ALLIES in Learning & Literacy
Individuals across District 49 aim for excellence every day. For some, it encompasses working hard in and out of the classroom. For others, it is about demonstrating D49’s values on a daily basis. The board of education honored four individuals during Fantastic 49 festivities before the regular board meeting February 14 for their commitment to always going above and beyond.
Seventeen D49 teachers received accolades from principals, and recommendations from students and parents to prompt selection as their school’s Teacher of the Year.
