The Athletic Boosters are continuing their project of selling gift cards. With the holidays approaching, we want to again stress this money-making project that we have. Many of you will be buying gift cards as gifts. The Athletic Boosters order gift cards from a company that allows us to keep some of the profit that the companies make when they sell you the gift cards. You receive the same gift cards that you would purchase at the stores. They cost you nothing more and you receive exactly the same value. The Athletic Boosters receive some of the profit and that profit goes towards the equipment and uniforms that we purchase for the school and our athletes.
Attached is a list of some of the gift cards that we are able to order, the denominations that they come in and the percent profit that we make. There are many others, totaling 760! If you don’t see what you want, check the scrip website online for the list. The list in available at www.glscrip.com. The link to the list is on the bottom of the opening page under quick links retailer list.
Beginning Nov.22, I will pick up orders at the school each Friday moming by 9 am. The orders usually arrive in 3 days. The last day to order is Dec.13. Use the order form below or send you order on another sheet of paper. The order and check made out to Warren Athletic Boosters can be sent to Kelly in the high school office, Sally in the elementary office or you can email me at [email protected] or call 815-745-3844 and then send your check to Kelly in the high school office. I also have quite a few gift cards on hand so call or email if you need a last minute gift. Thanks for helping the Athletic Boosters raise money for their projects!

All medication must be brought to the office by the parent. Students should NOT be transporting any prescription or non-prescription medications to school. No medications are to be kept in a student’s possession, desk, or locker, with the exception of authorized EpiPens or Asthma inhalers. Any questions, please contact the School Nurse.
Every school system is unique, but they all are connected by a shared aspiration: that all students have an educational experience preparing them to be effective lifelong learners and contributors.
Now more than ever, that experience must not only provide for the acquisition of rigorous academic content, but it must also be more intentional about fostering critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and other 21st century skills our young people need to thrive in this complex, rapidly changing world.
Our Graduate Profile serves as a North Star for system transformation. Providing our strategic direction for the redesign of the overall educational experience for our students. This collective vision reinvigorates and re-engages students, teachers, and community stakeholders.
As part of our planning process, with the help of our area business leaders and chamber of commerce, we have identified a set of attributes and skills our students need to ensure they are future ready! We have created the graphic below as a reminder of our mission.
Stay tuned as we will explain what each set of attributes means to our students as they progress through their education.
