The Media Center hosted its 5th Annual Family Reading Night on November 30, 2017. To celebrate the 20th publication anniversary of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the event centered around the world and characters of the Harry Potter books. Over 60 students, staff members, parents, alumni, and community members (all members of the Spartan Family!) attended the event.
#HarryPotter20 Fest was a collaboration between numerous parties. Pieces of original artwork were created by freshman Diana Ochoa and students in Mrs. Jennifer Clark's Studio Art class. Students in Mrs. Amy Cryan's Culinary Arts classes created tasty delicacies, such as chocolate frogs, broom-shaped appetizers and a sweet concoction made with cream soda and brown sugar called butter beer. Student chefs Alyssa Mellas, Alex Serna, and Jessica Wons served at the event.
Izabel Gronski, Oak Lawn Public Library Teen Librarian told fortunes while posing as Professor Trelawney. One of the highlights was the green screen room where participants took realistic photos and videos at Hogwarts. Students Emma O'Malley Galvan, Jake Majerczyk, Saad Mulhelm, Michael Mueller, and James Walsh, ran the green screen room.
