It is with a great deal of pride and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year!
For parents/guardians whose children are entering our schools for the first time, a special welcome and a heartfelt thank you for the trust you have placed in us. For parents/guardians of returning students, please know that the same care and commitment we have shown to your children will continue as we move forward in what we truly believe will be another amazing and successful school year.
For generations, North Palos District 117 schools have served as the educational home to students across our community, as well as a critical part of what makes our cities and villages such a great place to live.
As superintendent, I am thrilled to be part of a district where traditions are held in such high regard, and where keeping current with best teaching and learning practices is valued. All of this ensures that every student receives the resources necessary to be successful as a lifelong learner.
I look forward to another exciting year of outstanding achievement and growth!
Yours in education,
Jeannie Stachowiak, Ed. D.
