The summer is a great time for professional development. Mrs. Dumey, Mrs. King, and I had the great opportunity to attend a professional development session with Jennifer Connolly at the St. Clair County Regional Office of Education. In this workshop, Jennifer guided us through a technique that can be used with students to help them learn to respond more constructively to each others' written work.

Our Science Club organized a Community Recycling Day with Power Recycling. Citizens dropped off office equipment, machinery, and appliances. Our focus this year in Science Club is ecology and caring for our environment. We started the year off the right way by hosting the recycling drive. Our next one will be on Saturday, October 19th.

We held a special day for our retiring superintendent, Peggy Burke. Families, faculty, and staff recognized and thanked Peggy for her years of service to the Whiteside School District. Over her twenty-two years, our great District has grown and improved in so many aspects. Peggy Burke was recognized from the Illinois State Board of Education for her fiscal leadership and her desire to make connections with our students. Best wishes to you, Peggy Burke!
