I'm excited for you to witness how much this grant will impact the beginning of our school's new band program! The newly purchased items will play a big role in the general music setting, as exploring the synthesis within a recording student is something that my students are so keen to learn about. - Mr. Marshall
We look forward to incorporating the new tools supported by the grant into future lessons. - Mr. Dickert
Our kids will really benefit from this grant! - Mr. Olson
With the grant from the Education Foundation, our Ghostlight Readers Theatre has been able to provide free admission for RLHS students & staff and inexpensive tickets to the general public to our four productions this year. Our productions have also been used to support curriculum in science, social studies, and world languages classes. 38 student performers and technicians have been directly impacted by the grant, as have the roughly 900 audience members who attended the various productions. - Mr. Charles Frieman
July 2017 Flood In July 2017, the Round Lake Area experienced catastrophic flooding. Sadly, two school libraries were destroyed. Images of the flooding prompted support from local, state and regional organizations! Over 100,000 books were donated to RLAS-116 in hopes to replace the ruined books. In addition, many organizations donated monetarily - their donations helping to renovate these library/tech spaces into innovative spaces for children. The RLAS-116 Education Foundation served as a flow through organization for these donations. We are pleased to announce that Ellis Elementary School in Round Lake Beach and Murphy Elementary School in Round Lake Park are home to brand new Limitless Learning Commons!
