  • Who Killed Elvis?

    On Friday, June 5, Conrady Jr. High hosted a drive-in movie theater featuring its spring play, “Who Killed Elvis?” When school was closed in March, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the idea of continuing with the school play was in doubt. With the support of the administration, the school board, the Drama Club sponsors (Mrs. Kim Dignin, Ms. Jackie Hausman and Mrs. Corrine Dempsey) along with the technical support of Mr. Ian Chafee, the show went on although not exactly as originally planned. The show was converted from its original format to a virtual platform. The filming was done in three weeks, with an additional week of editing. The movie debuted at the drive-in theater (in Conrady’s back parking lot) for the actors and their families. It certainly was a big hit! If you would like to view the play, click "Who Killed Elvis" above for the link. Don’t forget your popcorn!

  • Photo Ops in Session

    Conrady teachers and staff pitched in to provide a virtual graduation for the Class of 2020 this past week. Unable to hold the regularly planned festivities for 8th graders due to social distancing, an alternative celebration was set up. Students had their parents drop them off and masked teachers escorted the grads-to-be through a series of photo opportunities and a singular diploma ceremony, which was videotaped as well. Congratulations again to the Class of 2020.

  • Jaguar Pride Parade

    Conrady supporters really showed their Jaguar Pride Monday as they braved frigid May temperatures Monday to catch one of the two parades that wound through parts of Palos Hills, Hickory Hills and Bridgeview. Conrady teachers and staff have missed seeing their students on a regular basis and the parades gave them a chance to show their appreciation to all the families who have worked to continue their studies. Kudos to all of the many students and family members who came out in support.

  • Conrady, Past and Present

    Laura Van Blaricom (Conrady Class of 2003) provided an extensive rundown of the history of North Palos School District 117 Thursday, in a wide-ranging presentation at the Palos Park Library. Van Blaricom’s talk, which examined the district’s beginnings as a one-room schoolhouse in the 19th century through the post-World War II Baby Boom expansion and multiple campuses, is part of her graduate school project. The heavily researched presentation also included a look at the key figures in the district’s growth, including H.H. Conrady, the longstanding superintendent for which our school is named, and Jeannie Stachowiak, the first female to be named superintendent.

    Kaleb Scott (No. 4) jumps center Tuesday during the 8th Grade Boys Basketball Tournament game at Jerling. Alas, the 8th and 7th Grade Boys dropped both games to end their seasons. The 7th Grade team finished with a 9-7 conference record, while the 8th Grade team fell to 6-10. Congrats to both teams and their coaches for a well-fought season.

  • Class in Session

    Deanna Hynes had a story to tell, and Conrady students listened. Then they had questions. Lots of them. Hynes told her story Tuesday in a series of assemblies designed to teach children about how to avoid situations that may lead to abuse and to report any instances they may have endured. Hynes’ personal story is a cautionary tale of childhood abuse, silence, and shame, and the long journey to recovery. But her appearance Tuesday, part of state-mandated awareness lessons, was also a positive story of perseverance and the value of support. And that was something everyone in attendance could rally behind.
