Don't Miss V.I.P. Day on Wednesday, November 20th!
If you are a parent, grandparent or one of the many other "Very Important People" in the life of one of our Illinois Students, we invite you to come and visit us during V.I.P. day on November 20th! We will have some morning refreshments just before our guest, Dawayne Bryant, speaks at 9:00 a.m. in the Commons. Afterward, there will be time for all of our V.I.P.s to visit classrooms until 11:30 a.m. Please plan on visiting Illinois School and make our children feel very important, too! :)
