Mr. Chris Kolowski, Principal
Paul L. Bolin School is located at 428 Arnold Road in East Peoria, Illinois. Bolin currently serves about 200 students in third, fourth, and fifth grades. In addition, Bolin houses one gifted classroom that serves fifth grade students from across the district. Bolin is sister school to Neil Armstrong School, a kindergarten to second grade building. Upon promotion from Bolin, students attend Central Junior High School for sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.
We encourage parents to visit our school. However, in order to avoid classroom distractions and "bad timing", we ask that parents observe the following guidelines when visiting.
1. Do not accompany your child/children to their classroom(s) in the morning. Instead, allow students to independently make their way to class. This will support teachers and ease the home-to-school transition for students.
2. Make an appointment directly with your child's teacher before visiting the classroom.
3. Feel free to visit during lunchtime anytime! We ask that you meet your son or daughter in the lunchroom. It is not necessary to make an appointment when you visit for lunch, but if you plan to purchase a school lunch, please let us know.
