Proof of Residency Process

In an effort to ensure that we are serving our community, the district is requiring all families to provide proof of residency this summer. Parents and guardians may provide proof of residency on either July 31st or August 1st at Reed School during the following hours:

                              Monday, July 31                                Tuesday, August 1
                              9:00 am - 6:30 pm                               7:00 am - 2:00 pm

Families who are unable to attend the sessions on either of the two scheduled days must call the office of any one of the schools to schedule an appointment to prove residency. Families with students entering kindergarten who participated in the residency verification process at Walsh this spring are exempt from the summer process. The Proof of Residency Form and Third Party Affidavit are available under Registration Forms on the district web page.

Oak Prairie Choir In the News

The Oak Prairie Eighth Grade and Hi-C Choirs participated at the Illinois Grade School Music Association (IGSMA) State Level Festival on Saturday, April 29, 2017 and had outstanding performances. Back in March, both ensembles participated at the District Level and earned Division 1 Ratings, which enabled them to advance to the State Level. At State, choirs are rated in seven categories either a 1, 2 or 3, with a 1 being the best. A total of 7-10 points is a Superior and 11-21 is Excellent. There are 3 adjudicators who each give a score, and then one provides a clinic with the group.

Oak Prairie’s Eighth Grade Choir received one 7 and two 10 scores, resulting in a Superior Rating. Hi-C Choir received a perfect score of three 7's, earning them a Superior with High Honors distinction, the only choir at our site to do so and one of only two awarded this year in the entire state of Illinois. The Oak Prairie Choirs are directed by Ms. Carolyn Dobrinich and accompanied by Ms. Kiyona Ohshika.

Oak Prairie IESA Scholar Attitude Award

Oak Prairie School has Six Apply for the IESA Scholar Attitude Award

Oak Prairie School recently had six students apply for the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Scholar Attitude Award.  These six students – Caesar Plaszewski, Frank Biamonte, Jr., Marisa Brown, Zoe Kladis, Tim Nielsen, and Xenia Sinclair - had to meet and exceed the following requirements to apply: be of eighth grade status, have a minimum 3.5 grade-point-average (on a 4.0 scale), and participation in at least one IESA activity during each of his or her junior high years and demonstration of outstanding citizenship during their tenure. In addition, each student is required to submit a typed essay titled "The Value of Sportsmanship."

"The IESA Scholar Attitude Award recognizes the academic success, activity participation, and community involvement of the students in our member schools. The students who are honored as the IESA Scholar Attitude Award winners are among the best and brightest in Illinois. They are the young leaders in their school and community who dream to do great things as junior high school students and become the leaders in their high school years and beyond," said IESA Executive Director Steve Endsley. "Truly, every student who applies for the award is a winner and is an outstanding candidate. Unfortunately, only one student from each membership division will be chosen and recognized. In many cases, it is an honor to be the school's nominee."

Begun in 1999, the IESA Scholar Attitude Award currently honors 15 outstanding eighth grade students, one from each of the 15 IESA geographic Board of Directors divisions.  The IESA Scholar Attitude Award has honored 364 students – three of which hailed from Oak Prairie School – from 205 different schools throughout Illinois since the program was first started. One student from each school who is considered exemplary is eligible to be chosen.  The 2017 Scholar Attitude Award luncheon will be Tuesday, May 2 at the DoubleTree Hotel, Bloomington.

The Illinois Elementary School Association is a not-for-profit organization of 844 public and private grade, middle and junior high schools. The IESA is the nation's only organization of its kind for students in grades five-eight.

Will County School District 92 Mission, Core Values and Goals

As the culmination of a planning process that began in August of 2016, the Board of Education adopted Will County School District 92 Goals at its January of 2017 meeting. These goals will become the foundation of district and school improvement efforts in the coming years. The goals are a product of work by a committee made up of representatives of the Board, community, faculty, staff and administration that began their efforts this summer. During these sessions, which were facilitated by representatives of the Illinois Association of School Boards, the committee discussed the mission and core values of the district in anticipation of setting goals for the future. At previous meetings, the District 92 Board of Education took action to affirm its Mission Statement and adopted core goals and beliefs. In the coming months and years, we look forward to sharing with you the progress of the district toward these goals that are aimed at supporting the mission of Will County School District 92. We are proud that District 92 remains a community partnership dedicated to children.
