Sponsored Events

These events are not fundraisers, instead we depend on other fundraising efforts to make them possible.

Woohoos and Boohoos Welcome!


On the first day of school (*for grades 1-8), drop off your school kids (or wait until the bus picks them up) and then head over to Great Oaks Church (515 IL-116).

There, you will meet and mingle with other parents. We'll have coffee, water, light snacks, and juice for the kiddos. Kindergarten and younger kids are welcome to play in the gym! Both elementary and middle school parents will be there so you can ask any questions you have, including: How does the car pickup line work? You can also find out about PTO opportunities as well!

We can't wait to see you on August 15th! (It will be open house style from 8:15 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.)

Reading Night

Our Annual Reading Night is a chance for students and their families to spend time with their teachers while they share the joy of reading. In the past, there was the opportunity for each child to read to a support dog, hear the teachers and the principals read stories, and every student received a free book.

Class Parties

Class Parties are something the elementary students look forward to year after year! Class parent volunteers create crafts and games for the kids to celebrate Halloween, Christmas and Winter Break, and Valentines Day.

Teacher & Staff Appreciation

We love to celebrate our teachers and staff! Every year in May we create a weeklong series of treats and surprises to show them how much we appreciate them. We've catered lunches, provided breakfast and coffee, and helped parents get them the gifts they would like the most!


We are fortunate to have an annual Buy One Get One Free Scholastic Book Fair in the spring due to the success of our fall fundraising book fair. Everything at this fair (which is usually held in April or May) is buy one, get one free. It is an excellent opportunity to stock up on summer reading or to get the fun extras at a great price!

Author Visits

By partnering with our amazing librarian, our students have been very fortunate to hear from a variety of authors including Aaron Reynolds (Creepy Pair of Underwear), Tom Watson (Stick Dog), our very own Amy Ward (Crunchy, Not Sweet), and many, many more! Students also get the opportunity to get autographed books- even from some of the remote author visits. The next time you are in the Media Center, check out the Author Wall of Fame with actual signatures and messages from our in-person author visitors.
