“The time is coming when you have to pick a side.”  The Media Center invites all students and staff to join us in the wizarding world for our annual movie field trip to see new awesome blockbuster movie The Crimes of Grindelwald  after school on Tuesday, November 20.  $10 gets a movie ticket, popcorn and bus ride.  Permission forms are available in the Media Center.  Get yours today.  Signed forms are due Monday at 3pm.  The future will change forever… make sure you’re there to witness it!      



No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone.  Student Council is hosting its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on November 19.  With advisories, Spartans are asked to collect 15 items to create a meal basket.  Those advisories creating three or more meal baskets will have an after school pizza party from Student Council.  All donations go to two local food pantries.  Please consider participating to help your neighbors in need.       


Need Service Hours?  There are some great opportunities this weekend and next!

Help out at the St. Gerald Craft Fair this weekend, or get outdoors in one of the Cook County Forest Preserves.  Help provide at Happy Thanksgiving at the Garden Chalet Community Thanksgiving meal next Thursday, Nov. 22.  Lots of volunteers are still needed for the Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce Shop Oak Lawn event next Saturday, Nov. 24.

Information about these volunteer opportunities and more are available on the Service Learning calendar, accessible on the OLCHS webpage and/or in your iTunes U Seminar course.
