Congratulations Jim Spring! Leland School is beyond proud of our own Mr. Jim Spring. He has been selected as the Illinois state winner of the Daughters of the American Revolution Outstanding Teacher of American History award!! Mr. Spring has been our High School history/social sciences teacher since 2001. Most recently, he was the brains behind a new Local History course elective for our students. He's a very active member of the Leland Town and Country Association, Bethany Lutheran Church, and spends much of his time playing and singing sweet music! Jim, and his wife Mary, live and love Leland - and that passion comes through in the classroom. I recently overheard someone say, "Mr. Spring enjoys what he does and that translates to awesome connections with the students. It's what makes him special!" Mr. Spring will receive an award at the Youth Day Awards luncheon during the Illinois DAR State Convention in April. Furthermore, his nomination will be forwarded to the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution for consideration. Congratulations, Jim Spring, on this amazing award and thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and love of teaching with Leland students! Jim was presented this award by Deb Davy, of the area DAR organization, along with his wife, Mary Spring, in front of the high school students and staff this morning!

We decided to move everyone away from the windows and into the interior of the building. The students are now back in class. The students perfectly acted as has been practiced in our safety drills!

Hello Panther Community, Leland School is excited to offer an after-school enrichment program for students who might need a little extra assistance on their course work. Each week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday Leland staff will be available until 3:45. Students can spend time getting some guided assistance on class assignments or additional instruction in areas of need. There will be 2 different sessions that are always available. One will be for K-5 students while the other will be for 6-12 students. If you are interested in having your child attend this additional support, all you have to do is mention that they will be attending the after-school program on our new pickup patrol system (K-5) or call the office staff (6-12). If your child is on a regularly scheduled bus route, that is no problem. The district is providing additional transportation after the 3:45 program and students will be dropped off at their regular after school location. We really hope the addition of this program can help all of our students and families. We look forward hosting this support. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact me by email or phone. firstname.lastname@example.org -- Chris Bickel Principal, Leland CUSD 1 815-495-3231
