Curriculum Spotlight

  • Image from the cemetary walk

    Team 8A went on the Discovery Walk at the Evergreen Cemetery on October 7th.  They were celebrating the 20th anniversary of this program. The discovery walk is when actors take the students back in time to meet some important historical figures that have lived and influenced McLean County.  Since it was the 20th anniversary, the walk had the best characters from their past 20 years.  The students and teachers on 8A learned a lot about the history of McLean County.
