committed to engage all families in the pursuit of our central mission: to ensure all students are college and career ready upon graduation. As such, we are pleased to introduce the Math Information Video Series, providing parents with an overview of the concepts and strategies students learn in the classroom.

The Math Information Video Series covers kindergarten through eighth grade and features a District 300 teacher from each grade level reviewing the essential benchmarks of each math unit.

Each District 300 school will participate in a districtwide Walk-a-Thon (held at each respective school) where students can raise donations for each completed lap.
