The comedy spoof “The Aliens are Coming! The Aliens are Coming!” landed at Conrady this weekend to the delight of local audience members. The Tim Kelly spoof of extraterrestrial encounters revolves around a UFO fan convention at the Meteorite Inn. The shabby desert hotel is near the site of a rumored alien encounter and draws laughs from a host of unusual guests, including nosy news types, law enforcement and secretive military men—and maybe some actual aliens. Under the direction of drama teacher Zivi Silgalis, the cast romped through the 90-minute production with pomp and poise. Congratulations to all who participated.
Conrady’s Boys and Girls Soccer Teams each captured their SWIC conference championships Wednesday with thrilling victories at Stagg High School. The Boys’ team trailed 1-0 at the half, but came back against Liberty Junior High to win 2-1. The Girls’ team also claimed the championship with a 4-2 win over rival Palos South. Way to go Jaguars!

A mother goose recently set up house at Conrady. That was great for students and staff who watched and waited for the eggs to hatch in the school’s atrium. It wasn’t so great for the geese, who had no way to exit their confined space. After a call to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources resulted in an OK to move the birds, Conrady’s science teachers Tuesday shepherded the flock out of the building. After a few wrong turns, Mother Goose and her five goslings made their way to greener (and hopefully more open) pastures.
It was a busy day for Conrady students and staff Friday as a Spring Assembly saw performances from Conrady’s band, choir and dance teams. The Annual Volleyball Bash after school featured some terrific play, with the 8th Grade Girls Team defeating the 8th Grade Boys Team in an exciting three-game match. Following a Tug-of-War contest between students and staff, the Girls Team then defeated a team of Conrady teachers to complete the volleyball sweep. Congratulations to all who took part!
Conrady's 2015-2016 School Year marks 50 years of education sporting two newly renovated hallways and restrooms as a part of a multi-year project. This renovation has been long needed in improving the learning conditions of a very worn and outdated facility.
