The students and staff at Andrew High School had a BLAST celebrating their school spirit during Homecoming week! Our students had the opportunity to experience new and exciting ways to interact with their school community! Bingo and a DJ during lunch, an alumni band performance, a Pep Rally in the Stadium with the entire student body, and some of our students even attended the Homecoming Dance!
August 25th (Wednesday) is Back to School Night for Andrew HS CD!
The building is requesting only 1 parent attend (students preferred not to attend). The building is requiring masks for this event. This event will give a quick glimpse of the classes/program; however for individualized discussion of concerns or questions, please email your case manager to set up a phone call.
The Classic CD Program (Case Managers: Mrs. Lavery, Mr. Bishop, Ms. Seper) will be following the building abbreviated schedule, so a parent will be able to go through each class.
The DISCOVERS classrooms (161- Mrs. Covault & Mrs. Waddic; 165: Mrs. Zagorski & Mrs. O'Brien) will be doing a presentation on their classroom.
If you have questions, please email your case manager.
Not all graduates are included. We wish ALL of our graduates Congratulations. We are so proud of you all!
The Discovers Team had the opportunity to visit the 2021 Graduates at their homes with a Graduation Car Parade! It was so nice to see some of the students that have been Remote this year and to acknowledge all of the hard work and accomplishments our Seniors have made during their time here at Andrew High School, in the Discovers CD Program. We wish you the best in all of your future endeavors. You have made our lives better by being in it!
This year's special games event is one for the books! Not only because it is the LAST special games hosted by Lincoln-Way, but because it was hosted virtually!
Students focused on reading poems about the marvels of nature in our world, such as the Himalayas, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Aurora Borealis. After the reading and discussion of poetry, they each wrote an Acrostic and an Alliteration poem.
An acrostic poem is a poem where certain letters in each line spell out a word or phrase. Typically, the first letters of each line are used to spell the message.
An alliteration poem has the repetition of initial stressed, consonant sounds in a series of words within a phrase or verse line.
See a poem from each student in the slideshow below.
The students in the High School Classic Sociology class embarked on a 3+ week unit on African American history, in addition to a focus on how African Americans have contributed and shaped the United States.
The following is a glimpse of the areas studied that surrounded this unit:
Through the unit the students participated in multi media project assignments including, generating a poem, finding a song/artist by an African American, watched videos, created collages of how they wish to contribute to a more peaceful and unified society. The students ended the unit with a research project, in which they studied and wrote about 3 great African Americans. The projects were presented to the group.
The unit was a celebration of people and truly represented how we should learn and celebrate Black History everyday, not just in February.
