Eunice McConville, Board Member The Foundation was formed in 1987 to serve as a link between the community and the schools. Through the Foundation, funds and resources are provided to enhance and enrich educational opportunities for all District 202 students that would not otherwise be possible. The pursuit of excellence and quality education is the top priority for the District. The Foundation provides resources beyond the normal operating budgets for educational programs and activities for students. Local businesses, individuals in the community and the school district working together can help to ensure a successful future for all students. Lisle Education Foundation

Shifts in English Language Arts Students and teachers increase their use of content- rich non-fiction to build knowledge. Students are required to use evidence directly from the text (fiction and non-fiction) to progress in Reading, writing and speaking. This includes defending their thinking verbally and in writing. Students require regular practice with complex text and its academic language. Students who read many different types of text at multiple complexity levels become better readers, writers and thinkers. Early Litera cy Instru ction
Students as Readers and Writers(Authors) Students need quality texts of different kinds. If it has words, ask your child to read it. Time to read makes better readers…take 20 minutes before bed and READ! Discussion using evidence from the text-”show me in the book how you know that” TALK
