12/7/2013 Operation Santa Claus Tradition Continues
Mrs. Ellen Kruger, a math teacher, will continue her school-wide tradition of Operation Santa Claus. 2013 marks the ninth year of Operation Santa Claus at OLCHS. From December 2 to December 13, Christmas trees are located in the main office by the mailboxes, the faculty café, and the student cafeteria. They are loaded with candy cane ornaments. Each candy cane has a gift tag identifying a person, his/her age, and desired wish or need. Wishes often include clothing, gym shoes, small appliances, gas cards, grocery cards, musical instruments or toys. Students and staff can choose as many candy canes as they wish and purchase the gifts. Some classes are even collecting spare change to assist in purchasing the supplies and gifts. One Oak Lawn family needs two twin beds or one full bed; gently used, clean beds are acceptable. Wrapping paper, bags, gift boxes, ribbons and gift tags are also needed and can be dropped off in room 215.
12/6/2013 Girls Basketball Aims to Help Great Cause With Pink Out Game
As the holiday season is upon us, the Oak Lawn girls basketball team is continuing to give its support to a worthwhile cause. Thursday, December 12, the Spartans will host their annual Pink Out Game to help raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. The annual Pink Out event will feature the girls varsity, sophomore and freshmen teams along with the freshmen boys. The program will be selling T-shirts for $10 each. This year it is truly a personal endeavor as the proceeds will go to head coach Janet Meyers' sister Mary Haubenreiser, who was diagnosed in October with Stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer. It is a rare form of breast cancer that spreads quickly. "Mary worked as a teacher assistant at OLCHS for several years and now is the Director of Students at Excel Academy of Englewood," Meyers said. "She is a single mom with five-year-old twins. Please consider supporting this event. It will be an exciting night of basketball for a great cause."
