We are gearing up for a great start to the school year! One of our opening activities is to celebrate summer reading! All students are required to read at least one book from their grade level selections.
Algonquin ELL students won the Middle School Grand Prize at the GEG Chicagoland Film Festival for their film "Adventures of Eco Dude." Students were challenged to create a short film answering the question: What is your Superpower? Tell us how you can change the world for the better? "We studied ecology in science and wanted to make a video about saving the Earth," said one of the students. "Creating the video was fun and we learned a lot about using technology like the tripods, cameras, iMovie, and the green screen."
Beginning next school year, District 62 will introduce a new school day model for Algonquin Middle School students.
