From our Veterans Day celebrations, a districtwide food drive, parent engagement meetings, a listening session with Congressman Phillips, lunch buddies at Armstrong and Cooper, breakfast with Seven Dreams Education Foundation past and present board members -- we celebrate our community!

Celebrating Co-Curriculars
District 281 offers many clubs, activities and athletics opportunities for students. We celebrate the good news in volleyball, swimming, debate, football, cross country, adapted sports and more!

Celebrating Arts
As an arts district, our students participate in band, orchestra, choir, theater, visual arts and more! Our Fall Music Festival at Orchestra Hall on Monday, November 4, featured several hundred students! The Cooper Marching Hawks indoor concert featured 'boy band' music. Northport Elementary is participating in a traveling mural with nine other schools throughout the US and Canada.

Celebrating Academics
Congratulations to our new inductees in the National Honor Society; our many students of the month; and our excellent educators who plan creative, innovate lessons for our children! We celebrate you!
