    February is Career and Technical Education Month and each day this month we will be highlighting a Senior that has excelled in their career Pathway.  Join us in congratulating Chelsea Romozzi!
    • Chelsea is one of the most organized students you will meet!  In class, she has proven to be a take-charge person who is able to successfully develop plans and implement them on a regular basis. She is one of the few students I know that can use critical thinking skills to solve a problem and come to a solution on her own. Chelsea also continues to teach lessons to her peers in Education Academy I by facilitating conversations like a professional teacher.
    The Winning team for the Reading Chair for Churros Competition is.... Fiction Addiction!!!!

    Congratulations to the Girls Bowling Team for their 2nd place finish at the IHSA Regional on Saturday in a finish that came down to the last ball rolled by the winning team.  The Eagles averaged 173 for the day behind Regional Champion Ailyn Aguilar, who finished the day with  241 to capture the top spot.  Teammate Breanna Pimentel finished 2nd just 32 pins behind.  This 2nd place finish secures a spot in the Sectional Tournament this Saturday.  Good luck girls - keep it rolling!

    The Athletic Training Student Aide (ATSA) program is a volunteer program designed to provide an opportunity for high school students who wish to pursue a career in sports medicine and/or related fields or simply wanting to be involved in high school sports. The program is a commitment of at least one athletic season (Fall, Winter, Spring), 2-3 days/week after school.
