On Wednesday, October 30th, District 145 fifth grade students participated in a Kindness Retreat presented by Youth Frontiers, Inc.  We would like to thank the District 145 Foundation for Education for funding this opportunity for our students.  Without their generous donation this would not be possible.

On Saturday, October 19th, 45 Eagle students participated in the Lincoln Pumpkin Run. Eagle students will be receiving an award for having over 10% of the students from Eagle participating in the run. Click here to view photos from the event.

The facility planning process includes a community advisory committee to the Board of Education meeting at every school to learn more about current and future facility needs. The last scheduled meeting on November 25 is expected to provide recommendations for consideration of future planning. Materials from each meeting have been updated and posted on our website. 

Many other student accomplishments are being recognized in District 145, such as students attending the FFA national convention, and WHS students being selected for all-state music.
