  • Jazzy Finale

    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.

  • Fractured Fairy Tales

    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.

  • Doh! It's STEAM Night!

    Primary grade teacher Bridget Golden (right) helps some willing participants make their own Play-Doh- like modeling goop during a STEAM presentation at Conrady Thursday night. District 117 teachers and staff enthralled dozens of parents and schoolchildren alike with a host of fun educational activities. STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry and critical thinking. Visitors Thursday participated in a host of mini workshops, including math games, building challenges, scientific experiments and artful projects.

  • Mother Goose

    For the past several years a coosome twosome (otherwise identified as a Canada goose couple) have taken residence each Spring in one of the many Conrady courtyards. The site is relatively protected from predators and the elements and apparently a nice place to hatch a family. Wednesday was liberation day, as several Conrady science teachers helped remove the goslings from the enclosure so they could be reunited with mom and dad outside the friendly confines. Till next year?
