A Message from Your Superintendent

May 25, 2018

Summer is almost here – just one more day of school after the Memorial Day weekend! Before we close out another successful year, I want to thank you for partnering with the schools in your child’s education. We appreciate the vital role that parents play. Thank you also to all the volunteers who help make our schools such special places of learning and fun. As I saw Fairview kids enjoying Field Day outside of our offices this week, I was reminded once again that we’re fortunate that so many people pitch in to help whenever needed.

The School Board recently swore in Joe Sonnefeldt for another term as president. Eileen Kowalczyk was sworn in as vice president, replacing Jennifer Kobus, who remains on the Board. Please join me in thanking our Board members for the many hours they volunteer to guiding our District and making difficult decisions that are in the best interests of students, staff and the entire community. This was a particularly challenging year, as the Board decided to place a tax referendum on the ballot to maintain current staffing and programming and address crucial maintenance issues. They have provided important leadership on these complex financial issues. As you know, the referendum was successful. Thanks to all of you who got involved in the process and supported our schools.

To learn more about the District’s plans now that we will soon receive funding from the referendum, please read our spring/summer newsletter at this link. It’s a quick read and includes important news from the District and all four schools. Please help spread the word by sending it to your friends and neighbors who do not have kids in the schools. You can easily share it from our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Next Wednesday, the School Board will host a breakfast honoring District 57 staff who are retiring or celebrating service anniversaries. See the list of honorees below and join me in congratulating them for their many contributions to District 57 through the years.

We look forward to seeing students on Aug. 14, when the 2018-2019 school year gets underway. In the meantime, have a wonderful summer!

Dr. Elaine Aumiller
