Home and School Organization


Greetings and welcome to the new school year! It’s so nice to see students and teachers back in our District’s classrooms this year, and I look forward to a great year ahead of us. 

Lisle’s Home and School Organization (HSO) is made up of four units. The HSO Council facilitates collaboration with individual school units at the elementary, junior high and high school levels. School unit presidents and council delegates are part of the HSO Council and report the business of the council meetings back to each unit. The District Superintendent and a member of the School Board attend each HSO Council meeting and inform the council of any relevant information that pertains to the school district. Everyone is invited to attend HSO Council meetings and it’s a great way to stay informed.  We are welcoming new people to join the Council Board for THIS SCHOOL YEAR.  No experience needed, just an interest in students, teachers, and community!

The HSO Council’s primary fundraising focus is to raise money for the Scholarship Award Program. The individual HSO units also contribute monies towards these scholarships. The total amount awarded to Lisle graduating seniors since 1964 is over $500,000! The Class of 2023 received $14,000 given to 17 graduating students, each receiving a scholarship of $825.
