Today the students and staff took a break in between finals to say goodbye to the wonderful Ms. Korbel. Ms. Korbel has been with CD Andrew since August and covered TWO maternity leaves--what a rockstar!! We are so sad to see her go, but very excited for her and her new journey ahead. Thanks for all you've done for all of us Ms. Korbel!!! We will miss you!
Final Exams will take place on December 20th, 21st, & 22nd. These days are shortened days and we will work with your district to coordinate the appropriate transportation dismissal times.
Students will be dismissed at 11:30 AM each day of final exams. It is vital that your son/daughter take the final exams/participates in the final exam projects, in order to get a grade and credit for their semester of work in the class. If your family has any plans for the holiday that would result in your son/daughter not to attend school on any of those days, please contact Mrs. Granato-Wagner immediately. There is a procedure that takes place for these circumstances.
Student's first day back after winter break is a Tuesday, January 9th.
Good luck to our athletes at the game today!
During Mrs. Granato-Wagner and Ms. McGreal's English class this week we have been learning about Greek Gods. Today the students put on a play, "The Monster in the Cave". Bravo guys! We have a class full of actors.
Today the Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors made a trip to Brookhaven Marketplace in Tinley Park! While everyone had tons of fun, the students were tasked with finding outfits for: a job interview, a day at work and a casual day. Each student found their size and matched everything from their shirt to the shoes! After trying out clothes, the group moved to HomeGoods to find household products such as cooking utensils and bathroom items. We ended the day at Target on a hunt for all types of grocery items from peanut butter to yogurt! The students were able to eat together at a restaurant of their choosing before heading back to school. We are so proud of all of the students with their amazing community participation today!
Check out some of our math students enjoying learning through playing Kahoot today! The students worked in teams and were able to show off their skills!

Luke was also able to enjoy a delicious donut with other peers of Andrew High School who received this award ! We are SO proud of you, Luke!
The students had an awesome time hanging out after school to carve pumpkins with fellow peers from Andrew. The Hangout will meet again in November to decorate Festive Pines!!
