9/26/2014 Reduced PACE Bus Fares via Ventra System
The Ventra System (reduced student fares on PACE buses) has started a new program to discount student fares. New students to the district who have never had a Ventra card (or lost their old Ventra card) need the “New-Replace Ventra” form. Parents must fill out the form and mail $2.00 to Ventra. Ventra then sends the card to the school and we deliver it to the student. The student must then take the card home and a parent/guardian must register the student card with Ventra. Money can then be loaded onto the card. Returning students to the district, or students who purchased a Ventra card last school year, need the "Renew Ventra" form. That form needs to be filled out with the students name and card number and returned to the Business Office 123 where it is scanned and emailed to Ventra. This verifies the student is enrolled for the 2014-2015 school year.
9/23/2014 Szaflarski Named to All-Tourney Team
When the boys’ soccer team started play in the Windy City Classic, it knew the action would give a solid read on what lies ahead for the season as a whole. The Spartans found out that some young talent is developing into a leadership role. That was exemplified when sophomore co-captain Michal Szflarski earned recognition as an All-Tournament Team selection.The impressive part is that the competitive tournament featured 32 teams, and Szflarski, who is a midfielder, rose to the top of the class against this stiff competition. Szflarski recorded a goal and an assist. And since the tournament, he has added another goal to his season total. Overall, the Spartans are 3-3 on the season.
