Box Tops/Labels for Education: Keep collecting Box Tops and Labels for Education over the summer, and return them to school in the fall!!
Recycling Park View Clothing: Have your children out grown their Park View Spirit Wear? Our Social Worker, Erin Walsh, is looking for gently used Park View clothing to recycle to some of our Park View students. Send in your items to Mrs. Walsh via your child's backpack and please wash prior to sending them in. Thank You!
Park View Families in Need: At Park View School and other District 89 schools, there are many families in need. The Park View PTC would like to highlight two ways you can assist these families:
- Community Outreach: The Park View School social worker, Erin Walsh, works closely with many families in need. Occasionally, she will identify a specific need and will send an email to a distribution list of people who might be able to donate the item in need (coats, shoes, boots, jackets, etc.). If you are interested in joining this distribution list, please email Mimi Cunningham (email@example.com) or Megan Rafferty-Flatter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Family Tree Resale: District 89 has partnered with Family Tree Resale (575 Roosevelt Rd, Glen Ellyn). When you donate gently used items to this store, Family Tree Resale will provide vouchers to the Park View School social worker, Erin Walsh. Erin will distribute these vouchers to families in need so they can shop for free at this store. When you make your donation, tell them you are with District 89. It's that simple! For more information on this program, see our flier located on the Event Forms page.
CCSD89 Strategic Plan: The Strategic Planning Committee has developed a 3-5 year strategic plan for the District which was presented to and approved by the School Board over the summer. The presentation material is available at https://v3.boardbook.org/Public/PublicItemDownload.aspx?ik=34330268.
E-Backpack: District 87 (Glenbard South High School) and other outside organizations are able to publish information in the District 89 e-backpack to let parents know about programs and upcoming events. For your convenience, we have included a link to the e-backpack in our Quick Links menu above.
Facebook Community Pages: If you use Facebook, there are a couple community pages that might interest you. Just search for the "Park View & Glen Crest Parents Forum" or the "SoRo - Glen Ellyn, IL" pages.
