Tis the season to help others 

Fenton staff and students are participating in various ways to help those in need as this Thanksgiving and Holiday seasons draw near.

Fenton Student Council hosts Blood Drive - Tomorrow November 15

Parents, Alumni and Community members are welcome to participate in the Student Council Blood Drive during the day Thurusday. Come by Fenton with your ID and participate between 11am and 1pm. Check in at Door #1 and tell them you want to donate blood. Thank you to all who support this event.

Mrs. Roberts shared her story of giving this holiday season

As the weather turns and our season gets busier with the holidays, we have some students at Fenton that are in need. Fenton has partnered with Holy Ghost Community.  After talking with Margaret Salaski and Kathy Grant, they immediately tapped into their community.  Within 24 hours, the community responded with $500 in gift cards for gas, food, and restaurant vouchers and another $500 worth of toiletries and hygiene products. Holy Ghost is generous as well and will be providing Turkey dinners and weekend food baskets to assist our families. Community members have heard about the need and are looking to provide additional supports to our students and families in need. This community is amazing to work with and work for!  Thank you to Holy Ghost for jumping in to help our families in need.  When their basic needs are met, it is a little easier to focus on learning at school.  Happy Thanksgiving to all! 


Veteran "hat, glove & clothing" drive

The collection bin will be located outside of the main office at Fenton to collecct new hats, gloves and clothing for Veterans from November 14th-16th. All donations will benefit the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Hines, IL. All donations will be greatly appreciated and will help veterans in need.

Bensenville-Wood Dale Rotary Coat Drive and Bensenville Toy and Food Drive

Since 2001, Bensenville-Wood Dale Rotary has provided more than 10,000 local children and families in need with warmcoats, mittens, hats, and scarfs for the winter. This year, in partnership with Operation Warm, Rotary is aiming to raise $8,000 to buy 400 new coats for children of all ages and sizes, and we are seeking sponsors to support this effort. Donations can be made online at www.operationwarm.org/BensenvilleRotary  

Make the holidays a little brighter for the families right here in Bensenville by donating new and unwrapped toys, new or gently used coats and new hats, scarves and non-perishable food items at Fenton High School before December 1. There is a box in the front office.


Wellness Committee holds Winter Harvest Sampling during lunches

On Friday, November 9, Fenton Wellness Committee and Sodexo hosted a Fall Harvest Sampling with various foods for student to try during their lunches. The foods which were prepared with the help of the Family Consumer Science "Foods" classes included Jicima Sticks, Beet Sticks, Kale, Mushrooms, Zucchini and Yellow squash. Students were encouraged to try the various foods and complete a quick information gathering survey. The results were overwhelming that this tasting was a success. Many students shared that this was the first time trying some of these foods and they thought that they would be great additions to the lunch options. #FHSFamilyFitness

Fenton Recognizes Board of Education Members - November 15th

Fenton High School District 100 joins other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools as November 15th is School Board Member Day. Nearly 6,000 people serve as elected school board members in Illinois.

Our school board members serve without monetary compensation to make public education and District 100 the best it can be for every child. Taking time out to say “thank you” is the least we can do, as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding and school facilities.
