Mackeben Elementary School students and staff honor a number of local heroes within the community during the months of February and March.
Each of the school’s pods adopted a community organization to research to help students gain an understanding of the importance of local community support. Students wrote letters and cards to honor these “heroes” and thank them for what they do.
Organizations recognized through the efforts include:
- Square Barn PTA
- Fire Departments of Huntley, Lake in the Hills and Algonquin
- Park Districts and recreation centers of Huntley, Lake in the Hills and Algonquin First Grade
- Police Departments of Huntley, Lake in the Hills and Algonquin
- The Huntley 158 Board of Education
- Mayor of Huntley and Village Manager’s Office.
