2/28/2015 Spartans Narrowly Miss Conference Championship Title but Retain Tossup Leader
In the past two weeks, the Scholastic Bowl team has represented OLCHS in a bright light. Last week, the two teams combined for a 5-1 record, and were paced by Stephanie Fetzer, Brea Brennan and Danielle Allen with 1 tossup, Ayman Salah and Ryan Alsot with 2 tossups, Elizabeth Gonzalez and Allie Templin with 3 tossups, Ryan Quinn with 7 tossups, Jade Ryerson and Gina Snyder with 14 tossups and Trevor Spreadbury with 21 tossups. The Spartans rode this wave of success into this week's conference meet, and did not disappoint. The JV team earned a 3rd place finish in conference, with All-Conference accolades going to Jade Ryerson and Gina Snyder. The varsity team fought their way into the championship match, and in an absolute thriller, the match came down to the very last bonus question, with our Spartans narrowly missing first place. This was our varsity team's best finish in years, and they accomplished this without having any seniors on the roster.
2/27/2015 Bowlers Receive Fame for their Frames
Coach Schillo and the boys’ bowling team were recognized last week at the Board meeting for their tremendous season. Not only did the boys place first at the Oak Lawn Invite, the Brother Rice Invite and the Oak Forest Invite, the team also won the “trifecta” – Conference Champs, Regional Champs, and Sectional Champs. 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 This test has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).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.
