The TEAM 66 Education Foundation is proud to announce that it will be presenting Chicago’s legendary comedy theatre The Second City at Downers Grove High School at 7:00 PM on Saturday, February 28th.  This PG-13 performance of Second City’s Improv Allstars will feature an entirely improvised show based on audience suggestions. 

All profits from the show will go towards funding the TEAM 66’s vision to enhance community support and to expand resources that enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize opportunities for all students of Center Cass School.  In 2014, TEAM 66’s first year in operation, it awarded teaching grants to all 3 Center Cass schools and bringing The Second City to Downers Grove is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser for 2015.

Founded in Chicago in 1959, The Second City has become the premier training ground for the comedy world’s best and brightest and includes Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey amongst its alumni.  The Improv Allstars show will provide the audience with a chance to see comedy stars in the making along with absolutely hilarious satire and cutting-edge improvisation.

Tickets for the Improv Allstars make for a fun and unique Holiday Gift while supporting a great cause.  They will go on sale on Monday, December 1st at www.TEAM66ef.org.

School Board Elections

Although the school board election next April may seem a long way off, now is the time that candidates are considering their future plans. The Illinois State Board of Elections has established two critical deadlines:

  • The first day that candidates can lawfully circulate nominating petitions for signatures is September 23, 2014
  • The period for filing nominating papers runs from December 15 through December 22, 2014

In previous years, the responsibility of school board elections fell on local school officials. However, recent legislation significantly changed school election procedures.  Those responsibilities will now be handled by the county clerk or board of election commissioners.
