Final Day for the 2013-14 School Year Announced

April 14th, 2014

Grant Park School District #6 has recently received approval of our 2013-14 amended calendar. The last day for students will be Tuesday, June 10th with a 1:55 p.m. dismissal. Also, there is no school for students on Monday, June 9th due to the rescheduled Teacher’s Institute. The administration of Grant Park School District would like to extend a sincere “thank you” for your cooperation, patience, and support when school was cancelled during this difficult winter.
The 2014-15 proposed calendar has been submitted to the Illinois State Board of Education. We expect approval shortly and will have a link for the calendar on our website in the very near future. Registration is scheduled for August 6th and the first day of school for students is slated for Wednesday, August 20th.

District #6 Board Member Dale Hansen Receives Presitigous Award

March 14th, 2014

Grant Park School District #6 veteran board member, Mr. Dale Hansen, was recently recognized at the Three Rivers Spring Division Meeting on March 4th, 2014, in Joliet. Mr. Hansen, who has been a committed board member to the students and staff of Grant Park School District #6 for nearly twenty-three years, was presented with the “National School Boards Association Award for Distinguished Service to Public Education.” This award is extremely prestigious, as less than one percent of school board members in the United States reach this distinctive status. Dr. John Palan, Superintendent of Schools, noted, “Mr. Hansen is truly motivated to serve the students, staff, and community of Grant Park by ensuring that our school system is second to none. He truly understands the role of a board member, and District #6 is very fortunate to have his services.” Congratulations to Mr. Dale Hansen for being named the recipient of this elusive award.

Congratulations to GPHS Illinois State Scholars
