Our Featured Programs

iRead Program

For over 20 years, the Foundation has sponsored a fundraiser that fosters our preschool and elementary school students’ love of reading.

The readers and fundraisers from every school are recognized with prizes and the school with the most minutes read per student is awarded the highly coveted iRead trophy. iRead is typically held in January following winter break.

Kids Go Classic

The annual Kids Go Classic Concert is sponsored by Ravinia’s Reach*Teach*Play Education Programs in partnership with the 112 Education Foundation.

Each summer, through the Foundation, Ravinia provides tickets for D112 students and their families to attend a classical concert featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on the lawn.

Foundation Grants

The 112 Education Foundation provides District 112 teachers semi-annual Foundation Grants to support creative and innovative enrichment projects. Grant cycles occur in April and October.

Think of Foundation Grants as District 112’s education laboratory, an opportunity to explore ideas, methods, and materials that will enhance student experiences in school.
