Conrady’s Drama Club members served up a satisfying menu of laughter and lunacy this weekend in their delightfully offbeat production of “The Crimson House Mystery.” The spoof of private eye shows featured a baker’s dozen of memorable characters: a pint-sized detective, a mystery writer, a pompous actress, a clueless cop, a bewildered butler, and a hotel manager who harbors a few secrets. Did we mention a murder—or two? It was all in good fun and wrapped in a sparkling set design that contributed to some standout performances. Congratulations to the cast, crew, and sponsors for a terrific production.
Opt-out options available; contact Principal Anderson no later than Friday, May 25
Conrady’s Boys Soccer team capped off another terrific season Friday with a 3-1 win against the Liberty Patriots.

Congratulations to Coaches Grant Griffith, Matt Majchrowicz, and the Jaguars who gave it their all this season.
Conrady students and staff got a sneak preview of the Spring Band and Choir performance at a school-wide assembly Thursday. Members of the school’s dance teams, choir, and band performed a number of selections, while Drama Club members teased their upcoming play, “The Crimson House Mystery,” which will be performed next weekend. A few Conrady teachers and staff also joined in the fun as part of Teacher Appreciation Week. Thanks to all for their hard work.
Conrady showed off some its best and brightest students at the second annual 8th Grade Symposium, held this past weekend before an appreciative crowd at Stagg High School. Expanded from last year’s Honors Program, this year’s Multiple Intelligences Symposium was open to all 8th grade students and showcased the many ways students learn. Combining subjects such as history, economics, mathematics, art, sociology and language arts, students presented their well-researched projects using everything from dance, music, and poetry, to model design and dramatic monologues. The end result was an unforgettable evening of student achievement. Congratulations to all who participated.
Conrady students got a chance for some hands-on learning at this year’s STEM Expo held recently at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills. The STEM Expo (exploration through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is designed to showcase what makes a STEM education rewarding and powerful. About 30 students attended the field trip.
Conrady’s Boys’ and Girls’ track teams had a successful week with two terrific performances at meets held at Oak Lawn and Stagg High Schools. In both meets, Conrady sprint teams finished at or near the top, with 7th grader Noah Robinson (above) winning the 100-meter dash and anchoring the victorious sprint relay teams. Both boys and girls entries in field events such as shot put and long jump also finished at or near the top of the standings. Congratulations to all who participated.
