Principal’s Message 05-17-21 

Thank you for supporting our Educators!

A big shout out and “Thank You” to our community for showing their support of teachers during the recent Teacher Appreciation Week.  Your acknowledgement of the work that the school staff does is much appreciated.

First ever “Spring Fling” a big success!

The Seventh grade Band performed in the first ever, district-level, “Spring Fling” concert under a beautiful blue sky on Rocket Hill.  The concert was a great success and special recognition goes out to PKMS Band Directors Brittany Rennels and Kevin Fredrick, along with event coordination from CHS Director Jim Struyk and District Athletic Director Steve Diversey.  As always, our District 301 Music Boosters lent their support to this event.  It was a great show of our music community and was a wonderful opportunity for our band students to perform together.  Way to go Falcons!

News from the PKMS Library.

Please return your ELA books as soon as possible.  6th grade students need to return their novels and 7th grade students need to return their biographies and Getting Away with Murder. All library books need to be turned in by Friday, May 28th. Please check your backpacks and at home and get all your books returned by May 28th.

Only 3 weeks to go, Falcons!

With only three full weeks left in this school year, I want to challenge and encourage all of our students to “keep their foot on the gas” as we finish out the year.  You have shown great courage, flexibility, and resiliency this past year and now is no time to slow the pace.  Remember to track your assignments, complete and submit them in a timely manner, and ask your teachers for help when you need it.  If you are missing assignments, be sure to get these made up as they are the preparation that you need for your quizzes and tests.  Truly doing your best shows the best of you!  Finish strong, Falcons!

Free Library access for District #301 families.

301 Families ~ take a look at this great opportunity that might help your family gain free library access.  If you don’t currently belong to a library district, your family might qualify for a free public library card.  Please check out this informational flyer from Elburn’s Town & Country website. 

Annual Residency verification.

If you have a student in grades EC -12th grade in Central 301, and you own and reside at your home, you do not have to complete residency paperwork annually.  However, if you have moved within the past year, you will need to complete a new residency verification form and provide required documentation.  Also, if you rent your home, or are hosted by another family in the district, you are required to complete residency paperwork on a yearly basis.  Residency verification for the 2021 – 2022 school year begins May 1st and is due August 1st.
