D204 to Purchase Building
The District 204 school board voted to approve the purchase of a building at 1250 Shore Road in Naperville. The 14,800 square foot industrial building will serve as a new home for the district’s Operations and Maintenance Department, which currently uses Wheatland School. The $1.8 million deal will free Wheatland up for educational uses. The district expects it could take ownership of the building by February 2019.
New Board Member
Also at the meeting, new District 204 School Board Member Natasha Grover swore in and took a seat with the board for the first time. The board unanimously voted to appoint her to fill the vacant seat left by Lori Price, who resigned in September when she felt she no longer had time to dedicate to the position. Grover has been an engaged volunteer in District 204, and currently has children who attend district schools.

The Naperville middle school girls volleyball championships were held over the weekend. The seventh grade A game was a close match between Gregory Middle School and Jefferson Junior High, with the Patriots of Jefferson coming out with the win in two sets over the Pioneers. The seventh grade AA game was between Jefferson and Scullen Middle School. Each team won one of the first two sets, but Scullen Sharks took the AA title with a third set victory to win.
The eighth grade A game was another three set battle. The host Kennedy Eagles took the first set, but the Crone Panthers tied things up by winning set two. Kennedy was able to rally and win the championship in the third set in front of the home crowd. The eighth grade AA game again featured Jefferson taking on the top seeded Granger Grizzlies. After the Patriots took the opening set, Granger came a couple points from tying the match. But Jefferson was able to hang on and win the AA championship in straight sets. Congratulations to all the teams on a great season.
