Remember this picture? Our fifth graders displayed these in the Deerfield Public Library earlier this year. Mrs. Ruffolo entered this display in the Daughters of the American Revolution contest entitled "Honoring Our Heritage". We won and will be honored at a ceremony in mid February. Congratulations Mrs. Ruffolo and our 5th Graders! Go Chargers!
Please check this link to the Deerfield Review for coverage of the beautiful Veteran's Day Celebration that was held last week!
Joseph Newhall, son of Robert and Teresa Newhall, a junior at Deerfield 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, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2012, only 781 of more than 1.66 million students earned a composite score of 36.
In addition to academic achievements, Joseph is a member of the Varsity track team and band programs at DHS. He is currently working on his Eagle Scout project at Little House of Glencoe and will be traveling to Flint, Michigan on a service trip this sumer as part of the Faith Formation Program at Holy Cross Parish.
