Essential Needs fund/School Supply Drive SUCCESS

Our “essential needs” fund supports students and families, since academic achievement requires first having basic needs met. We began this year with the purchase of student school supply kits and a school supply drive. We thank our community partners for hosting collection boxes: Lions Panzek Martial Arts, Winfield Fire District, Winfield Park District, Winfield Library. We were able to equip all students with the tools they need to start the year off right! We're grateful to the residents and businesses, including TransPet Services, Barber Shoppe of Winfield, Lions Panzek Martial Arts, who donated to our drive. Please contact us at for other ways to contribute.

  • Mr. Wdowiarz's middle school classroom (materials to develop a bioactive enclosure for their classroom pet, which has been a subject of study and a valuable addition to the students' daily experience)

  • All students will benefit from Mr. Siemienkowicz's request for cabinet lighting in art and project display cabinets, to better highlight and instill a sense of pride and accomplishment for our students' work!
