In alignment with International Women’s Day, District 300 invites families to participate in our Choose to Challenge activity. As part of this challenge, families are encouraged to take a selfie with a challenge card and post to social media using the hashtag #D300ChooseToChallenge. Sample cards can be accessed by clicking here. In addition, classrooms throughout the district will provide students with informative and engaging activities during the month.

District 300 looks forward to celebrating Women’s History Month with our community.
