The 7th Grade Boys Volleyball Team got off to a good start this week, by posting a big victory in a thrilling match against Palos South. After losing the first game, Conrady bounced back in games 2 and 3 for a close-fought win at home. The Girls Basketball Teams take on Orland Junior High Thursday at Conrady.
Having just completed their Illinois Constitution tests, nearly 100 Conrady 6th graders got to see the seat of power up close and personal recently as they visited the state capital in Springfield. In addition to touring the Senate chambers in the Capitol building, students visited Abraham Lincoln’s home and the new Presidential Library and Museum. They also got a chance to pay their respects to the 16th president with a stop at Lincoln’s Tomb.
Senate Bill 16 (SB16) is a bill that passed the Senate last Spring, is in review in the House now, and is expected to be called for a vote this Fall. As currently written, SB16 will have a direct and negative impact on District 117.
Ready, set....go! One of my most favorite things about education is the annual fresh start with a clean slate and we're ready to launch into the 2014-2015 school year.
2014-2015 promises to be the best ever in the history of Conrady Junior High School. We've updated our new logo just about everywhere and the school is beaming with pride. The gymnasium is no longer lit by orange lights. We have a new parking lot in front of the school in addition to new windows and doors. All of these improvement were greatly needed.
