MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202
50x4

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

Here is this week’s selection of D. 202 news and information:

census 2020, everyone counts!

The 2020 Census will be held this spring. It is vitally important to our community that everyone be counted. The Census helps determine our legislative districts and federal funding.

Here is some basic information about the Census.

Did You Know?

Children five years old and younger were one of the most undercounted groups in the last Census (2010). Apparently, many parents thought the Census didn’t count younger children.

Not true! EVERYONE counts!

Please make sure to count everyone in your household, no matter their age.

For more information please visit 2020Census.gov

Week in Review

TOP SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
instagram image from instagram Creekside Elementary School fourth grade teacher Patti Owen recently taught her students about caring. Her lesson sparked student's interest in giving back and being caring to others. Ms. Owen's class decided they wanted to help others by collecting items patients at St. Jude's Children's Hospital could use such as books, crayons, etc. Seeing the interest in her students to collect donations and give back to St. Jude's, Ms. Owen invited a former student of hers, Grace Howe, who is now in college, to visit to give a presentation on St. Jude's. Howe has been volunteering at St. Jude's for a few years now. During her visit to Creekside, Howe brought some rocks for students to color and write encouraging messages to give to patients at St. Jude's. #202proud

facebook image from facebook Members of the Plainfield South Leadership Corps volunteered at Thomas Jefferson, Charles Reed and Meadow View elementary schools on Thursday, January 16, 2020.
