Conrady Principal Andy Anderson accepts congratulations and note cards Friday during a “parade” in his honor. The long-time school administrator is leaving Conrady to be Asst. Superintendent of Pupil Personnel Services for North Palos District 117. On Friday, teachers and staff surprised him with a costume and a quick jaunt around the school for some well-wishes and cake!
Conrady’s Jazz Band played its final concert of the year Thursday with a swinging performance at the Patio restaurant in Bridgeview. The fundraiser and sendoff (it was retiring Band Director Sue Clemons’ last hurrah), serenaded diners with standards such as “String of Pearls” and “Fly Me to the Moon,” along with uptempo numbers such as “Rock Around the Clock” and “Evil Ways.” Dinner never sounded so good.
It’s a talk show. It’s a fairy tale. It's “The Snow White Variety Show,” and it’s serially funny as performed by the Conrady Drama Club. This year’s Spring Play kicked off Friday night with a seamless production that featured dozens of Conrady students in fine comedic form. Structured as a late-night variety show, this fast-paced comedy revolves loosely around the story of Snow White, but the show features a clown car full of wacky characters. Kudos to Conrady teachers Kim Dignin, Jackie Hausman, and Kristin Brudzisz for a standout production.
Congratulations to the Conrady Jaguars Boys’ Soccer team, who capped off a perfect 11-0 season with a win Friday evening in the SWIC Conference Championship game at Reavis High School in Burbank. The game was tight throughout as the Jaguars battled cold, rain, and a determined Liberty team to emerge victorious with a hard-fought 1-0 win. Way to go, Conrady!
Noah Robinson (above) sprints to the finish line first in the 800-meter relay. The Conrady Track and Field teams completed their 2019 season Saturday with some impressive performances at the SWIC Conference Meet at Oak Lawn High School. The 8th Grade Boys’ team captured the 2nd Place team title, highlighted by 8th graders Robinson (1st Place, 100 and 200 meters and long jump), and Joe Szeszycki (1st Place 400 meters). The Girls’ 6/7th and 8th Grade teams also did well, as did the Boys’ 6/7th team. Congrats to all who competed for a great season.
Conrady Band members performed their last major concert of the year Tuesday night before a packed house.

The 5th and 6th Grade Band performs Wednesday night at 7 p.m., and Jazz Band will perform at the Patio, from 5-6:15 p.m. on May 23.
