Superintendent's Message

Dear Mokena School District Family,

Happy New Year, I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Holiday Season!
I would like to thank everyone for their cooperation during the extreme cold temperature days that caused us to cancel school. The cancellation of school is never and easy decision to make, but the safety of our students and staff is one of our number one priorities in these emergency situations. Although recent weather has not been kind, I always remind myself that the days are getting longer and warmer weather is just around the corner.
We have much to be thankful for as we start a new calendar year. With the return of our full-day kindergarten program we continue to focus on our goal to reinvest in our students and schools. I continue to be confident that with the support of our community Mokena 159 will continue to be a thriving school district and distinguish ourselves in 2014 as an outstanding district!

Dr. Omar Castillo
