Dear 157-C Families,

With District 157-C's participation in the Frankfort Fall Fest Parade, our back-to-school events a big success and a State championship by our Hickory Creek Girls' Softball Team, we have had a great start to the new school year! Thank you to all of our families and staff for your support.

We truly appreciate our amazing volunteers who provide so much for our students. At the September 16 Board of Education meeting, the Board graciously accepted gifts and contributions in the amount of $154,270.40 for the period of September 2014 through June 2015. These funds were raised to enhance education by the Frankfort Athletic Boosters, Band Boosters, Chorus Boosters, the Frankfort Education Foundation and the Frankfort Family School Partnership. These organizations, along with their volunteers and supporters, are making such a positive difference for the children!

Just a reminder that Terra Nova testing takes place for grades 2-7 this week and continues through October 8. These tests are used to help define educational needs, improve student learning and help plan for the future. The assessment results are analyzed by our administrators and teachers to help reach our district goals for continued student improvement.

To make sure you don't miss any important events at our schools, please visit the new electronic calendar on our website at There is a tab for the district calendar and a tab for each school's calendar. These calendars include important dates such as early dismissal, parent and teacher conferences, testing, hot lunch, field trips, Booster, FSP, Foundation events, etc., and are updated as changes occur. The events in each calendar can be added to your personal calendars in several different formats. You will have the ability to download all items via iCal or individual items using the html versions. For those who prefer a paper calendar, there is also a downloadable version of the complete district calendar in a month-by-month format that can be printed.

We hope that you are enjoying the wonderful fall weather and the beautiful autumn colors. I look forward to seeing you at our many school programs and events. As always, thank you for your partnership with us on behalf of our students.


Dr. Maura Zinni
District 157-C Superintendent of Schools
