8/4/2014 SouthtownStar Newspaper features OLCHS Nick Minnella
If everything goes as planned, at this time next summer Nick Minnella will be volunteering in Bolivia. Itís been a dream of his to give back to a country in need. As president of Cross Countries, a volunteer group that started with a group of runners who wanted to give back, the senior-to-be at Oak Lawn Community High School is working to help the group raise $60,000, some of which will fund the trip to Bolivia and the rest of which will help fund a hospital there. So far, the group has raised $17,000, so Minnella has his work cut out for him. The organization, which is now open to anyone interested in giving back, has been hosting fundraisers every couple of months since the spring. Motorists may have seen members of the group at major intersections throughout the summer asking for donations.
7/28/2014 TI-84 Calculators Required
Beginning this school year, all students, freshman through seniors, enrolled in a math class are required to have a graphing calculator. The school recommends the Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus graphing calculator. This change is prompted by the ongoing implementation of the Common Core State Standards and the upcoming PARCC Assessment. The calculators can be purchased from any major retailer, and most have specials or deals they run before back-to-school. Students can get more information from their Math teacher at the beginning of the school year or by contacting Assistant Principal Jeana Lietz at 708/741-5616 or Division Chairperson David Johnson at 708/741-5649.
