If you haven't noticed, we've certainly been busy throughout Palos 118!
In just the past few weeks, we've held parent teacher conferences, discussed ways to improve our schools at our Fall Board Retreat, saluted our veterans at South's Annual Veterans Day Ceremony, and successfully hosted our first ever district-wide BooBash. We've also been celebrating American Education Week - a week in which we take time to celebrate public education and the public educators responsible for our student success.
So as the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches, I reflect on all the wonderful programming we're able to offer our students and families and I'm grateful that as a school district we have the resources, the community support and outstanding support organizations to do so. I'm also thankful for our dedicated staff, child focused school board, and engaged parents, without whom we would not be able to accomplish so much.
I wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving, and look forward to seeing you at the many holiday events and festivities in the upcoming weeks.
Anthony M. Scarsella,
Superintendent of Schools
