Sunday was a dynamite day at Dirksen! There was a record turnout for the Run to Read. It was a beautiful day and it was great to see so many students, parents, and staff participating in the events. Dash did well in the mascot race, and it was fun for the children to be able to see all of the district mascots!
Again this year, we will be implementing a child sexual abuse prevention program in our schools as the result of the passage of Public Act 097-1147, also known as Erin’s Law. This law expanded upon previous legislation and required child sexual abuse prevention education for children beginning in pre-kindergarten and continuing through all grade levels. Please read the Erin’s Law Letter for more information on your child’s classroom presentations.
