The Monticello Area Education Foundation and historic Allerton Park and Retreat Center announce an exciting event to raise money and have fun while supporting Monticello’s students and schools.
The historic mansion of Robert Allerton will be transformed into a Las Vegas style casino for one night only on Friday, November 7, 2014 from 7:00pm-10:00pm. Food, drink, raffles, and auctions will accompany our many gaming tables. Unlike Vegas, the house doesn’t always win because all proceeds will go to support the MAEF and its mission to support, enrich, and enhance the educational opportunities and initiatives in Monticello CUSD #25.
To purchase tickets go to: https://maef-vivalassages.eventbrite.com/
$25 dollar ticket gets you entry into the event, fun money for gambling, and complimentary appetizers; additional fun money, cash bar, raffle and live auction will also be available. Space is limited so order your tickets today; 21 years old and over only. Also consider becoming an annual member of the Education Foundation for $35 per year.
“Shall the Board of Education of Monticello Community Unit School District No. 25, in Piatt, DeWitt and Champaign Counties, Illinois, acquire, construct and install a project to acquire the site for and construct a new high school, construct renovations to the existing high school and Washington elementary school and close out White Heath and Lincoln elementary buildings, and related fixtures, equipment, facilities, improvements and costs, and issue bonds of such School District to the amount of $40,000,000 for such purpose?”
A full bond sale is estimated to cost the owner of a property with a market value of $100,000 at most $190 in new taxes. If approved a New Monticello High School would be constructed, elementary students would be combined onto one campus, and Lincoln and White Heath Schools would be closed out and re-purposed. The Board has four priorities for this project going forward (1) enhance/maintain current programming at all grade levels, (2) build on a school site close to town, (3) retain the elements of traditional school construction, and (4) enhance the efficiency and sustainability of the district through green technologies.
The 2014-15 SAGES School Pocket Calendars are available in all school offices. Please note an error in the last day of school as printed in these calendars. The last day of school without snow days will be May 28 (not May 27 as indicated). This means MHS final exams will be scheduled for May 26, 27, and 28. There is no end of year Teacher's Institute Day. If five snow days are used our last student attendance day will be June 4. The online printable calendar has been corrected. We apologize for this confusion.
Monticello Schools and the Piatt County Service Company have partnered to invite you to Fuel the Sages. This program creates a unique opportunity that the entire community can participate in to help raise money to help offset the expense of purchasing iPads for the school district. All that is needed in the Fuel the Sages program is purchases of gas or diesel fuel with an FS FUEL 24 card from the FAST STOP located at 427 West Marion or other FAST STOP sites throughout IL, IA and WI.
