Dear Students, Parents, Staff, and Alums of Deerfield and Highland Park High Schools and Members of the District Community,

On behalf of the 113 Education Foundation we wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2018!

2018 GRANT AWARD RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED!

With the new year we are happy to announce our 2018 grant award recipients! The Foundation awarded over $40,000 in grants for 2018 to 17 recipients spanning different departments and areas including the performing arts, STEAM (Science Technology Engineering, Arts and Math), humanities, language arts, social emotional wellness, leadership and diversity. Our 2018 Signature grant provided the funding to bring a FUSE lab to Deerfield High School just as we funded one last year at Highland Park High School.   In partnership with Northwestern University, the FUSE Lab provides hands on, self-directed projects to hundreds of students wishing to explore STEAM, both as a way to bring excitement to their own learning and as a possible career path. The inaugural recipients of the Linda Gordon STEM Innovation Grant in memory of HPHS Math teacher, Mrs. Linda Gordon, will be announced at the District 113 Board of Education Meeting on February 26th at 7:00 p.m.  Click on the 2018 Grant recipients tab to view all of the 2018 awards.
