Superintendent's Message

Jean Stachowiak  

To the Members of the NPD117 Learning Community,

As another amazing school year comes to a close, I’d like to take a minute and thank everyone for helping make it memorable. From the students and parents to the teachers and staff, thank you all for your hard work this year.

The school year concluded with 321 eighth-grade students from Conrady Junior High School crossing the stage at Stagg High School to receive their diplomas and begin the next phase of their young lives as high school freshmen.

While summer vacation has just begun, North Palos District 117 is busy looking ahead to the upcoming school year. We are already working hard on key initiatives for next year including innovations in curriculum and technology.  These improvements will create many exciting opportunities for our students when they return in August and in the years to come.

And speaking of technology, our online registration has been a huge success so far this summer with many families taking advantage of the new system. Thank you for helping make the system run more efficiently.

Please enjoy a safe and well-deserved break from the school-year routine and have a fun and relaxing summer vacation.

Yours in Education,

Jeannie Stachowiak, Ed.D.
