CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 230 THOUGHT MEANING ACTION

What’s Inside The shortest month on the calendar is rarely the least busy, as far as VJA goes.
As we move to February, students are solidly set in their second semester classes
Andrew Pride: and the time before Spring Break seems like it is too far off.
Our winter sports season winds down with conference and tournament play.
FEBRUARY 2011 Before the month began, we crowned two conference champions with our Girls
and Boys Bowling teams. Additionally, our poms, cheerleading, basketball, wrestling

District 230 to Check outstanding accomplishment within all our departments, and achievement on the
PSAE. We will also honor students based on a combination of a strong academic
record, high levels of community service and involvement in school activities. This
night serves as a reminder to us all that the Class of 2011 is starting to progress from
