A Big Thank You to the Winnebago Lion's Club and the Winnebago PTO for being Co-sponsor for the Jean McNair DARE program. DARE is Drug Abuse Resistance Education for Jean McNair 5th Grade students. CUSD #323 is one of only two schools in Northern Illinois that are lucky enough to still have this program up and running.
Remember McNair PRIDE stands for POSITIVE, RESPECTFUL, INTEGRITY, DISCIPLINED and EDUCATED.
“We believe in a safe, caring, and cohesive environment where dedicated teachers inspire and engage the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally to become independent, self-motivated, life-long learners. Students will be productive, responsible contributors to our society while demonstrating Jean McNair Pride”
The Parent/Student Handbook for all District #323 students has been revised for 2016-2017. The handbook contains information about school days schedules, dress code, bus behavior, field trips, and other school policies.
At our school, bullying of any kind, by any person, is unacceptable. All students should be free from worries about being bullied. Students who bully others must be taught other, appropriate ways of interacting with peers.
