Final day for Homewood’s Millennium School is June 7

District 153 will mark the last day of Millennium School on Tuesday, June 7.

District officials estimate 3,000 children in fifth and sixth grades have passed through Millennium the past 13 years. The student council selected the school’s name. Millennium’s fifth graders will now be students at Churchill School and the sixth graders will become James Hart School students.

“Change is good. We will roll with it,” said fifth grade teacher Karen Gnatt who will relocate to Churchill School in the fall.

It’s a bittersweet ending for the school . . .
