lllinois Park benefits from a number of community partnerships throughout the year. The United Way Reading Buddies programs helps us connect with various organizations and individuals to bring volunteers into the classroom to read to students and help them with reading strategies. These organizations include Elgin Community College and the Elgin Rotary Club.
We partner with Changing Children’s World Foundation to bring Parent Education Workshops/Discussion Groups to our families.
We also partner with Westminster Christian School and their community outreach program. Westminster students volunteer their time at our schoolwide events as well as plan and run our annual field days. Westminster Christian School students continue to partner with a Illinois Park Students and participate in activities.
Bernie's book supplies free books to our students to take and keep at their home multiple times throughout the year.
We partner with Northern Illinois Food Bank as we participate in the mobile food pantry, Backpack program and food drives.
Thank you to all of our partners!
