Dear Wolves Parents and Families,
Can you believe we are through the first month of the year? Time flies when we are having fun and great success! The first month of the year has flown by and the month of February is full of amazing events. I encourage all families to continue to follow Oswego East by viewing our website, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat (more stories to come soon). I believe social media can be a positive tool of communication and Oswego East will continue to use our social media outlets to share information with the community. I also encourage all parents/guardians to download the SD 308 APP, sponsored by Earth Movers Credit Union. The app allows parents to view classes, grades, attendance, and assignments. The app allows for parents/guardians to receive messages from the school and district. The free SD 308 APP is available on any Android or Apple devices. Please contact the main office if you need assistance with Home Access or the SD 308 APP.
I would like to acknowledge the hard work of our students and staff, as they continue to make us all proud at Oswego East. If you hadn’t heard, we had students and teachers represent Oswego East at the Presidential Inauguration. Seniors, Amber Fystro and Dyson Kiser visited the White House and experienced the change of leadership in person on January 20th. Escorted by Jim Vera, the Social Studies Department Chairperson, both students were able to travel to Washington D.C. by receiving Inauguration tickets from a local congressional member. To read more about their experience, click here. We recently received amazing news that four students received top awards for their artwork at the recent Scholastic Art Competition, which had over 1,000 students in competition for the top spots. Reese Rousseau, Amanda Jarosik, Kaitlin Mikrut, and Rebecca Lawlor all received awards for their art work with Reese Rousseau receiving top recognition for his piece titled, Isolation. To read more, please go to our website for additional information. Congrats to our Girls Bowling Team, as they are the Conference Champions as of this past Saturday. The girls bowling team will go on to represent Oswego East in the IHSA Regionals competition Saturday, February 4th. Finally, I would like to send a huge Wolves howl to our dance and cheer teams. Our JV and Varsity Dance and Cheer teams are the heart and soul of Oswego East and they have represented our school at the highest level this year. Although their magical competition season has come to an end, they will continue to grace us with outstanding performances for the remainder of the basketball season. We are very proud of their dedication and commitment to the EAST motto!
In closing, thank you for allowing me and my staff to be a part of your child’s learning experience. Please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of my staff if you have questions or suggestions on how we can better serve you and our students. You are truly the best and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of the Oswego East Wolves family. Go Wolves, Forever!
Yours truly in service,
