Stars of the Week

Stars of the Week for the 2022-23 school year will open later this fall.

We are excited to bring our Stars of the Week program to District 200! One classroom teacher and one staff member per building will be named Stars of the Week.

Distinguished Educator Awards are nominations from the entire community, with a committee-reviewed award process. Stars of the Week nominations are from colleagues in a school building — an opportunity to honor inspiring colleagues at each D200 school.

Nominations are due mid-December. D200 employees may nominate one classroom teacher and one staff member from their building. There is a section on the form for each nomination category. Any teacher/staff member is eligible for nomination if currently employed by District 200, but self-nominations will not be considered.

The Stars of the Week and their principals will be notified in January, and will be recognized and celebrated throughout the semester on the Foundation’s social media platforms, via email, and during the Celebrate Our Stars event in early May at Wheaton North High School.

Here is the quick & easy nomination form. Please let us know who in your school should be recognized for efforts that are unique and positive, above and beyond, and inspiring/encouraging.

If you have any questions, please contact us at We look forward to receiving the nominations of those colleagues who have inspired and encouraged you, and then celebrating their efforts as Stars of the Week.
