Mrs. Stephanie Healy, Principal

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I know this is going to be an amazing year for all of us. I am honored to be your principal for the second year.

I would like to introduce myself. I have worked for Matteson School District 162 since 2002 as a teacher at almost every grade level and as assistant principal at O.W. Huth Middle School. I have had the unique opportunity to watch many of the students in our district learn and grow from the time they entered school through college and beyond.

It is my goal to preserve the traditions of the Arcadia School while moving forward, utilizing the ever-evolving tools modern technology provides educators. I truly believe our children can do anything. It is our job to provide them with the foundation they need to become the scholars and leaders of tomorrow.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with your comments, concerns and/or questions. I look forward to seeing you around the building.

My name is Bill Howard and I am now in my fifth year as Assistant Principal in Matteson School District 162. I could not be more excited to be part of the team here at Arcadia and know that together we will achieve great things in the upcoming school year! I am looking forward to helping shape the educational opportunities of some of our youngest learners in District 162.

Prior to serving as Assistant Principal in Matteson School District 162, I was a Dean of Students and Art Teacher at Lincoln-Way West High School for seven years, and taught Art in Franklin Park Elementary Schools and Chesterbrook Learning Academy prior to that. During my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, volunteering at the local animal shelter, and being outdoors.

The partnership between schools and home is essential. Please work with the teacher to keep the lines of communication open and positive. Do not hesitate to call me at any time to help set up a meeting, share a concern or let us know how we can better help your child have a positive learning experience and reach success.
