Principal Appreciation Week

Since 1990, the Governor of Illinois has designated the third full week of October as Principal Appreciation Week.  This year is no different with October 19-24 being proclaimed by Governor Quinn as Principal Appreciation Week culminating with Principal Appreciation Day on October 24th. 

I encourage all of you of Hartsburg-Emden CUSD # 21 to convey your well wishes to our outstanding principal, Mr. Terry Wisniewski.  His dedication and loyalty to our district is unmatched and he is a tireless worker on behalf of the school children of this district.   

It takes great courage to serve in this leadership role in the 21st century and courageous leadership is essential to effectively educate students and work to provide the resources to be successful in today‚Äôs world.   

Congratulations and thank you Mr. Wisniewski!
