This morning there was a suspicious black car we believe to be a Lincoln possibly taking photos of students as they entered school. The car was parked off of school property. Please take extra caution and keep a watchful eye. Inform our Resource Officer Jon Paret or the Vernon Hills Police Department if you see anything out of the ordinary.

Eighth grade STEM students have been learning how to code the Sphero robotic balls. After much practice, they are now working on their own projects demonstrating their knowledge of Oval coding language. The boys are coding Sphero to go through a maze, while the girls chose to code Sphero to “release all the animals in their cages” (knock over the cups) so the poachers cannot get them and send them away to zoos!
On September 8, the eighth-grade students in Ms. Balmes’ and Mr. McKenzie’s Social Studies classes learned about the immigrant experience by role playing scenes representing the process that took place on Ellis Island.
