    Dear Steeple Run Families,

    The winter season (including colder weather) is here and we have so many gifts to celebrate in our wonderful school!  Steeple Run is a wonderful school community thanks to our supportive parents, Home and School, SFCP committee, volunteers, amazing staff and super star students! 

    Our Veteran’s Day Ceremony was a big success.  Twenty veterans joined our celebration and were introduced by their student escorts.  I was so proud of our students on this day.  The students came into the gym so respectfully and gave their attention and focus to the veterans throughout the ceremony.  The student escorts who introduced our guests did a wonderful job.  They were confident and proud to introduce the relative or friend they brought with them on this special day.  Students sang patriotic songs and we learned about Veterans Day.  Thank you, boys and girls, for your great respect on that day.  Honoring our veterans was a gift that touched many hearts.

    One last note…

    The 5 Essentials Survey is now available for parents at https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/. The survey window will close on January 16. We encourage all parents to go online, find the schools that their students attend, and fill out the survey. The survey only takes about 10 minutes and will provide valuable feedback to our schools in the School Improvement Process. If you do not have access to a computer to take this survey online, you may visit one of our schools to take the survey.

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
