Superintendent's Message


    Jean Stachowiak






    It is hard to believe that summer is nearly over, and school is about to begin. It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to North Palos School District 117.

    Everyone here in our district works hard each day to ensure our students are safe and are learning at their full potential. We care about the whole child. We challenge them to learn at high levels, but we also challenge them to be socially responsible and to be good and caring members of their communities.

    I hope you had a relaxing summer and had a chance to spend time with family and friends. But, I also hope your child is excited about the new school year starting and the amazing new friends and classmates they will meet.

    To the parents of students who will be attending Conrady this year, it is my extreme pleasure to welcome you to a totally revamped school. We hope you and your children are as excited about the changes to the school as we are.

    Again, welcome to our new families, and welcome back to those who are returning.  The NPD117 team welcomes and encourages families to provide feedback.  Please do not hesitate to contact any of us during the school year with any questions or suggestions you may have.


    Yours in Education,


    Jeannie Stachowiak, Ed.D

    Superintendent of Schools
