2017-2018 School Calendar
The District 105 Board of Education adopted the 2017-2018 school calendar at its March meeting.  A new component of this calendar is an early-dismissal schedule, one day per week.  During the 2017-2018 school year, students will be dismissed on Wednesdays at 2:15 PM.  The early-dismissal days will replace the 6 half-day dismissals that currently exist in our calendar.  
A community letter discussing this topic, and the 2017-2018 calendar is attached here.

EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENING SET FOR DISTRICT 105
School District 105, which serves the south LaGrange, Hodgkins, and Countryside communities, will be hosting a preschool screening for children ages 3 -5 years old on Wednesday, April 19th from 8:30 am-2:00 pm, at the Hodgkins Park District in Hodgkins. The screening takes about one hour and requires an appointment. Parents must schedule a time to be screened by calling 708-482-2760. A team of professionals from the district will assess each childs development in the areas of large and fine motor skills, pre-academic readiness, speech/language, vision and hearing. 

The screening will help identify children who may qualify for one of the free district preschool programs, or those who would benefit from additional services prior to entering Kindergarten. 

Children who are currently enrolled in a District Preschool Program (ECE, Early Learning or Preschool for All) do not need to be screened. 

If you know of a child in the District 105 area who would benefit from these services, please share this information with their family.
