WILLIAMSVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT TAX LEVY
Public school finance is often viewed as a complicated process. This is an attempt to explain the levying process in order to give you a better grasp of school finance practices. The Williamsville School District must post a notice in today’s paper regarding the tax levy. This is a legal notice required by the Illinois State Board of Education. Because of its format, the levy notice is very misleading. It is imperative that taxpayers understand that the district is not raising taxes by 18%. The levy is just requesting the school’s share of the tax dollars available in new property growth and CPI applied to existing property under the tax cap. A tax levy is not what the district actually receives. In reality, the tax rate applied by the school district will decline under the tax cap as the value of property increases. Here is a brief explanation of the budget and levy cycle.
The second graders had a Skype visit with children's book author Steve Metzger. He read his book, The Silly Turkey Party to them, and talked to them about what it takes to become an author. He answered lots of questions and was a pleasure to meet!
Once again the communities of Sherman and Williamsville never fail to amaze! On October 26, Sherman Elementary and Sherman County Market came together to collect non-perishable food items for the local food pantry. On Friday, November 13, the students and staff of Sherman Elementary had collected 250 items. Mrs. Lindsey challenged the students to collect 350 items by November 20. The students took the challenge and surpassed it. On Friday, November 20, County Market delivered 560 non-perishable food items to the local food pantry!! Earlier this week, the food pantry had to shut down due to no food. With today's donation, the doors are open once again! Thanks so much for being such caring communities!
Festival of Trees: Again this year, the WJHS art students decorated a 7 1/2' tall tree for the Festival of Trees. The Festival is a community service project that is sponsored by the Memorial Medical Center Foundation. Money raised by the event is used for special needs such as nursing scholarships, or to assist families with critically ill children. This year the theme is "Building Traditions". The WJHS art club designed a tree based on Christmas traditions around the world.
The Festival of Trees takes place at the Orr Building on the State Fair Grounds. It runs the week of Thanksgiving. Stop by and see all the beautifully decorated trees and don’t miss our JH tree!!!
