Each year, the Illinois Principal’s Association allows each member (Principal) to bring two students to a luncheon intended to highlight their outstanding accomplishments and contributions made to their school. The qualities that are sought for this recognition are: service to the community, self-improvement, contribution to the school, and dedication to the school, staff and fellow students. This year, Mr. Chapman was honored to bring 8th Graders Ethan Jett & Andy Sprouls. Their respective academic teams identified these two young men as students exemplifying the preceding characteristics. Congratulations to Ethan and Andy!
