Dr. WagnerPreschool - Kindergarten Center and School Start Times Update

Montessori will be staying at our Park View site through June, 2020. Because of this, we will wait to open Park View as a Preschool and Kindergarten center until fall of 2021.  This also means we will not change the school day start/end times for 2020. We will keep the community updated through our website and school newsletters as we have more information.

One of our Strategic District Initiatives is Improving Communication!
Please help us by following us on social media or joining us at one of our community board meetings.

We want your input! Come to our December 10 (NEW DATE) Community  Meeting!
Last spring, our Board of Education set a goal to provide more opportunities for our community to share their thoughts and ideas with the Board in person. They scheduled three meetings, October 1st at Indian Grove, December 10th at RTMS and a date to come in March of 2020 at Euclid. We encourage everyone to come. The December meeting is scheduled for 7-8:30 PM in the River Trails Middle School Library.

RTMS is located at 1000 North Wolf Road. . If you have a topic of interest to discuss, please email 
Some questions arose from the October 1 meeting and we have developed a FAQ document from this meeting.  

Hope to see you on social media and at our December 10 meeting!

Adopt A Classroom Burlington
Burlington and Adopt a classroom are working together on this project.
A new Burlington store is opening up in Mount Prospect and they recognize a school district within close proximity of the store with a $10,000 donation. Their donation of 2 - $5.000 checks was presented October 17, 2019 to at a ceremony at Euclid School and Indian Grove School. The donation for District 26 will assist to build up our classroom libraries as we move toward a reading workshop model of instruction. This will make such a great impact on what we are able to do in ALL of our elementary classrooms.
