THE GIFT OF ATTENDANCE:
This holiday season, the best gift you can give your child is a good education. And the best place to get an education is in school. It’s tempting to extend your vacation by a few days, but remember, those days count as absences. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time. So make sure your child is in school every day, right up until vacation starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning.
En esta época festiva, el mejor regalo que usted puede darle a su hijo es una buena educación y el mejor lugar donde puede obtenerla es en la escuela. Es tentador querer extender sus vacaciones por unos días, pero recuerde, estos días cuentan como ausencias. Sólo unos pocos días perdidos aquí y allá, incluso si son ausencias justificadas, puede significar perder mucho tiempo de aprendizaje. Por lo tanto, asegúrese que su hijo venga a la escuela todos los días hasta que las vacaciones inicien. Nuestros maestros enseñarán y nuestros estudiantes aprenderán.
Welcome to the Momence Community Unit School District and our website. It is an honor and privilege to serve as superintendent of MCUSD#1. In the Momence community, we take pride in our diversity, our excellent quality of life, and the success of our local schools. Our district is committed to bringing out the best in each and every child and recognizes that strong schools are the foundation of a strong community.
We believe in the extraordinary potential of all of our more than 1,100 students and are committed to meeting their individual needs. Our work together requires teamwork, dedication and collaboration. That collaboration extends beyond our school district staff and students to the entire community. This school year the district will continue our strategic planning process, and plan to engage the community in our vision, which will guide us on our journey. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff, and with the help and support of our community look forward to creating new levels of greatness.
I look forward to working with all members of our school and community family as we continue to make strides in the education of our young people!
I invite you to join our journey toward excellence. If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to call us at 815-472-3501.
Yours in education,
Mr. Shannon M. Anderson
Superintendent of Schools
