On April 26, the Lake County Region Illinois Principals Association hosted its annual breakfast and recognition ceremony at Vernon Hills High School. Principals nominated students in their schools who have shown outstanding achievements in school and community.

Hawthorn Elementary North second graders recently visited Brookdale at Hawthorn Lakes Retirement Community to share what they have learned about Fire Safety from Fireman Tony Rodkey.
The residents of Brookdale then read a story to the second graders titled No Dragons for Tea, which is highly recommended by the National Fire Protection Association due to the fire safety message in the story. The students enjoyed listening to the story and sharing their own knowledge about fire safety with the residents.
Fireman Tony, as the students know him, of the Countryside Fire Protection District, educates students in grades K-12 about fire and life safety.
Check out the annual District 73 Art Show at the Aspen Drive Library. Close to 400 student artists displayed unique forms of art during the art show. Click here to see the many artists and their artwork. Artwork is on display through Friday, April 7.
The art show represents all the schools strongest pieces including drawings, paintings, collages, paper sculptures, Papier-mâché and print-making.
“Strongest to me does not necessarily mean the ‘best’ but rather the students that take the greatest risks with their art or show the most growth during the rotation or from year to year, said Hawthorn Middle School North School Art Teacher Hannah Altshuler.
The Elementary North Student Council volunteered at Feed my Starving Children. The students packed 79 boxes and helped feed 46 children for a year. Additionally, the school raised almost $1,200, which was donated to help feed children and their families.
