Engineering Modules Added to D102's Science Curriculum
Beginning this year, D102 will expand upon Next Generation Science Standards for Engineering through the introduction of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Launch units in third and fourth grade and Gateway Engineering and Biomedical curriculum in grades five through eight. Project Lead The Way provides a comprehensive approach to STEM education.


Bilingual Parents Gain Clarity in Navigating D102
On August 12, D102 leaders and parents met with bilingual families new to District 102 schools. The parents learned about school events, extracurricular activities, school and community resources, and D102's English Learners (EL) program. Students who speak English as a second language participate in a regular classroom with additional EL instruction


Staff Inspired during Summer 'Learning on Fire' Institute
Imagine being engaged in the very method of instruction you have set out to study! In July, D102's staff had the opportunity to do just that during a three-day Project Based Learning (PBL) workshop called Learning on Fire Institute (LoFI). Teachers from all four schools pursued a deeper understanding of how to engage the whole child through the development and implementation of PBL. Teachers came with ideas and left with fully-developed PBL projects for their classrooms.


Student Drop-off Times
Pritchett and Tripp student drop-off begins at 8:50am
D102 has streamlined student drop-off. Staff supervision for drop-off begins at 8:50am at Pritchett and Tripp Schools. Please be sure that a school official/adult is present when your child exits the vehicle. Students will go directly into the school to prep for class rather than remain outside.


Summer Projects and Technology Updates
The Board of Education expressed sincere appreciation to the D102 staff for all their hard work this year. The summer months at D102 are extremely busy with maintenance and improvements to facilities and equipment in preparation for the upcoming school year.


Annual Update: D102 Guided by Its Learning Vision
District 102 is governed by a strong and supportive Board of Education. Our district is recognized for its innovative learning environments and bold approaches that embed content into authentic and personalized experiences serving the needs of the whole child. Students are engaged in purposeful activities, utilize a vast array of resources, and produce products for authentic audiences and applications. (2015 Annual Review)


Dr. Dunkin Gains First-Hand Global Perspective
Dr. Theresa Dunkin has been working with EDLeader21, a national network of school and district leaders focused on integrating the four C's: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity into education through the curriculum and learning environment. This summer, she attended an educational summit in Helsinki, Finland, and Davos, Switzerland to learn about the two school systems. Related story in B.G. Journal 7/23/15.
