    Dear McHenry 156 Family,

    It is hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close in just a few short weeks. I am thrilled to announce that we will honor 162 seniors with a Distinguished Warrior stole this year. The Distinguished Warriors have not only challenged themselves academically, but also served our community consistently over their four years in high school. I look forward to celebrating with our DW recipients and their families at the Distinguished Warrior Community Celebration Banquet on May 19th. We are also excited to celebrate the graduation of our 2019 Senior Class on May 22nd at the West and East Campus commencement ceremonies. On behalf of the staff, administration, and School Board I want to congratulate our Distinguished Warriors and Graduating Seniors. There is no doubt you leave us ready to face any challenge or adversity with the heart and spirit of a WARRIOR. We wish you the very best in all your future endeavors.

    We are preparing for a very busy summer as we being construction at West Campus and building improvements at East Campus. The following are a list of projects:

    East Campus - Capital Projects (Summer 2019)

    • Installation of new Geothermal HVAC System in all Classrooms and Offices
    • New Classroom Ceilings and Ducted Vents
    • New Interior and Exterior LED Lighting throughout the Building
    • New Classroom Flooring
    • New Building Automation System (BAS) & Commissioning on all Equipment
    • New Roofing & Roof Top HVAC Units

    West Campus - Capital Projects (Summer 2019)

    • Complete West Campus Pool Project - Interior Tile replacement for Pool and Deck (HVAC and Filtration System were replaced last summer)
    • Construction of 10 new Tennis Courts
    • Construction of new Parking Lot (next to South Lot) 200+ spaces
    • Begin Foundation Work for New Building Extension on the North Side of the Building

    Construction of New West Campus Building Extension (Center for Science Technology and Industry) will continue throughout the 2019-2020 school year. The extension will open in January (2nd Semester) of 2021. However, we will not transition to a Freshmen Campus at East and 10th-12th Grade Campus at West until the Fall of 2021.

    I want to thank our parents and students for their support as we begin this amazing journey together. We know that without your support, none of this would have been possible. The future of District 156 is bright and I hope you have a wonderful summer break with family and friends. Thank you to our amazing students, parents, and staff members who make McHenry District 156 such a rich and vibrant school community.
