CD Classic celebrates student achievement each year. Students are presented awards for participation in extra curricular activities, demonstrating certain characteristics, and for displaying skills in particular subjects. Seniors then give speeches. We are so proud of our students and everything they have accomplished during the 2021-2022 school year! Best of luck, seniors!
Mrs. Lavery & Mrs. Granato-Wagner's English class, along with Ms. Reyes & Mrs. Horan (Para educators) have been reading the "I Survived The Great Chicago Fire, 1871" novel by Laruen Tarshis. It is a historical nonfiction story, which narrates through a story what it may have been like to be in Chicago during the blaze of flames. In our current chapter, a group of antagonistic characters used the fire as a reason to loot homes. The class learned in their pre-reading about the laws of theft. As a post-reading event, our Andrew High School Resource Officer, Officer London, came to speak to the class about his job, the law, and differentiating the types of theft. The students answered questions, asked questions, and provided insightful comments. It was a wonderful way that the novel's content connected to real world knowledge. Thank you Officer London for being a part of our Andrew High School & CD Family!
Students presented their food web projects, created their own donut shops, and cheered on our basketball team!
Andrew High School had a door decorating contest, and room 204 won- congratulations! The fun didn’t stop there. We celebrated PBIS with a trip to Gym Kinetics. See us shine with our movement skills!
CD Classic really had fun making elephant toothpaste during our PBIS booster. It was a great demonstration of our emotions at varying levels.
Mrs. Covault's classroom (Room 165) participated in a Life Skills lesson- Music for Recreation. The class learned how to create percussion with different body parts and instruments. It was amazing to see what these students could do! We created instruments and learned new ways to use our hands, feet and bodies to make sounds and develop rhythms. It was a new and exciting way to learn and follow directions. We also took advantage of the sunny weather in early December.
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!
