Last month, I invited families and community members to breakfast to talk about full-day kindergarten and the construction tied to it. Here is a summary of the information presented at the breakfast.

All four of our elementary schools will have additional space constructed. The projects at Fulton and Memorial are smaller and will go to bid in March. The projects at Kruse and Fierke are scheduled go to bid in April or May.

Space being added to each building to accommodate full-day kindergarten includes:

  • Fulton: Two kindergarten classrooms with restrooms, a music room with storage, and outdoor storage for playground materials. 
  • Memorial: A new kitchen and cafeteria, additional resource space, and a PE office. 
  • Kruse: Four kindergarten classrooms with restrooms, a kitchen and cafeteria, and additional resource space. 
  • Fierke: Three kindergarten classrooms with restrooms, a kitchen and cafeteria, and additional resource space. 

Construction will be complete for the 2019-2020 school year. The District has been working on plans to temporarily house the full-day kindergarten program for the 2018-2019 school year

The District appreciates the support and encouragement of our families as we build a brighter future for our students. Please feel free to contact me at superintendent@district146.org with any questions or concerns.

District 146 schools will be in session for the Veterans Day holiday. We schedule classes on this day to offer our students an opportunity to learn about and contemplate the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom. 

Some of our schools hold ceremonies to give students the opportunity to show their gratitude to local veterans through song, video, and small tokens of appreciation. In many instances, students also have the opportunity to visit with our local veterans following the ceremony, getting to know more closely those who have fought for us. 



Some of our schools will also be raising money for organizations benefiting veterans and creating thank you cards to be delivered to veterans’ homes. All of our schools, however, will reflect on the importance and meaning of the holiday.

The lessons our students learn during our Veterans Day activities will last a lifetime. District 146 looks forward to honoring our veterans for the sacrifices they have made.
