Dear 157-C Families,

These last few weeks of school have really flown by. The students were excited to participate in a number of special events as we came to the end of a very positive school year. Some of these events included Grand Prairie’s First Grade “Dining with Dad” and Field Days, Chelsea’s fifth grade Colonial Market and Field Days, and Hickory Creek’s Spring Musical “The Music Man” and Graduation, just to name a few. In addition, our Tiger Band will again perform as part of the Village of Frankfort’s annual Memorial Day ceremony. Our band students provide the perfect touch to this observance that salutes our country’s freedom while honoring the fallen heroes of the Armed Services.

Just a reminder to save the date of Monday, July 11, for our Education Foundation’s Fourth Annual Golf Outing. It will be held at Prestwick Country Club in Frankfort with a 10:30 a.m. registration and 12:00 noon Shotgun Start (4-Player Scramble.) The $155 registration fee includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, a forecaddie per foursome, box lunch and dinner. All proceeds will benefit 157-C students through classroom grants. Sponsor opportunities are also available. For information contact Jen Dore, or 815-557-1909. This organization does so much to enhance education for our students and your strong parent participation is an integral part of what makes our district so successful.

Once again we ask you to please help us pass the word about kindergarten and new student registration to any parents you know who will have kindergarten age children or new students to our district who do not receive the schools’ newsletters. Children who will be five years of age on or before September 1, 2016 are eligible for entry into kindergarten in the fall. Registration will be held by appointment only at the District 157-C Administrative Office, 10482 West Nebraska in Frankfort. Appointments should be made by calling 815-469-5922. More information is with the District Office and on our website,

We wish all of our 157-C families a wonderful summer! The District Administrative Office will be open during its regular summer hours. Over the next few months, we hope you will stay connected with us by watching for the District’s summer newsletter and checking our website.


Dr. Maura Zinni
