District 155 is excited to partner with local businesses, our feeder districts, and the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce for the “Made in Your Own Backyard” event. This open house event is a localized version of MFG Day, a national day of recognition to inspire a future generation of manufacturers. The event will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. and aims to increase awareness of unique products manufactured locally; and to educate parents and middle and high school students about the diverse manufacturing field and career opportunities our area. Together, parents and students will learn about the relevant coursework offered by our high schools and gain information about the career paths and tracks involved in being employed by one of these successful local companies.
Middle school students should register for the field trip based at their designated high school. Space is limited and the event requires registration, which will be on a first come, first serve basis. Click here to register.
