    Your child has been recently enrolled into our Pre-Kindergarten program. We have an outstanding Pre-K program here in North Palos School District 117.  Both Sorrick School and Dorn School recently received the GOLD Pre-K Circle of Quality Award from the Illinois State Board of Education.  I assure you that your child is in the right place for learning!

    Our Pre-Kindergarten Program receives a grant each year from the state of Illinois.  Our program follows certain criteria to in order to receive funding for the program each year.  One criteria in particular is Family Involvement. Therefore, to maintain enrollment in our program, you are required to participate ONCE a month!  One of my jobs is to provide you with many opportunities to fulfill your monthly obligation.  We have some wonderful and fun events for you to participate in!
