“Paper or Plastic?” by Werner Trieschmann
For her first job, teenage Sarah thinks she’s easily qualified to check out customers at Puritan Foods, her local grocery store. But Sarah isn’t prepared for the assistant manager who won’t deal with unruly customers, her crazy co-workers who put on camouflage to hunt down lost carts and won’t tell her who Angus is, or the store customers who are crazier than Sarah ever knew. All Sarah wants is the answer to the simplest question in the world: Paper or Plastic?
“Oh, What a Tangled Web” by John R. Carroll
On an impulse, Jan makes up a story, and the complications that result from it are extremely funny. Needing an excuse, Jan fumbles for a moment and then blurts out that there has been a death in the family. Actually, the only thing wrong in this family is that the cat is missing. In any case, people start coming over to express their concern and sympathy. Jan’s parents think they’re all referring to the missing cat and the hilarious complications just continue to multiply!

The Illinois 5Essentials is a comprehensive, evidence-based tool designed to drive improvement in schools. This system – which includes a diagnostic survey, scoring, reporting, and training – is an x-ray for schools and districts that identifies areas of strength and those in need of support.
Parents are asked to participate in the parent survey portion of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of the parent or child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole.
Parents may skip any questions they do not want to answer; however, they must click “Submit Survey” once they have reached the end in order for their responses to be counted towards the school’s response rate and included in the parent report.
The parent report will be made available to the school principals and superintendent, and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by parents. Participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at the child’s school and guide improvement. Again, identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to the parent or child.
Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ to take the parent survey. It will take approximately 10 minutes.
The following students were named Illinois State Scholars: Austin Jackson, Maura Karr, Jackie Olson, Bailey Swanson, Clayton Truman and Matt Weeks.
High School Graduation will be held on May 24th, 2015 at 1pm in the High School gymnasium.
