Superintendent’s Message, D75
October 2022

We’re just two months into our school year and already we’re seeing signs that this will be a great year. Take a look around and you’ll see those signs.

Crowds of people attended our annual Brat Fest at Carl Sandburg Middle School; McTeacher Night at McDonald’s was overflowing with D75 families; we had good attendance at our Curriculum Night events.

These are just a few examples showing how our District 75 community is investing in our children’s education. When we invest in our kids, they put more time and effort into their own lives.

It’s exciting to see our kids so active in everything from reading to music to sports. They’ve participated in Family Reading Night at Washington School, brought lots of energy to their overnight trip at Camp Duncan and marched in the Mundelein High School Homecoming parade.

The D75 staff is also investing in our students. Our curriculum staff has been busy working with teachers to fine-tune our dynamic Dual Language Program (read the cover story in this newsletter).

We also look for every way to help our students succeed. This year we adjusted the starting times at school to give our older students a later start in the morning at a time when they need more sleep. We’re following that up with a survey to parents to find out how the new schedule is impacting you, your students and your families. Please provide us with your feedback on this important survey.

The community is making a strong effort on behalf of our children as well.

Our PTO has held fundraisers such as McTeacher Night and the Scholastic Book Fair. Our D75 STEAM Foundation is planning its biggest fundraiser of the year, Night at the Races on Nov. 4 (don’t miss it!). And the Mundelein After School Coalition (MASC) is hosting a Halloween Dance at our middle school.

When we make investments like this, our children get more involved and perform better in school. So we encourage you to continue participating in your school community. It’ll make for a great school year.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kevin Myers
Superintendent, District 75
