We are proud to announce that February’s Jump Rope for Heart event raised $1551.58 for the American Heart Association. This was a wonderful event because our students took an interest in two things: heart health and helping others. Thank you to all the families, relatives, and friends who supported our students in their fund-raising efforts. Remember to keep your heart healthy by following the “Five for Life”: Limit sodium consumption, avoid sugary drinks, don’t smoke, eat a nutritious diet, and exercise at least 60 minutes per day.

We are thrilled to be supporting the American Heart Association to help teach our students and families how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope For Heart program. Jump Rope For Heart at Nathan Hale will take place the week of February 2-6, during your child’s physical education class. Donation envelopes are due Friday, February 6, 2015 (donations are optional). We hope you are as excited as we are to support our students in this important experience. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Additionally, District 54 is participating in National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 6. We are asking all students and staff to wear red shirts that day to bring awareness to the nation’s #1 cause of death: Heart Disease.

Good evening. All District 54 schools will be closed on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, due to the weather. All after-school and evening activities are canceled as well.
The Rafferty Administration Center will be open, but RAC employees can report to work at 9 a.m.
The decision to close school is not one we make lightly. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 14,000 students we serve can get to school safely (whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car).
District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control (such as today’s blizzard) sometimes dictate that we close. Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.
