• Churchill Students and Parents,

    I’m extremely excited to be the new Principal at Churchill Elementary School! I have worked in education as a middle school social studies teacher, middle school assistant principal, elementary (Pre-K through 5th grade) principal and intermediate (5th and 6th grade) school principal.

    My wife, Kristi, our two sons and I have lived in District 308 for sixteen years. My sons attended The Wheatlands Elementary School, Bednarcik Jr. High and Oswego East High School. My older son, Jackson, is now a Sophomore at Elmhurst College, while my younger son, Michael, will be a Senior at Oswego East.

    As an educator, I believe that all students can learn. If students aren’t learning, it is our job as teachers to reflect and determine what steps we need to take in order for students to be successful. As a principal, I will always work to ensure school safety is my top priority. Furthermore, I will do my best to be visible in the school and available for students and parents.

    I look forward to meeting you at Oberweis Dairy and Ice Cream on August 6th between 5:00 and 7:00.  If you can't make it, we'll see you at the Preview Night on August 13th from 5:00 to 7:00.  Remember that class lists will be posted on August 8th at 4:00 p.m.

    Please feel free to email me at lpiatek@sd308.org or call me at 630-636-3810.

    Enjoy the rest of your summer!

    Sincerely,

    Larry Piatek
