Community Consolidated School District 21 serves nearly 7,000 students in 13 schools across 6 communities in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Tarkington Elementary School serves students through 5th grade. School starts at 9:00 AM and ends at 3:30 PM daily.


Makerspace is a club which provides hands-on opportunities for all students to investigate the world of science, technology, art, engineering and math by solving complex problems and finding solutions while working together to create, explore, unravel, collaborate and communicate.

This club will meet several times a year during lunch. At this time, we are still looking for volunteers to help out with stations for this club to be successful.There may be large numbers of students participating and management of materials and supervision is needed. Please contact [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering or if you have any questions.

We are in need of supplies for Makerspace.  Please check out this LINK to see if you can donate any supplies. Thank you!
