Anne Marie's Law/Teen Depression and Suicide Awareness Implementation
In compliance with the recently passed, Ann Marie’s Law (P.A. 99443)
(http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/fulltext.asp?Name=099-0443), middle school students will participate in yearly programming about teen depression and suicide awareness. Participation is highly encouraged but an opt-out option will be available. Building social workers are also available to provide support to students and families with mental health concerns.
We will have an informational meeting for parents/guardians on Tuesday, April 4 at 6:30 PM in the auditorium. Information will be presented by Ms. Peggy Kubert from the Erika's Lighthouse organization. Ms. Kubert will be discussing with parents/guardians the videos that will be shown in their child's health class. Student lessons will take place no less than two weeks after the April 4th parent meeting. For more information about Ms. Kubert, please visit: https://www.erikaslighthouse.org/our-staff.
Any questions: Please contact Mrs. Mullen @ 708-447-8030 x124

A huge thank you to Beth Kovacic, Jason Gold and Stephen Fitzsimmons, a Komarek parent and employee of Pacific Life. Via their commitment to STEM education, we received a $1,500 grant from Pacific Life. In the near future, our elementary students will be programming robots and learning computer coding during their computer time.
We are looking forward to our 80th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, April 28th at 6 pm, and we hope to see you there! In the meantime, the committee has been working together to create a great evening. Local businesses have been donating items to support our celebration, and there are several more items that we are requesting. Please, see the link below for the requested items.
