McClure Named National Blue Ribbon School!
Earlier today, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan's office recognized McClure Junior High School as one of only 304 schools across the country to receive the prestigious 2010 National Blue Ribbon School Award!

The Illinois State Board of Education nominated McClure as one of twenty schools from our State to be considered by the Department of Education for what is considered to be the highest award given to a school for sustained excellence in student performance and/or improvement over time. In receiving this award, it is important to know:
* McClure is one of 304 public/private schools named in 2010, out of 132,000 public/private schools across the U.S.
* 420 schools were nominated by their States for this award. The 304 schools named represents 72.4% of those nominated.
* Illinois had 19 schools recognized for this award; 9 were middle schools.
* There were 84 middle schools recognized from across the country.

Principal Dan Chick and a teacher representative from McClure will be recognized at a ceremony presided by Secretary Duncan in Washington, DC on November 15 and 16.

DISTRICT 101 BOARD OF EDUCATION

FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN

RESOURCES AND RESEARCH REVIEWED

In March, a concerned group of community members approached the Distrrict 101 Board of Education with a presentation and request that consideration be given to bring Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) to our schools. The Board has made FDK discussions a monthly topic amidst our regular work and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

The Board has publicly stated that our current Kindergarten schedule will be utilized for the upcoming 2015-16 school year, but it will continue to consider the request over the next several months. As part of this process, the Board has reviewed a significant amount of research on the impact of FDK and compiled important additional information. Those materials are being shared via the links below so that the District 101 community has access to the same information the Board is reviewing in its consideration and decision-making. These links will also be included in the Important Information (immediate right side of this homepage) section of the D101 website and will continue to be updated as the Board continues its work related to this process.

Additional information that might assist the Board, and/or any comments or questions about this process should be forwarded to Superintendent Brian Barnhart who can be contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or 708.246.3700.

"The WSCAE school districts are proud to offer this showcase of the visual arts created by our incredibly talented students. We have equally strong art teachers, who are eager to come together in recognizing the hard work and creativity of so many young people.
