    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.

  • Full Speed Ahead

    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.

    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!.

Principal's Message

  • Mr. Andy Anderson FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRINCIPAL
     
    Within the past four years, we have acquired two national awards, finished a $20 million renovation, and developed a team of students, staff, and parents that is stronger than ever, smarter than ever, and well just all around ...."Better than Ever"! 
     
    Our staff is a phenomenal team. Dedicated and determined for student success is evident in the following ways:
     
    *Conrady ranks consistently in the top-five schools in the State of Illinois in academic achievement based on student demographics
    *Conrady's athletic, academic, visual and performing arts groups regularly place first in conference events and contests
    *North Palos Schools equips our staff with outstanding training and resources for students to be successful
    *We are progressive with our curriculum to ensure that students continue to meet the ever-changing expectations of learning standards and to be competitive with their acquired skills 
    *Our school reflects a diverse population of ethnicities, backgrounds, languages, and ideas that help shape us into being well-rounded individuals 
    *Conrady staff goes above and beyond expectations in part by working all hours of the day and on weekends in order for kids to have the best possible education 
    *Our students are talented, work hard, and are just plain enjoyable to be around--We have great kids!
     
    Our expectations are high. We never settle. We truly look at each individual student on a regular basis to identify how better we can serve each one. Our after school programs ensure opportunities for students to be well-rounded in all areas.
