Over 200 district staff, community officials, parents and local businesses attended the Third Annual State of the District Dinner at Oak Lawn-Hometown District 123 to celebrate the District’s accomplishments and critique what could be done better, under the theme of “Stronger Together”.
This years layout was something new for each attendant – 13 different breakout sessions hosted by members of the community. Topics like “How Mentors Empower Students”, “Branching Out with the Library”, and “Why Kids Need Kiwanis” were covered in 30-minute sessions chosen by attendees.
“Through a rich dialogue designed to engage participants and gather feedback we hope to build trust and enrich perspectives of all District 123 partners and community members,” said Paul J. Enderle, Ed.D., Superintendent of District 123.
The evening ended with a final group real talk, allowing the group to discuss topics as one community enriched with multiple opinions, proving how we are stronger, together.
