Fun Foundation Events to Kick-off Summer!

You can join the District 54 Education Foundation for our 20th annual golf outing on June 12 and make a difference in the life of a child!

This outing at the Schaumburg Golf Club is the Foundation’s largest fundraising event. All proceeds support the Food 4 Thought breakfast program, STEM after-school clubs and grants for students from financially struggling households. This year we were able to award nearly $35,000 in grants for 330 students to participate in summer programs and classes!

Please consider supporting District 54 children by becoming an event sponsor or golfing. We are also looking for items for our silent auction, as well as gift cards from local businesses to award as prizes.

Visit the Foundation website to sponsor, register or for more information.


Report Cards Online June 5

Dirksen parents/guardian will be able to view report cards online this semester on June 5, more than a week before the hard copy report cards are mailed on June 14. District 54 is piloting the online report card in an effort to share information in a timelier manner and to become more environmentally friendly by not printing report cards for parents who prefer the online version.

I want to ensure that all of our parents have access to this early viewing of the report card, so I highly encourage you to sign up for the District 54 Infinite Campus Parent/Student Portal before June 5. The portal is a website and app where parents and guardians can view their children’s grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and now report cards.

If you have not previously logged on to the portal, contact our front office for instructions on how to obtain a secure Campus Portal Activation Key.

If you have already created an account, to view the report card on June 5 you must first log in to the account from a computer (the report card will not be accessible in the app).

Click on the Report Card link on the left side of your screen. This link will take you to another page, where you will be asked to log in again for security reasons. After logging in, you will see the report card files for all of your children. Click on any of the report cards to download the pdf file.

This year, on June 14, we plan to mail a report card to each home. Next year, we will only be making hard copies available for families who are unable to access the report cards online.
