Do you have clothing and other school-related stuff at home that is clean and in good condition but your kids have outgrown or that you just don't need anymore? 
  • Willow/Churchill/James Hart spirit wear
  • Music uniforms: polos, black dress pants, black dress shoes
  • James Hart PE uniforms
  • Halloween costumes
Bring it and leave at our clothing exchange tables. Maybe another District 153 family could use it!
We strongly encourage you get a little exercise by walking or riding your bikes! There are plenty of bike racks on Aberdeen and at the entrance to James Hart on Morgan Street!
If you must drive, there is limited parking at the James Hart Morgan Street side, Lion's Club Pool, across Ridge Road at the Izaak Walton ball fields.
If you park on the nearby streets, PLEASE BE KIND and MODEL GOOD CITIZENSHIP by not blocking our neighbor's driveways.
**Remember: This is a "fair weather only" event.**  Rain cancellations will be posted on the district website and on the district's Facebook page.
