  • On Saturday, October 29, 2022, the U-46 community and partners came together to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Bilingual Program at Tefft Middle School in Streamwood. The celebration was hosted by the Multilingual and Multicultural Education Department and featured a panel discussion from current and former U-46 staff members who spoke about the evolution of the program, as well as student performances by Mariachi Joya Dorada de U-46, the District’s student mariachi band, and other community partners.
