The 2018-2019 Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SSAC) has been busy this school year. The council consists of 15 students who represent our high schools in RPS 205. The students have been working on several initiatives to increase community service among their peers. The council decided that they wanted to bring a smile to senior citizens by making birthday cards. They reached out to Welsh Elementary School, and the Welsh students made the birthday cards. The SSAC delivered 150 homemade birthday cards to Alden Park Strathmoor Rehabilitation and Health Care. They visited residents with March birthdays and presented them with the card.
SSAC student Madie Miller said, "residents had a big smile on their face and loved it. So that made me happy. We want to go back in April to hand out birthday cards again."
The extra cards will be left at the facility to make sure that birthday cards are distributed each month to seniors. This is a great way to celebrate some of our community's senior citizens and give students the opportunity to lead and collaborate.
Rockford School Board member Jaime Escobedo submitted his resignation from the board effective Wednesday, May 29.
All RPS 205 elementary and middle school students will follow a shortened schedule on Monday, June 3.
Ethan Strombeck will receive a $2,500 scholarship.
The elementary schools will close after this school year.
