Help Our School Win
Momence Jr. High has the opportunity to do its part in saving the
planet! We’re participating in an energy conservation program called
Powered Up, and through this program, ComEd customers at our school
can request a FREE Resource Kit to be delivered to their homes. For
every 100 kit requests from our school, we’ll automatically win $250.
If you have a student in grades 6-8, please help us out and request
your FREE kit! Go to ResourceKit.org or call 1-844-452-1160.
New Breakfast Program Models
- Traditional breakfast:
Students are offered breakfast before the beginning of the school day.
- Breakfast after the bell:
Students that arrive at school after the bell have the option of a grab-n-go breakfast. This breakfast can be picked up in the cafeteria.
- Second-Chance Breakfast:
New this year is a breakfast period offered following the first or second period of the day. This is not a second breakfast. Second-Chance breakfast is offered to students who have not yet had breakfast.
Je-Neir will have a portable refrigerator centrally located so that a staff member can retrieve a breakfast. They will also need to alert food service staff, or the office as to the student’s name.
Junior High and High school students may report to the cafeteria at any time before lunch to grab a breakfast.
Notes: A student that is reduced price or full paid will be charged for the breakfast.
Only 1 breakfast per day per student.

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.
