Members of the STEM Club visited Argonne National Laboratory to learn about the impact of the growing urban areas. 10/28/2014 STEM Club Visits Argonne National Laboratory
The STEM Club values field trips that provide real world experiences for its members. On Thursday, October 16, twenty-seven students ranging from freshmen to seniors attended the first of these field trips at an academic lecture at Argonne National Laboratory entitled “Computation, Big Data, and the Future of Cities.” This after-hours field trip inspired students to learn more about the concept of research and the power that data has on social policy. The lecture, given by Charlie Catlett, Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, described how the world’s urban areas will double over the next several decades. This increase brings challenges of climate change, water, energy and food security. The STEM club aims to go on field trips on a quarterly basis.

The Foreign Language Department will carry on its tradition of El Dia de los Muertos. El Dia de los Muertos means Day of the Dead, a Latin American tradition where families honor and welcome back their loved ones who have passed away. During this time, people create altars, placing items that are a representation (or simply items they enjoyed) of those who have passed. The celebration will begin October 28th and the altars will be displayed until November 4th. Students in foreign language classes have been putting together artifacts and decorations to place in the Media Center to honor those they miss. The foreign language department invites all faculty, staff and students to participate in this tradition. To honor someone who has passed, please bring their picture in a picture frame along with a few items that represent them in a clear bag with your name on each item by Monday, October 27.
Junior Aleksandra Gronski 10/24/2014 Teen Serves on Public Library Board
Junior Aleksandra “Ola” Gronski represents her village and OLCHS by serving as an active member of the Oak Lawn Public Library Teen Advisory Board. TAB, as the board is commonly called, meets monthly. The group focuses on gathering thoughtful input from local teens to improve programming and selections at the public library. Some of the topics routinely covered are ways to enhance book discussions and movie nights, as well as how to garner more teenager involvement in the local library. In addition to brainstorming helpful information, Ola's leadership position has its perks. At a recent event hosted by the Oak Lawn Public Library, Ola met "extras" from the blockbuster movie Divergent, which was based on the young adult novel by Veronica Roth and filmed in Chicago.
