Food Pantry

Iroquois Student Uses Desire for Black Belt to Assist Food Pantry – When Samantha (Sam) Bahena, an Iroquois Community School student, needed to organize a community project to earn a black belt, she organized a food drive for the Des Plaines Food Pantry. Sam created, printed, and distributed flyers to other students at the martial arts studio. In two weeks, she collected enough food and clothing to fill the back of an SUV. Congratulations Sam for modeling how a community ambassador helps others.

Board President Stephanie Duckmann congratulates Iroquois P.E. Teachers Anne Beranek and William Snyder for receiving the IAHPERD Blue Ribbon Award.

Iroquois Community School P.E. Program Awarded Blue Ribbon – Iroquois Community School received Blue Ribbon status from the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. The Board of Education recognized the work of physical education teachers Anne Beranek and William Snyder in achieving the award.

Following a comprehensive program evaluation, a four-member evaluation team visited the school to observe the program and survey teachers, students and parents. This distinction is awarded to an elite group of schools based on specific criteria and evaluation of curriculum, instruction, medical safety, facilities, equipment, financing and administration. The teachers will receive the award at the state conference in November. “The best part of the process was learning what students thought about Mrs. Beranek, myself and the program,” Mr. Snyder said.
