2/2/2016 Baseball's Blake Takes Home Trophy as 2016 Ultimate Spartan
Last Saturday night more than 300 students came to watch the softball program crown its fourth Ultimate Spartan. And Liam Blake, Vinnie Caprio, Miles O’Brien, Alexander Kenny, Jorge Ramirez and Lucas Palacios did not disappoint the crowd. When it was all over and the votes were counted, it was the closest judging in history. Miles O’Brien took third place, Lucas Palacios came in second and baseball player Liam Blake was named the 2016 Ultimate Spartan. With the help of these guys, the softball players and the Oak Lawn Community High School staff, the softball program made more than $1,100 to help purchase necessary equipment for the upcoming season.
1/31/2016 Residency Validation for 2016-17
As previously announced, OLCHS will collect residency documentation beginning in February for the 2016-17 school year. In past years, the documents were collected in the summer as part of the back-to-school registration process. The intent of the change is to speed up the summer registration process and to reduce the need for parents to visit campus during the August iPad/textbook pick-up days. Families are expected to have their residency documentation submitted by June 20, 2016. We are still finalizing the residency documentation collection process but we plan to have the process available within the next two weeks. Please check the website for updates and begin preparing to submit your documentation. Although families will be encouraged to submit their documentation electronically, the process will also allow documentation to be submitted via email, fax, U.S. Mail, or by dropping off copies of the required paperwork at the school.
1/29/2016 SpARTan Art Gallery to Debut Colorful Use for the iPad
The new popularity of adult coloring books shows no signs of slowing down. Now, Spartans have joined in the creative fun! Students in Mrs. Jamie Atkus’s ILRP Technology and Mrs. Jennifer Clark¹s Extreme Art classes delved into the coloring craze by creating their own unique works of art without traditional crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Using the Colorfly app on their iPads, students "colored" a variety of detailed designs using only their finger on the tablet. Art pieces included intricate pictures ranging from flowers to kittens to replicas of Edvard Munch's The Scream.
