It may be the last day of school, but we still have two more retirees to celebrate! Collectively, Judy Kubas and Lisa Morrow have 70 years of teaching in Flossmoor School District 161. While the years of service to D161 students, staff and family is astounding, it's the memories and relationships they've built that will resonate for generations. Thank you to Judy and Lisa for your dedication to the mission and vision of District 161. Enjoy your well-deserved retirements!

Stop by Flossmoor Hills School for a Census Swag Bag on Friday! We’re entering the home stretch for the 2020 Census, which officially ends September 30. Responding to the Census is critical for our community because it determines federal and state funding for the next ten years. If you haven’t responded, you can easily respond by visiting my2020census.gov. If you have responded, tell your neighbors and friends to do the same. Help spread the word by sporting a tie dye Census t-shirt. Village of Flossmoor staff will be in front of Flossmoor Hills Elementary from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, September 4 to hand out Census 2020 swag bags, including a t-shirt and a tie dye kit! Stop by to grab your kit for a little DIY tie dye project over the long weekend. Village staff can also help you respond to the Census while you’re there.
