Not in our School Restorative Listening Circle invite you to join them on Zoom this Sunday at 4pm this Sunday. The ID is 81083436272 and the Passcode is 8881AT. We will be talking about Remote Learning, and our thoughts and feelings behind it. All of the information that we will get from students who attend this will have their feelings/thoughts sent anonymously to Mr. Johnson so that he can look over how remote learning is affecting students. All of the student facilitators in this Restorative Listening Circle are trained, and it will only be students in there to create a safe and comfortable environment for the participants
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) announced the winner for the 2020 Congressional App Challenge (CAC) in the 13th District of Illinois - Trevin Vanhook - for his app called "The Funzone”. Judges for the CAC were individuals from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois and potential users of the students’ apps. Apps were scored on three criteria: concept of the app, design of the app, and demonstration of coding/programming skills. Trevin is currently taking AP Computer Science A and Cybersecurity taught by Ms. Schermann. Congratulations to Trevin Vanhook!!!

This week’s Group winner is the EYC 1 and 2 students. They were nominated by Mrs. Wilson who has this to say about them: "Students enrolled in EYC 1 and 2 to work with preschool children. Due to COVID, the students have shifted all their teaching to an online format and they spent countless hours working to adjust the preschool room to accommodate COVID guidelines. The week before preschoolers were to return in-person, preschool was cancelled. The students never complained and reworked in-person activities to be online. I am so proud of these Wildcats!!!!!" Mrs. Wilson will have a certificate to share with all of you!
Once again, congratulations to each of this week’s winners, and “thanks for catching the kat-itude!”
It’s a great day to be a Wildcat!
RAWR, RAWR, RAWR!!!
