Dr. Donald Barnes Re-Dedication Ceremony

Shortly after the first of the year, we anticipate welcoming the capstone piece to our recent building addition and renovation project, as the new Administration Center at McClure Junior High is named for long-time Western Springs resident and retired District 101 Superintendent Dr. Donald E. Barnes.

Dr. Barnes spent thirty-five years in District 101 as a teacher, principal, and superintendent – a position he held for nearly twenty years before his retirement in 1994. The District’s Administrative Offices, formerly located on the south end of Field Park School, were named “The Donald E. Barnes Administrative Offices” by the Board of Education in 1995.

We are pleased to reaffirm Dr. Barnes’ significant place in the history of our District as we carry on the dedication of our new offices as the Donald E. Barnes Administration Center at a ceremony to take place on Wednesday, January 21. The cermony will start at 9:45 am and will be followed immediately by a reception in the McClure Library.


The Board of Education would like to invite current and former District 101 students, staff, Board members, and community to attend the ceremony!
