10/17/2014 Spanish Classes Plan Community Outreach Event
Students in Alexandra Wong's Spanish 4 Honors class and Ari Torres' Spanish 4 class at Oak Lawn Community High School are launching an exciting event for its Spanish-speaking Spartan families. As students study the second unit, titled "La familia y la comunidad," The Family and the Community, their focus shifts from international issues to the local community of Oak Lawn. A major component of this unit includes a community outreach event. This community outreach event is scheduled for the evening of November 6, 2014. The students will execute this event, and its purpose is to foster a relationship between Oak Lawn Community High School and the Spanish-speaking parent community of Oak Lawn. This will be a wonderful opportunity for students to use the target language with heritage speakers in a safe and fun environment. All parents of the students organizing the event are also invited to participate.
10/17/2014 Persistence Key on a Day of Record Cold Temperatures
The 2014 Rayjus Outdoors – Oak Lawn High School Bass tournament was a character building experience. With record cold temperatures, rain, snow, and wind gusts up to 30mph, anglers were put to the test on the Kankakee and Des Plaines Rivers! In the end, it was Sean Cook of Joliet Central High School who won big with a bag of four smallmouth weighing 6.81lbs. "Two inches of rain the day before and a major cold front with high winds made for some extreme conditions and tough fishing. Rapala crank baits paid off again for me," said Cook. The Oak Lawn Community High School Spartan Fishing Team duo of John Neubauer and Andy Jensen fished nearly six hours without a single bite.
