  • Cultural food on the lunch lines on Friday's
  • Artwork and artists in your daily bulletin

Dusable Museum and Field trip, including show of Langston Hughes

On Tuesday, Mr Ongtengco and Ms. Brock chaperoned 22 students to the DuSable Museum to the Art of Langston Hughes exhibit. The exhibit showed Langston Hughes beyond the key figure he was in the Harlem Renaissance. His pride in the African-American identity and its diverse culture was shown in his work. Students experienced five exceptional poems, plays and stories all by this extraordinary artist.

Road to State

Winter Sports Update

The Boys Swim Team members competing at the State Swim Championships this past weekend enjoyed and learned from swimming against the best.  Nik Fischer’s preliminary swim on Friday was fast and advanced him to Saturday’s Finals in the 100 Yard Backstroke. Nik finished in 12th place earning All-State honors.  Fenton’s Medley Relay of Fischer, Conrad Oberski, Matt Janovsky and Lucas Feddersen swam fast but not fast enough to advance to the finals, with Friday’s swim capping a fine season.  Go Bison!

And Spring Update

Hard to believe - spring is right around the corner

Spring sports have begun or will be starting very soon. Let’s hope for some warm weather.
