Congratulations to 8th grader Jessica Wenc! The Jazz Band trumpet player recently got the chance to play in the Northshore Concert Band’s lifetime of music event, held recently at Northwestern University. Each year this prestigious concert band invites talented junior high and middle school students to participate in their February concert. Jessica was chosen this year and did a fabulous job.
Conrady’s 7th and 8th Grade boys’ basketball teams picked up several more wins this week, notching victories against the Grissom Patriots on Tuesday and defeating the Tinley Twisters on Friday night. Friday’s games saw the 7th graders get off to a slow start before their defense caused a stream of turnovers that resulted in a string of easy baskets. The 8th graders earned a hard-fought victory in a close matchup that saw the Jaguars seal the win by making their free throws at the end. Meanwhile, the 7th and 8th Grade girls’ volleyball teams continued to improve, with the 8th graders picking up a win against Prairie View on Wednesday.
Graduation will be held the evening of June 4 unless more weather days are taken.
Congratulations to 7th grader David Wojas, Conrady’s 2019 National Geographic Bee champion! Competition was held recently in Conrady’s 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies classes. Students were asked a host of geography-themed questions in a round-robin format. Classroom winners included 8th graders Xavier Pavloski, Bartek Dlugopolski, Philip Kelly and Juvenal Perez. Seventh grade representatives were Emily Karbowniczek, Steven Potoczny, Daniel Severin, Samantha Plaia and David Wojas, with David emerging as the winner. David now will compete in a regional challenge as he embarks on the next step of this tournament and a chance for a $1,000 prize and college scholarship! Good luck, David!.
Emily Karbowniczek (above) sets the ball for teammate Nikol Krol in Thursday’s game against Evergreen Park’s Central Middle School. The seesaw affair saw the 7th graders lose in three games, while the 8th graders lost in two straight. At Evergreen, both 7th and 8th grade boys basketball teams lost to the Panthers, giving the 7th graders their first conference loss of the season.
