Principal's Message

Angela Craig

Principal of Turner Elementary School
Dear Parents and Community,
As principal of Delia M. Turner Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great school year.  We are all excited and looking forward to having the students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  At Turner Elementary, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic and social abilities.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current levels of performance, to guide instruction and to set goals for growth and improvement.
It is an honor to serve as the Principal of Delia M. Turner Elementary School and a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.  We have an open door policy and welcome any opportunity to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me at 708 388 7205 or at
I want to personally invite you to attend our Open House on Thursday, September 12 from 4:30-6:30 PM. This will be a great time to strengthen our Turner community, meet teachers and other families, and learn about the upcoming school year. We will begin the evening with a short school-wide meeting and from there you will have the opportunity to visit with your child’s teacher. Our school goal is to see 85% of our families at this event. I hope to see each of you there!
Warmest Regards,  
Angela Craig
