8th Grade Celebration
Panther Families, April Superintendent Message Our Community Relations - State of the Schools Video Series Beginning in 2008, LeRoy CUSD #2 started holding annual State of the Schools events in person.  The intent was to transparently share where the district had been, where we are currently, and forecast vision to the future.  Communication methods have evolved over the years, and everyone seems busier by the day.  In an effort to reach as many families as possible, this year we shared our State of the Schools through a short video series on April 10th.   This year, we began releasing a district quarterly newsletter.  Our first two issues were released in October and January.  Electronic versions were posted on our Facebook page and hard copies were located at various locations in the community.  The third issue will be released the week of April 15th, but, rather than putting out our own hard copies, we will begin putting our newsletter in the LeRoy Leader.  This will help ensure community members that are not on social media will have greater access to our newsletter.  The newsletter will also still be shared through our Facebook page.  Our Student Achievement - 2024-25 Academic Calendar Note the last day of student attendance for the 2023-24 school year is May 23. Graduation is May 19th at 2:00pm at the football field. The 2024-25 Academic Calendar is attached.  Our Board of Education also approved the 2025-26 Academic Calendar, which is very similar to the 2024-25 calendar and will be released soon.  Next year, we will utilize a hybrid of Emergency Days and E-Learning Days to help provide predictability to our calendar.  The first 2 school cancellations would be traditional snow days that would have to be made up.  The next 3 school cancellations would be E-Learning Days and would not need to be made up.  Details of potential E-Learning Days will be developed and shared next December.  This procedure guarantees the last possible day of student attendance would be May 29th.  By school code, we have to make up 5 Emergency Days unless we have a waiver to use E-Learning Days.   Unique highlights of the 2024-25 calendar include: May 28 - August 12 Dud Berry Gym will be closed for HVAC Replacement August 14  First Day of Student Attendance November 5  No School - Election Day (State Law) January 6 No School - Teacher Institute Day May 18, 2:00pm Graduation  May 22 Last Day of Student Attendance (no emergency days used) May 29  Last Day of Student Attendance (all emergency days used) Our Facilities - Summer Work As everyone knows by now, our big project for this summer is the replacement of the Dud Berry Gym HVAC System.  This work will begin as soon as school ends and will be completed just before the start of next school year.  Thanks to a generous $100,000 donation from the LeRoy Education Advancement Foundation (LEAF), we have a late June installation scheduled for an additional playground at LeRoy Elementary School.  This playground will increase equipment for all students and feature handicapped accessibility as well as sensory play items.  We will extend a portion of our current accessibility path to the playground, and will extend that same path to the baseball/softball concession area.   Our Finance - Budget Performance The 2024-25 budget continues to perform well.  We are 75% through the fiscal year and have 25% of our budgeted expenses available.  We are also receiving revenues on time and as scheduled.  This year we have encountered a couple of unexpected Health, Life, Safety expenses in the replacement of a failed sink in the 5th/6th grade wing, RVS Gym HVAC repairs, and early Dud Berry Gym HVAC work.  Outside of those expenses, our budget has performed as developed.   Thank you for your continued support of LeRoy Schools. Go Panthers! Jeff Baughman Superintendent

LeRoy High School Senior Abigail Clapp was selected to receive this year's Good Citizens Scholarship Award presented by the Letitia Green Stevenson DAR Chapter. Abby was chosen from an outstanding group of twelve seniors from McLean and Woodford County schools. Each year the local DAR Chapter requests that area schools nominate one senior to receive the Daughters of the American Revolution Outstanding Good Citizenship Award. Abby was nominated by teachers and faculty based on the ideals of character and citizenship exemplified through the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The Letitia Green Stevenson DAR Chapter honored each of the twelve area Good Citizen recipients with a $100 monetary award, a DAR Good Citizen Pin, a recognition Certificate, and a red/white/blue cord that can be worn at the student's graduation ceremony. Congratulations to Abby on being named the Outstanding Good Citizen for LeRoy High School and on being selected as the winner of the $1,000 DAR Scholarship.

Senior Intern Spotlight: KARLEY SPRATT I have been interning at the Orthopedic and Shoulder Center. At this time, I can only observe what my mentors are doing, but I've learned a lot about how to interact well, build connections with patients, and my knowledge about the human body has greatly expanded. This experience has made me realize that healthcare is definitely what I want to continue to do in the future!

This week, high school PE students traveled to the Yoga Lab in Bloomington where they participated in two classes: Power Yoga & Restorative Yoga. They also enjoyed mini açaí bowls after class. Following yoga, they ice skated at the Pepsi Ice Center. One goal of Mrs. Leinweber’s Fitness and Wellness PE class is to introduce a variety of fitness activities as well as showcase life-long fitness opportunities in our own community and surrounding areas.

Senior Intern Spotlight: BROOKLYN SPRATT At my internship at H&H Family Dental, I have been observing the hygienist, rolling instruments, and making hygiene trays. Through this experience so far I have learned that it’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them. My internship has helped me expand my knowledge about dental hygiene and helped me gain skills to use in my future!

Senior Intern Spotlight: LAUREN BOSSINGHAM Last semester I interned in Kindergarten, and this semester I am currently interning under Mrs. Clarke in first grade. The opportunity to intern at LeRoy Elementary School has better prepared me for when I become an elementary school teacher. Interning has given me so much knowledge and experience. Through this internship, I have been able to experience what it is like to be hands-on in a classroom setting. I have also learned many skills from my mentors, such as classroom management, flexibility, organization strategies, and communication techniques. By having the opportunity to do this internship, I have been able to confirm that teaching at the elementary level is something that I am passionate about.
