District 108 has now used the five emergency days that were built in to the 2013-2014 calendar. When all five emergency days are used, Act of God Days may be applied if additional emergency days are needed. Act of God days do not have to be made up at the end of the school year.
Other than extending the school year to make up the five emergency days that have been used, there will be no other changes made to the 2013-2014 calendar. Therefore, the last day for student attendance will be Thursday, June 5, and the District Institute will be on Friday, June 6.

We are excited to begin the new school year in District 108. We look forward to working with your child(ren) and your family as we strive for continuous growth and learning. The faculty and staff within our schools are dedicated to ensure each student has a fulfilling experience and works toward achieving his/her potential. We are proud of the numerous quality educational opportunities we offer to the children of the Pekin community. The mission of District 108 is to prepare responsible, productive, lifelong learners through active partnerships with our learning community.
We believe that raising children to be productive citizens and contributors to society requires the effort of many adults. This task calls for a partnership that goes beyond the walls of the school and confines of the school day. In order to form productive partner-ships we must constantly seek the means to better meet the needs of all children. It is with this in mind that I extend an offer to you to become involved in the quality work of our district. Most important, it is vital to communicate with your child’s teacher and principal on a regular basis. Also, we welcome the opportunity for your extended support through your school’s parent organizations and respective volunteer programs.
Whether your child is new to or returning to Pekin Public Schools, it is with great pride and enthusiasm that I welcome you. The entire Pekin community can be very proud of Pekin District 108 as we are pleased to enter into a partnership with you this year and for years to come.
