Fundraiser: A walk-a-thon was held recently at Our Lady of Humility School and the students raised $18,650. The annual event is one of the school’s main fundraisers and has been used in the past several years to help students grow more aware of some of the needs of the community. Each student was required to raise $60 and with many students raising more than the minimum and many companies matching donations, the school set a record for most money raised. Because one of the school’s fifth-graders was diagnosed with cancer this past summer, each class was asked to research a form of cancer and then find out what the national organization chose as the color for the particular cancer. The students all dressed in that color for the day and grew in their awareness of the disease.
Perfect ACT: Pauline Moll, daughter Richard and Sandra Moll and a senior at Grayslake North High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of more than 1.8 million students earned a composite score of 36.
