“A Million Dreams", the student created documentary about Hawthorne School, is now available to watch on YouTube. As a part of a 5th grade club run by Assistant Principal Dr. Podraza, the students spent months recording, editing and producing the video about current instruction and future dreams for our school. The students and Dr. Podraza are incredibly thankful to the teachers, students and parents who contributed their ideas to this film.

Young artists at Churchville Middle School had the opportunity to partner with two local veterans who are also artists to create a piece of work. During their Acceleration class, CMS students were mentored by Veteran Artist Dawn Radford throughout the month of December to create the original artwork. Their piece was unveiled during a reception at the National Veterans Art Museum in Chicago on February 20th.


On Saturday, January 26th, a group of eighth grade girls from Churchville and their mothers were able to attend the annual Dare to Dream Conference. At the conference, the girls attended career and school panels led by Latina women, who shared their own experiences of overcoming obstacles and the steps they have taken to pursue higher education. Mothers attended workshop sessions in which they gained insight on how to support and encourage their daughters.

At the end, all girls and their mothers participated in a powerful activity where they exchanged letters. The Churchville girls left the conference feeling empowered, stepped out of their comfort zone, and made connections with other girls their age. They all look forward to receiving their certificates of participation from State Representative, Kathleen Willis.


Sam Walsh was named "Athlete of the Month" by the Chicago Tribune this week for the month of January.  Country Financial recognized Sam Walsh for this great award and presented the boys' basketball program with a $500 donation at the York/ IC Prep game on Monday, February 4th.
