Chiari Awareness Campaign 2014
A current 8th grade student, Abigail Anderson, was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation this past summer. Knowing that September is Chiari Awareness Month, Abigail wanted to do something to impact this debilitating disease. Abigail came up with the idea for the Elmwood Jr. High School to start a Crush Chiari campaign to raise money and awareness for the Conquer Chiari Foundation.
Abigail designed and sold shirts and bracelets. The Jr. High Student Council organized bake sales and sold Crush soda. And our student body responded to the call, ultimately raising almost $700. All of which was donated to the Conquer Chiari Foundation.
Thanks to Jr. High Students for supporting a great cause. And a special thanks to Abigail and her family for their courage and positive outlook. By being a role model, Abigail is helping others around her raise awareness and crush Chiari one day at a time.
Will you help too? Visit the link below to donate to the Conquer Chiari Foundation today!
2015 School Board Elections
Elmwood Community Schools District 322 will have four (4) School Board seats to be filled at the April 7, 2015 Consolidated Election. Candidates who are elected will fill four-year terms expiring in April 2019.
Candidates for the office of school board can begin to circulate nominating petitions for signatures beginning September 23, 2014. The period for filing nominating papers runs from December 15 through December 22, 2014.
Unlike previous years, changes in the state election laws have moved the responsibility of school board elections from the local board secretary. Those duties will now be handled by the county clerk, or board of election commissioners. Candidates may want to contact the county clerk or the board of election commissioners to see if there are places other than the main county office where they can file their nomination papers:
Peoria County Clerk
324 Main St., Room 101
Peoria, IL 61602
Candidates for school board will not be filing any paperwork at the local district. The county clerk may have petition forms available or blank petitions may be downloaded from the State Board of Elections website at http://www.elections.il.gov/.
Candidates may also want to consult the “2015 Candidate’s Guide,” which can be downloaded from the State Board of Elections website, or contact the county clerk or board of election commissioners regarding the requirements of filing.

Please feel free to consult with any of our faculty members.
Please note that teachers will be eating between 5:00 and 5:45 P.M. on Wednesday and Thursday and will not be available at those times.
