District Dish

  • Every few months, District 25 sends out a newsletter via our Smore service to each parent and any community member that wishes to receive it. We hope it is a quick reference to keep D25 parents and the Arlington Heights community informed of the big events and news that occurred from the previous month in District 25. If you are a parent and did not receive last month's newsletter, and you wish to, please email Communications Coordinator Adam Harris at aharris@sd25.org. If you are a community member and you wish to receive the newsletters to stay up to date on everything AHSD 25, email Adam Harris (aharris@sd25.org) or subscribe below!
