The students and staff are celebrating Women’s History Month during March.  Resources and announcements are being pushed out to students weekly to remind us of the great accomplishments of women all over the world.  This week, we have pushed out the website www.womenshistorymonth.gov to provide resources that highlight some of these accomplishments.

Lastly, Do you have children at home between the ages of 2 and 4 who do not go to the Mannheim Early Childhood Center?  Mannheim Early Childhood Center is holding Virtual Preschool screenings for March and April. Please contact the MECC office at 847-455-3611 to get on the screening list.  Please note: a screening must take place to see if your child qualifies for the Pre-K program. Mannheim Early Childhood Center is filling up spots for the remainder of this year and registering students for the 21-22 school year now.
