Elk Grove Teacher Awarded Golden Apple
The Golden Apple Foundation honored another suburban educator on Friday, rolling into Elk Grove Village to surprise Admiral Byrd School first-grade teacher Sara Magnafichi.
During an outdoor mask break with her students, Magnafichi was surprised by Golden Apple officials, Elk Grove Township Elementary District 59 representatives, her family and the media, who charged the playground to present the award.
Block Schedule Pilot
Having adopted block schedules during the 2020-2021 school year to better accommodate student and staff needs during hybrid learning, District 214 will now implement block schedules for all of its comprehensive high schools as a pilot program.
District 214 reached this decision after receiving positive feedback about this year’s schedule from students, parents and teachers and additional positive feedback by way of parent surveys. Additional details of the schedule and several potential advantages identified by District 214 may be found here.
After the pilot concludes, we will review data and once again survey students, parents and staff regarding future years’ schedules.

In order to gauge the interest in student vaccinations, District 214 is asking parents or eligible students to complete an interest form by the end of the day on Friday, April 30.

Elk Grove Graduation
Wednesday, May 19, 2021
District 214 students’ success in the annual IHSA Journalism competition has continued, with eight students placing in the State Finals.
The High School District 214 Board of Education honored nine individuals with the District’s Distinguished Service Awards. The awards are given annually to people who have made significant contributions to the District and its students.
A pandemic initially expected to affect schools for a few weeks had dragged on for months. The circumstances were challenging the patience and resilience of students and teachers alike and impeding District 214’s usual practice of placing students in work-based learning experiences.
Rawlinson used her penchant for building and nurturing relationships with students even after graduation to bring back one-time Orchesis dancers to discuss their careers, including positions in human resources, the medical field, business and marketing and architecture. She worked with Wheeling teachers to match students with alumni whose careers matched the students’ interests.
In March 2020, Broadway and local productions alike were forced to shut down in response to COVID-19 to protect audience members, crew members and performers. While theater has yet to return to District 214 in its original form, D214’s theater departments have taken advantage of unconventional platforms to encourage artistic expression.
Roughly 3,000 teams of high school students began this year's National Youth Cyber Defense Competition months ago. Only a dozen in the Open Division earned the right to compete in the late-March National Finals competition and one of these is from right here in High School District 214.
