Superintendent’s Message

Interim Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Von Mansfield


Spring means a new season is well underway and soon we will quickly be bringing another school year to a close with the students’ last day on May 31, 2024. We are most fortunate to be able to sit back and reflect on all of the great accomplishments of our students and staff.  Their many successes this year deserve a hardy congratulations for a job well done.   Hopefully, you had an opportunity to experience our remarkable students in person as a spectator at an athletic contest or an activity. We are always happy to have parents and family along with members of the community attending our programs offered throughout the school year.   

Again, let me express my appreciation for the honor of serving the district as Interim Superintendent this current school year. The hospitality, interaction, partnership and collaboration that I have experienced from the students, staff, community, and Board of Education continue to impress and inspire me. Along with our administrative team, faculty and staff, we are committed to continuing and providing academic, social/emotional and extra-curricular opportunities for all students to succeed while attending Hazel Crest District 152.5 schools. Their continued success while attending our schools, and their continued success once they leave our schools, is the mainstay of our mission. 

The hard work of our talented and dedicated faculty and the outstanding accomplishments of our students culminates at this year’s graduation on May 23, 2024. I will be proud and honored to witness this year’s graduating class as they walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, the pinnacle of their elementary education. That proud moment is the culmination of your influence and support, their hard work and accomplishments, and our unceasing effort throughout their elementary education. 

Summer is right around the corner, please consider the enrichment opportunities available to our students through summer school. More information is available by contacting our district office at 708 335-0790.

Kudos to our dedicated faculty who teach, lead and enhance the lives of students each and every day. Enjoy these final weeks of school as you help students reach the completion of yet another milestone in their educational career. 

We are all looking forward to the well-deserved summer break. Please use this time to relax, refresh and revitalize as we head into the 2024-2025 school year. Have a great summer!

Sincerely,Dr. Von Mansfield
Interim Superintendent
