12/16/2014 Oak Lawn Baseball Program Set to Coach Young Players
The Baseball program is continuing to reach out to area players and help develop their skills with its US Baseball Academy training program this winter. Running on Sundays in January and February, the program will teach skills to players ranging from grades 1 to 12. This national baseball training program will be locally operated by Oak Lawn head coach Bill Gerny and the Spartan coaching staff. The training program is a unique concept that provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, fielding/baserunning, catching training programs and instruction by some of the area's best coaches. The cost of six weeks of instruction is only $99 and boasts a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1. Participants are required to register in advance for the program which runs January 4, 11, 18, 25 and February 8 and 15.
12/12/2014 Spartans Join the Mockingjay!
Over 45 Spartans (students & staff alike) attended the Media Centerís after school fieldtrip to see the movie Mockingjay at AMC Chicago Ridge. Mockingjay is the third installment in the outrageously popular Hunger Games trilogy, an exciting young adult novel series by Suzanne Collins. Students enjoyed a pizza party and trivia in the Media Center beforehand. Some students even arrived dressed in their favorite Hunger Games gear! Every Tuesday before Thanksgiving the Media Center takes an after school fieldtrip to see a film based on a popular book. Past events included trips to see Harry Potter and all the Twilight movies. With Mockingjay's cliffhanger ending, no doubt the group will be back to see Part II in 2015! Event chaperones were Mrs. Jamie Atkus, Ms. Eileen Jones, Mrs. Kathy Massura, Mrs. Joanie McCaw, Mrs. Kate Mellone, Mrs. Jessica Nickless, Mrs. Jennifer Sidlow, and retired OLCHS staff members Mrs. Dorothy Michels and Ms. Cathy Morrin.
