One District, One Book


This spring District 161 schools are celebrating community literacy by participating in the One District, One Book initiative. Elementary schools will be reading A Cricket in Times Square by George Selden and Parker Junior High will be reading Because of Mr. Terrupt by Rob Boyea. All families and staff members are encouraged to participate and will each receive a copy of the text. In addition, students will record their minutes read to contribute to a shared goal of reading one million pages for the May Million Challenge. The goal is to encourage a life-long love of reading and a strong sense of community. Extra copies of both titles will be available at the Flossmoor Public Library for anyone that would like to join in the initiatives. Happy reading!  

Physical Exam Due August 2, 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian of a 5th Grade Student:

All students entering 6th grade are required to present a new physical examination and dental examination. Immunization requirements for children entering 6th grade include proof of the Tdap vaccine, a second dose of varicella, one dose of Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccination (MCV4), and completion of the Hepatitis B series. This is in addition to the immunization requirements met at the previous grades.

Physicals are due by August 2, 2019.

The dental examination form is due May 15, 2020.

Please use the required forms below and make a copy for your records before submitting the originals.

I urge you to make your appointments now, as many offices have less availability at the end of summer. If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Knawa at (708) 647-7009.
