End of School Year 2019-2020
When District 89 had to cancel in-person classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic students, teachers, administrators and the school community were left wondering how, when or if our lives would return to normal. Yet, through these difficult times instruction continued in District 89 via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, YouTube and other creative means to keep our students engaged. We also continued to feed our students and to date we have distributed over 220,000 meals.
The #D89Community is a strong one and we remain committed to serving our families.
Unable to host end-of-the-year music concerts, the D89 Music staff collaborated with fellow teachers and administrators to record this virtual music performance as a tribute to our students and community. The song “From Now On” (from the Greatest Showman) was chosen for its powerful lyrics which speak of “returning home…” and “remember(ing) who all this was for….” We will return home, and we will make music together again.
