Dear 157-C Families,

With great excitement I welcome you back for the 2015-2016 school year. For parents/guardians whose students are entering our schools for the first time, we look forward to you being a part of our Frankfort 157-C family. You have joined a school district that is known for its incredible teachers and staff who are truly committed to educational excellence.

As superintendent, I am thrilled to be part of a school district and community that so eagerly supports the district’s mission and endeavors. I hope, as parents you will continue to support the schools and our employees. Your donations of time, talent and monetary gifts greatly impact our students’ experiences. We need you as partners to continue to offer an educational program that will prepare our students for lifelong success. Please communicate regularly with your child’s teachers, join us at school functions, consider being a member of our parent organizations and support our students by showing them that school is a priority.

Once again, each school will be hosting a ‘Meet and Greet’ on Tuesday, August 18. This is the perfect opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, drop off school supplies and become familiar with the various rooms and gathering places in our schools. The first full day of school is Wednesday, August 19 for our K-8 students. Our youngest learners in the Project Begin Program will begin school on Thursday, August 20.

Throughout this year the Frankfort 157-C staff and I will strive to communicate often through newsletters, email messages, teacher webpages and our district webpage. Additionally, we have replaced the district paper calendar with an online version that is updated regularly. Please check out the district and/or school webpage to view the calendar and sync it to your electronic calendar.

I look forward to working collaboratively with you to achieve a goal that is more important than anything we could ever do separately – to prepare our children for a promising future. Please stop by for a visit – my door is always open.


Dr. Maura Zinni
District 157-C Superintendent of Schools
