Senior Ryan Kirby advanced to day two of state and finished 12th overall, making the all-state team.
2/26/2015 PARCC Testing -Week of March 9
During the 2014-15 school year, public schools in Illinois are required to continue assessing students for accountability as mandated by the United States Department of Education. In previous years OLCHS was required to give the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE) to all students in Grade 11. This test has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). The PARCC assessment will measure student proficiency relative to the Common Core State Standards. This year's PARCC exam will only be given to students enrolled in specific courses. Students enrolled in English 1, LRP English I and Honors English I will be given the ELA I PARCC assessment. Similarly, students enrolled in Algebra I, Algebra Block, LRP Algebra Block, and Honors Algebra will be administered the Algebra I PARCC assessment.

Family traditions come in many shapes, sizes and forms. Many of our beloved traditions center around the holidays – such as baking Christmas cookies, having an Easter egg hunt or watching fireworks together on the Fourth of July. However, some traditions need no special holiday – they make magic happen all year long and can span many generations. Recently, I was invited to take a look at a very unique hand-stitched quilt. It was started in 1936 by a woman named Ina Thompson from Greeley, Colorado. Thompson had a dream of creating a quilt depicting the official state birds and flowers of the first 48 states. (Alaska and Hawaii didn't become states until 1959.)
