Superintendent's Message

Dear Mokena School District Family,

Welcome back, I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Spring Break! 

I can’t believe how fast this school year is going.  Before you know it, students and staff will be preparing to end the school year and advance to the next grade level. This has been an amazing first year for me as superintendent of schools.  I appreciate all of the support that this community has shown.  I am very happy to work with a great group of students, parents, teachers, administrators and, support staff.   With the support of our whole school community we can only get better each day!

As we look forward to the future of our great school district, continue to keep in mind, students are our number one priority. Without them, we would not be.  So, as we continue to set goals and reach for higher standards, we will do so with the mindset of producing the smartest and greatest kids in Will County.  I continue to be confident that with the support of our community, Mokena 159 will continue to be a thriving school district and continue distinguishing ourselves as an outstanding district in the years to come!

Have a great end of the school year and wonderful summer!


Dr. Omar Castillo
