Parent Help Needed with Baskets

The Peru Education Foundation will be hosting our Third Annual Trivia Night on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at Celebrations. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the event will start at 7:00 p.m. We outgrew our previous venue and we expect to fill the tables at Celebrations as well.


Each team needs a theme, so start thinking and planning! The cost is $100 per table with ten people maximum per teamRegistration information is available by clicking here, and you can also visit the Third Annual Trivia Night Facebook event page. You can simply call the district office to reserve a table at 815-223-1111. Please share this with your friends or others who might be interested!


Please contact either Superintendent Mark Cross or Foundation Chairperson Eric Heagy if you are interested in having your business sponsor a table or a trivia round. Hundreds will be in attendance, so it's not only a great cause, but also an advertising opportunity. 50-50 tickets are also available in advance and you do not need to be present to win!


Finally, from parents we are asking for a little help.  Each grade level has been assigned a theme, and we are asking families who are able to donate items to contribute to a themed raffle basket which will be created by their child’s grade.  We would also gratefully accept monetary donations, which would be used to purchase additional items for baskets and/or wrap and ribbon to create the baskets.


We will begin accepting donations immediately on Monday and will end our collection on Friday, February 19. Donations may be sent to your child’s classroom teacher.
