It's Spring!

Greetings Country Club Hills School District 160 Community,

Spring is here and Summer is on it's way! We welcome the warm weather and hope it stays. Below are a few updates for the Country Club Hills School District 160 community.

The 2nd Annual Student Art Gallery and Spring Musical, themed Rollin' Through the Decades, was an awesome event! The Fine Arts Department worked closely with Dr. Lawrence, and the Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Department to organize the event. During the musical, there were various music performances from Sykuta, Meadowview and Southwood, including a special band performance by the Rich Central High School Band, Flag majors and Majorettes. Our students performed songs from the 2000's going back to the 60's and were in character the entire time! Stay tuned for photos and video coming soon. The Art Department displayed a collection of art from all three schools, varying in technique. Talent was in the building from the walls to the stage! Special thanks to the following Fine Arts teachers for for their commitment to making this event a success: Khara Gihan (Meadowview), Christopher Smith (Southwood), Joseph Petraitis (Sykuta), Melissa Wojcik (Meadowview), Jason Cuevas (Southwood) and Stephanie Cheers (Southwood). We are proud of our students and would like to thank the staff, parents and community for the continued support of our Fine Arts and Music programs!

I believe parent involvement is very important to student success. Whether you are mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, uncle, aunt, or guardian, showing interest in your student encourages them to do their best and can decrease the need for attention from their peers. Ways you can be consistently involved in their education include; attending a parent-teacher conference, a class or school event, participating in school fundraising, serving as a volunteer on a school committee; and attending at least one school or PTO meeting during the school year.

Studies show that students with involved parents/guardians, regardless of income or background, are more likely to earn higher grades and test scores, pass their classes, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well to school, graduate and go on to post-secondary education.

Let’s finish the year strong, giving Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day!
