McLean County Unit District 5
Mission Statement

"Unit 5 will educate each student
to achieve personal excellence."


    "You were made to be AWESOME!
    It's SOCKTOBER!!! 

    What is Socktober?  Socktober was launched by Kid President creator, Brad Montague, five years ago. It’s a movement to get kids and grown-ups to help the homeless in an easy, fun way. Please click here to read about a simple way we can help the homeless. 


    Picture Re-Takes Day

    Picture re-takes will be done on the morning of Tuesday, November 1st.  If your child was absent or if your child had their picture taken, and you are interested in re-takes, please either email Mrs. Pals for an order form or have your child stop in the office to pick one up. Class composite pictures will be sent home a few weeks after the picture re-take day.  Yearbooks will be sold later this winter and will be delivered in May.
