Volunteers needed for hot lunch, concessions

Eisenhower Junior High PTA needs volunteers to help manage the Hot Lunch and Concessions programs. If we don’t get volunteers, these programs will have to be cancelled for the 2017-2018 school year.

Hot Lunch is offered once a month at all lunchtimes. Tentative hot lunch dates are listed on the volunteer form. Chairmen/co-chairs work with local restaurants to offer hot meals for our kids. You would not do this alone as you would have volunteers to help.

Concessions are sold during Hot Lunch and Nacho Days during the school day and after school at athletic events when Eisenhower is the hosting school for cross country, track and field, and boys’ basketball and girls’ volleyball tournaments.

This form includes all volunteering opportunities

If you are interested in chairing or co-chairing the hot lunch program with a friend, or you want to volunteer for other events, please contact PTA President Jenn Sklena at, 847-490-8110.

Volunteer Form 2017-2018

‘Within Reach’ is new Reflections theme

Reflections is the National PTA arts program that asks children to get creative! Students are invited to create works of art in any of six different arts categories, reflecting upon a different theme each year. The six arts categories are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. The theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Within Reach.”

Eisenhower student advances to state level of PTA Reflections program

Seventh-grader Vineeth’s film production project, Special FX Mania, will advance to the state level of PTA Reflections.

Vineeth is one of seven in the Film Production category and 40 students from District 54 that will advance to the state level.

Reflections is a PTA writing and fine arts competition. The theme of the 2016-17 Reflections program was “What Is Your Story?” District 54 students were able to submit an entry in any of the following six arts areas: film production, dance choreography, literature, musical composition, photography and visual arts.

There will be a reception honoring the Reflections students from PTA District 37 (which includes School District 54) on March 14.

Congratulations and good luck to Vineeth!
