Irving art teacher Nikki Bussan invited watercolor artist Carol Boerckel to share her talents with students in art class today! Classes sketched a drawing, topped it with a wash of watercolor, then rolled the paper into lantern. These will be on display at the upcoming fifth-grade art show at @bloomingtonlibrary. Great job, Mustangs! #artclass #watercolor #paint #paperlanterns #guestartist #elementaryschool #arteducation #artteachersofinstagram
Rep. Darin LaHood visited BJHS yesterday to speak with 8H students and answer questions about his role in Washington, D.C., and how it impacts our region. Thank you, Rep. LaHood, for taking time to visit District 87 and connect with our students!

Did you know February is Career & Technical Education Month? D87 is proud to be home to the @bloomingtonareacareercenter where wonderful teachers like Linda McVey and Tyri Riehle help students build skills for future careers -- in their case, cosmetology and nursing. These two educators were nominated for the Exemplary Teacher Program through the Illinois Career and Technical Education Innovation Curriculum Project last week! Thanks for all you do, ladies!

A special tree has sprouted up in the center of Stevenson's library. The school participated in the One School, One Book program last week, collectively reading "Wishtree" by Katherine Applegate. The book focuses on kindness and acceptance. Stevenson Tigers attached wishes to the tree, explored their differences through games, and danced together in the halls. Great job, Tigers! #oneschoolonebook #wishtree #schoolculture #celebrate #diversity #elementaryschool #library #read
This was a big weekend for the Wrestling Raiders! Sophomore Chad Bellis won the state championship yesterday, our fourth-ever state champ for the school.

Stevenson is the school of the month! We love these displays in the library celebrating Black History Month. The books feature leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and Frederick Douglass. Other books displayed were written by African American authors. Which one would you like to read? #blackhistorymonth #literature #library #reading #books #blackleaders #blackauthors #MLK #RosaParks #harriettubman #frederickdouglass #elementaryschool #February #education #BloNo

Have you ever been on a blind date...with a book? 💘 The 6J team at BJHS had the chance to pick a book based on its description alone. They guessed the genre, then unwrapped the paper and decided whether they wanted to date (read) it or not! What a fun way to discover new novels. Thanks to Emily McCready for creating the activity and Jessie Nicoson for hosting in the IMC. #valentinesday #blinddatewithabook #genres #books #library #schoollibrary #juniorhighschool #GreatToBeInD87
Happy 210th birthday, Abe Lincoln! This portrait and poster at Stevenson says it all. #abrahamlincoln #happybirthday #Illinois #education #leader #inspiration
Yesterday, teachers at Bent were surprised by leaders from @eastviewchurch. Eastview presented each Superstar teacher with a $300 gift card to use in their classroom! The congregation "adopted" Bent after opening a second church campus on Union Street in Bloomington.
Thank you for supporting our educators and welcome to the neighborhood! #communitysupport #GreatToBeInD87 #partnership #community #teachers #teachersofinstagram #classroom #Blono #thankyou
Creating a learning environment that is safe, inclusive, and uplifting for students is a major focus today for educators. Not In Our Schools BN, a group that focuses on ending hate, bullying, and bigotry, encouraged the community to nominate D87 individuals that go above and beyond to elevate classroom culture and relationships.
Join the district in congratulating and supporting these outstanding individuals by attending the Not In Our School Celebration of BN School Employees from 7-8:30 p.m. March 4 at IWU's Hansen Student Center. Reservations can be made by following the link on District87.org.
