A Message from the Superintendent
June 10, 2021
Dear South Holland School District 151 Families,
Registration for the 2021-22 school year is now open for all new and returning students! The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 10, 2021. If your child(ren) will be enrolled at Taft, Eisenhower, Madison or Coolidge next school year, please register your child(ren) for the new school year as soon as possible. This will help us to prepare for your child(ren) to return to school on the first day. For the 2021-22 school year, we will be providing In-Person Learning for ALL students. Students will attend school in person beginning on the first day.
We are asking all families to register their children for school as soon as possible. Please keep reading for some important information about registering your child for school.
Once again, ALL returning students will be registered online using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is an online system that can be accessed from any computer with internet access 24 hours a day 7 days per week. This gives our families the flexibility to register at a time that is convenient for them. Please log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and click the link to register your children for the 2021-22 school year.
Information about registering for the 2021-22 school year can be found on our district website (www.shsd151.org ). Families with returning students who have questions or need assistance with registration can contact the district office at 708-339-1516.
If you need to come into the district office to provide residency or other paperwork or to get assistance, please be aware that you must wear a mask. We encourage you to call ahead to make an appointment.
If your child is new to School District 151, please visit our district website (www.shsd151.org) for information about starting the registration process. Families of ALL new students must come to the district office to provide required documentation.
The 2021-22 School Calendar is now available. Please note that South Holland School District 151 will return to a Balanced School Year Calendar for the upcoming school year. There will be three Intersessions. Schools will offer intersession programs in October, January, and April.
Ready Day One!
Once again, we are providing our “Ready Day One” program as an incentive to complete the registration process! Each student that is registered for the 2021-22 school year will receive a backpack with school supplies! We want to ensure that every child is ready to start school on day one! Thank you for your support.

Superintendent of Schools
Get to Know Dr. Teresa Hill
I have served as Superintendent of South Holland School District 151 since 2012. Prior to coming to School District 151, I served as an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction in Bloomington, IL and Barrington, IL for a total of six years. I have served as an Elementary School Principal and Elementary Assistant Principal in Central Illinois. I started my career as a Kindergarten teacher in Peoria Public School District 150.
After attending Franklin Elementary School and Lincoln Junior High School (District 148) and graduating from Thornridge High School (District 205), I earned Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees in Elementary Education and Educational Administration and Foundations from Illinois State University. My research and service interests focus on the achievement gap, school improvement, curriculum and instruction, equity, and reading instruction.
As an educator, my favorite thing to do is visit schools and watch student learning. Most School District 151 students have seen me at one time or another visiting their classroom, walking through the hallway, or watching their extracurricular activity. I am inspired by the great things we can do with and for students both inside and outside of the classroom.
My motto is "All children can learn . . . Period."
