Dot Day
We are excited that District 54 will celebrate our first ever International Dot Day on Wednesday, September 16th.  This day began from the book The Dot by well-known author Peter H. Reynolds.  His book, The Dot, celebrates creativity, collaboration and bravery and encourages us to “Make our Mark” no matter how small we start!  Although this is a student non-attendance day, activities and ideas will be shared across all grade levels and all buildings district wide. Our school will also have a padlet where students can share a picture, post or video of their creation or act.  You’ll be able to access the interactive link for activities next Wednesday, September 16th. We hope you’ll join us and share how YOU decide to make YOUR mark and share YOUR creativity!  We can’t wait to see where these ideas take YOU!

District 54 Virtual Run to Read Weekend: Sept. 25-27
The year 2020 has proven to be quite an unpredictable year for all of us. For the past 16 years, the District 54 Run to Read has been a race dedicated to promoting health and wellness for all ages. With that in mind, our 17th annual Run to Read is going virtual. Run or walk anytime from Sept. 25-27 and make sure to share your photos with us by using the hashtag #54Run2Read.

All money raised this year will be donated to the D54 Foundation Crisis Fund, to provide food and other necessary supplies to District 54 families who are struggling financially during this pandemic.

As in years past, you can choose from a variety of distances. Pick the distance that works for you and map out a route near your home. If walking is more your style, pick a distance and walk it instead. You can also sponsor a student so they can participate free of charge.

Every registrant will receive a Tshirt and a medal. To receive the Tshirt before the event, please make sure to register by Sept. 8, 2020. Any orders received after Sept. 8 will be delivered to participants as soon as possible. Tshirts and medals will be shipped to your home.
