The latest Downtown Leadership Club meeting on March 18 focused on one of the district's values – character. RPS 205 employees from the Administration Building, Operations Support Center and Sterling Holley heard a candid and personal message from Jefferson High School alum and State Representative Maurice West on how he built character.
The meeting closed with acknowledging the hard work of some employees who live the district values. They were recognized with a shoutout from their peers and received a candy bar for living one or more of our organizational values: character, collaboration, communication and continuous improvement:
-Paula Crossno-Mellissa Douglas-Daniel Holder-Sara Kurpius-Mitchell Luebke-Janice O'Brien-Ellen Schubert-Yashekia Simpkins-Susan Uram
This month's shoutouts had a special touch. Joyann Kirschbaum, Executive Director of Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Program Schools, asked principals to give kudos to their peers who attend the leadership meetings:
-Ellis Elementary School Principal Taren Turner nominated Cynthia Hodges, Mat Parker and Susan Uram-Kishwaukee Elementary School Principal Aimee Kasper recognized Dave Dienberg and Scott Remer-McIntosh Elementary Principal Al Gagliano nominated Amy Czlapinski and Michele Sather-Nashold Early Childhood Center Principal Erin Salberg shouted out Mitchell Luebke-Thurgood Marshall Elementary Principal Jessica Powell gave a shoutout to Dave Dienberg and Scott Remer
Students who are new to RPS 205 must first enroll in the district.
The state released formal guidelines on Tuesday about what in-person learning will look like this fall.
This message might not surprise you, but we wanted to share our disappointment with our students and graduates.
RPS 205 teachers and students will comply with all Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines.
Please enroll for the 2020-21 school year before July 10.
