Before I get back to the monthly shenanigans of Mr David Stachura, and his speechless pal Mr Kowalski I want to take a few minutes to talk about Schiller Park School District 81, and how I will be spending more time next year acknowledging all of the amazing things that go on as a result of the hard work and dedication of the teachers, staff, administrators, and volunteers of the School District.
The last few months have seen so much of my time spent on the bad things that were happening through the efforts of David Stachura, Patricia Godziszewski, Jonathan Kowalski, and Seahorse that I lost sight of how amazing all of the staff, and volunteers truly are. I had failed to acknowledge how amazing this School District truly is, but as long as David Stachura, and his sole remaining colleague in the fight for evil remain on the board there will always be sad stories to tell. As the late great George Carlin once said “Just ’cause you got the monkey off your back doesn’t mean the circus has left town”. Being a child of the sixties I know full well he means a very different monkey, but it also applies to the situation that was, and to an extent still exists in School District 81.
Many great things happen at Schiller Park’s Schools on a daily basis. Administration and staff are continuously being recognized for exemplary service. Students are regularly being recognized for their service to the community, and to their fellow students. Parent organized groups being recognized for their efforts. There has been multiple amazing performances put on by the school’s band, and chorus. Don’t forget the outstanding performances by the cast and crew of Lincoln Middle School’s “Into the woods”. I honestly don’t have the finger stamina to recount all of the examples of excellence from this past year, but as usual I ask you not to take my word for it, and take some time next year to attend any of the wonderful events put on at any of the three schools. I promise you will not be disappointed.
I will also never stop watching the actions of the people who are hurting the education of the children of this district, but the many wonderful accomplishments have to be shared, and shared loudly.
David C Stachura, and John Kowalski to the best of my knowledge attended zero of the events after the completion of the April 7th election. None of the graduations or concerts………I repeat… They couldn’t even find the time to attend one single graduation of any of the children they swore to support.
