Art in the Community

Student art work displayed at the Dunkin’ Donuts located at 1301 N Wolf Road, Mt Prospect, IL

One of the goals in the District’s Strategic Plan is to connect more regularly with the surrounding businesses and community groups which are part of River Trails School District.   A Public Relations committee was formed to write action steps to accomplish this goal.

This committee created an action step which includes displaying student art work around the community so that others can view just what our students create within our schools.  The art teachers from Euclid, Indian Grove and River Trails Middle School choose student work based on various factors including creativity, neatness, color and overall appeal. Every two months, three chosen pieces of two-dimensional art will be placed on the wall of a local retailer. The five local retailers where student art work is being displayed are:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts - 1301 North Wolf Road, Mt Prospect
  • Starbucks - 1 West Rand Rad, Mt. Prospect
  • Fresh Thyme - 211 West Rand Rad, Mt. Prospect
  • Menchies - Randhurst Shopping Center, 1027 North Elmhurst Road, Mt Prospect
  • Chick-fil-A – 950 North Elmhurst Road, Mt Prospect

We are hopeful that these artistic displays will enable others to view our student’s talent as well as showcase our schools’ art programs throughout the year.  Students who are selected will receive a letter congratulating them on their achievement and the location where they can find their artwork. 

Thank you for supporting our efforts to connect with retailers surrounding our wonderful school district.
