Hartley, Superintendent School District 158 is planning to build a new elementary school in response to rapidly growing enrollment. Tentative plans call for a referendum next November to fund part of the project. Help is needed with the information campaign. To organize the process, a meeting has been scheduled for 7 pm, Tuesday evening, April 22, in the High School Cafeteria. Interested people are encouraged to attend. Details of the proposed project will be presented and discussed. Enrollment is growing at nearly twenty percent per year and the rate of growth is accelerating, a significant building project is expected every two to four years. Each project will probably require a referendum. Due to the rapid growth, failure of a referendum could result in severe hardships. Projections indicate enrollment will increase by between 300 and 400 students per year for the next few years. It is critical that all proposals be approved the first try. We cannot afford delays. Therefore, it is critical that the project selected be palatable to the voters and that the voters be well informed. Please attend the meeting on April 22nd and help. ., CELEBRATE YOUR HOMELAND!

Jeff Lesniak, an 8th grader at Huntley Middle School, placed 42nd out of the top 63 in the Regional Science Fair. He will continue on to the state level competition held in early May.
