Our School


Thank you for visiting our web site, we hope that your visit is enjoyable and informative.  Henry  Puffer School has enjoyed a long, rich history of educating children in the northwest corner of the  Downers Grove Community for more than 100 years.  Our staff is dedicated to providing all of our  students the  educational program required to allow them to become  contributing members of the  community.  In addition to their core and content area studies, a number of enrichment  opportunities  are available to round out the overall experience available to our students.

Another incredibly important part of our school is the Puffer-Hefty PTA.  These adult volunteers spend countless   hours working on behalf of and along with our students. From carving pumpkins, providing school assemblies, classroom parties, to lobbying legislators on behalf of children, our PTA has been an integral part of developing  our youth for more than 80 years.  Please consider joining our PTA and getting involved with this very special group.
Lastly, the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 is an entity separate from our school district that works solely for the benefit of District 58 students.  They have generated approximately $500,000 over the past several years that has in turn been funneled to our children in the form of grant programs.  With the state of education funding, these extra dollars provide resources that our classrooms would otherwise not receive.

Thank you again for stopping by our web site.  Please feel free to call and arrange an appointment to visit our school should you be new to the area or would like to contribute in some way to our successes.  Have a fantastic year; feel free to contact me at any time.
