UPDATE: Language Stars Spanish Classes - Enrollments are CLOSED

We were thrilled to see so much interest in our after-school Spanish classes. 75 enrollment forms were submitted and registration is now CLOSED. As advertised, we are only able to accept the first 15 students enrolled for each section (45 students total). We will soon be sending emails confirming enrollees and inviting those who didn't get a spot to be added to a waitlist.

Please do not submit payment until you've received confirmation that your child(ren) are enrolled. If your child receives a confirmation email, you will be invited to pay the fee either via paypal or by check in order to secure your spot. Payments are due on or before January 8th. If you DID send payment but did not get a spot, we will gladly issue a refund.

For those who indicated interest in being a Parent Volunteer, please note that we will be contacting you shortly - either to confirm or decline.

Cash Donation Fundraiser

Has your family participated in a Parents Night Out?

Did your child enjoy our recent school assembly?

Are you going to the annual Roller Skating Party on January 14th?


Our EPTO is a 100% volunteer-based organization of parents/caregivers who partner with District 23 teachers, staff, and administration to promote learning opportunities for our students and build relationships in our shared community. Funds raised by district families enable the EPTO to cover costs associated with the various activities, programs and materials that enrich the educational experience of our students while bringing the D23 community together. 

Please consider making a CASH donation to our For Our Kids Campaign to help us meet our goal of $10,000. Letters went home in backpack mail last week. You can also find the letter in the below flier section.

This fundraiser eliminates the laborious and time consuming processes of traditional fundraisers that often require students to sell overpriced merchandise door-to-door, collect money, transport merchandise home and then make delivers. Direct cash donations allow the EPTO to keep all the revenue for our students instead of splitting it with a fundraising company located somewhere outside of our community. Finally, your cash donation is tax deductible! 
There are two ways to donate:
  1. Go to d23epto.org, click on the DONATE button to contribute via PayPal.
  2. Fill out the bottom portion of the letter and send back to school with a check or cash (attention: EPTO For Our Kids Campaign).
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
