You might not think that stunt riding on a BMX bike would be the path to success, but it proved just the right vehicle for Matt Wilhelm. The X Games star and motivational speaker visited Conrady Monday to share his inspirational story, which included being bullied as a student. His tale of perseverance drew as much applause as his stunt riding. Not to be outdone, the National Theatre for Children also entertained the crowd with an educational program about energy conservation during the school-wide assembly.
Conrady’s Boys Volleyball teams proved too much to handle Thursday as they recorded twin victories in straight-set victories against Prairie View. That extends the 8th Grade Team’s win streak to 10 in a row. The Girls’ 7th Grade Volleyball team also picked up a well-deserved win in beating Prairie View on their home court. The teams’ next matches are Nov. 30 against Palos South.
Conrady’s 8th Grade Girls Basketball team ran their win streak to seven in a row this week in a thrilling match against Century Junior High that came down to the last minute of play. The see-saw affair saw both teams playing their best in the 4th quarter, before a couple of key free throws and basket sealed the win for the Lady Jaguars. Meanwhile, the 8th Grade Boys Volleyball team kept its win streak alive as well, topping Century in Orland Park for their 9th win. Keep it going, Jaguars.
Conrady’s 7th and 8th Grade Boys Volleyball teams notched key victories Tuesday against Evergreen Park Junior High. Both matches were tight contests that went three games before the Jaguars emerged victorious. At Evergreen, the Girls 8th Grade Basketball Team ran their win streak to three in a row.
Conrady’s Fourth Annual Family Read Night brought a record crowd of more than 400 students and parents recently. Conrady students, and many of their school-age siblings, dressed in colorful costumes and took part in a variety of reading and language arts-themed games hosted by Conrady teachers. Amid Halloween-decorated classes, hallways, and even a courtyard (thanks to Art Teacher Ms. Brudzisz and her helpful minions), students got the chance to shop at the PTSA-sponsored Book Fair and take part in many fun activities tied to reading. Among the many games and activities were a science-themed Magic Potions event in which students read a story and followed a spooky recipe, Baseball Reader’s Theater, a Western-themed context clues game, Carnival figurative language and Mario Bros. Scavenger Hunt. Visitors also got a chance to fill out Mad Libs cards at an Indiana Jones-themed Social Studies class, while a Rotten Apples to Apples-themed class put the popular adjective-noun game in a scary new context. The night even provided opportunities for music and reflection as Conrady’s choir entertained visitors at a coolly ghoully decorated Dead Poets Graveyard. Conrady students who attended were also entered into a raffle for a host of prizes. Kudos again to the Reading Intervention and Language Arts crew for their efforts on a fun-filled night.
Conrady’s 7th and 8th Grade Boys Volleyball teams started the season with a pair of wins against Orland Junior High this week. Both squads saw the lead see-saw back and forth for awhile, but the Jaguars hung tough and prevailed in two games for both contests. The Boys’ next match is Thursday against Jerling at home. The Girls Basketball schedule has Conrady hosting its first home game next Tuesday against Oak Lawn Hometown. Come on out to cheer the teams on.
Having just completed their Illinois Constitution unit, more than 120 Conrady 6th graders got to see the seat of power up close and personal recently as they visited the state capital in Springfield. In addition to touring the Senate and House chambers in the Capitol building, students visited Abraham Lincoln’s home and burial place, as well as the Presidential Library and Museum. They also got a chance to visit the Illinois Military Museum, where students learned of the many contributions that Illinois servicemen and women have made through the years.
Conrady's 2015-2016 School Year marks 50 years of education sporting two newly renovated hallways and restrooms as a part of a multi-year project. This renovation has been long needed in improving the learning conditions of a very worn and outdated facility.
