TOP SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
facebook A few years ago, Eagle Pointe Elementary School first-grade teacher, Scott Samek and his wife, lost their third child at just five days old. After receiving a tremendous amount of support from the community after unexpectedly losing their son Maverick, they launched Memories for Maverick, which encourages spreading random acts of kindness. As another way to remember Maverick and support the Samek family, Eagle Pointe held the 4th annual Maverick Mile on September 6, 2019. #202proud View more photos at: www.psd202.org/album/20/1609
