Superintendent's Winter Break Message
Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org on 12/21/18
Dear District 204 Community,
It’s hard to believe that winter break is almost here. I hope you enjoy the upcoming time with your family. Many of our families find this time of year stressful, especially our homeless families. Each year, we try to alleviate some of that stress by finding ways to support families that might be facing hardships. This year, we had concern that it might be challenging to find support for our increasing number of homeless families.
We put a call out to our community to adopt a family or provide any level of support they could, and we were overwhelmed with the response. Community partners and individuals stepped up and provided support so that each of our 122 families with a total of 220 children will be supported this holiday season.
I want to express my sincere gratitude to Samaritan Network, Neuqua Valley Student Council, Indian Prairie Parents Council, Indian Prairie Educational Foundation, many of our PTAs, and many more individuals for their contributions. Your overwhelming generosity made this holiday season brighter for our families that need it the most.
Our community has a long history of supporting those less fortunate. The Indian Prairie Parents Council has organized a winter coat drive for the past 13 years. It is through their work that a warm coat — a necessity often taken for granted — is provided for students in need. Please take a moment to watch this video to see how a dedicated parent group organizes this annual program.
I hope you have a wonderful break. We look forward to seeing our students on January 8.
