GENERAL INFORMATION:

"The speech team finished its regular season at Rock Falls this past weekend, and walked away as the tournament champions! Special recognition goes to Samantha Skinner for placing first in Humorous Interpretation and Mazah Sherif for placing first in Extemporaneous Speaking and Original Oratory. We ended the season with one third place finish, two second place finishes, and two tournament championships! Cheer us on as we head to the IHSA Regionals in two weeks!"

"There will be an informational meeting for anybody interested in being a part of the cast and crew of our spring musical, Anastasia, on Thursday at 3:15 in the auditorium. We need a lot of girls AND boys as this musical presents the opportunity to feature a large group of individuals. We are also utilizing our new rear projection system, which will allow us to use the original Broadway projections for our set. This is sure to be an incredible experience! If you would like more information before Thursday, head to 224E and scan the appropriate QR code on the window. If you will need to take the late bus Thursday then let Mr. Greer know as soon as possible so he can communicate with transportation. We hope to see you Thursday after school!"
