For Parents

Greetings PIC Families,     

It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome each of you to the 2021-2022 school year.  As I embark on my 7th school year as principal of Peotone Intermediate Center, I am very eager and honored to share this school year with you and your child.  Our teachers are continually searching for innovative and creative ways to engage students to get them excited about learning.  PIC strives to provide opportunities for students to grow academically, socially, and to understand their connection to their community.  We have high expectations for all students and in order to ensure success, this year will be a joint effort between the students, teachers, administrators and parents.       

It is very important to maintain positive communication with our families throughout the year.  PIC is appreciative of PTO for the creative fund raising opportunities scheduled throughout the school year as they bring our school and families together to support our students and teachers.  I encourage every parent to become active in PTO to ensure another successful school year.   Our PTO has partnered with district office over the years to support purchase of technology and various classroom supplies for teachers and students.  Our commitment to your child is genuine and the teachers’ interaction with you is essential to your child’s education – both academically and behaviorally. 

I look forward to working together with you throughout the school year.  I welcome the opportunity to answer any questions or address your concerns in person, via email or a phone call. Thank you for the opportunity to serve Peotone CUSD 207U.
