Little Mermaid Wows Musical Audiences
The Little Mermaid, Jr. played to capacity audiences on Feb. 24th and 25th. District 153 is so proud of the over 70 students in the cast and crew for their exceptional performances!
Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022 was a special day in District 153. Since the world won't see another 2-22-22--on a Tuesday-- for another 400 years, our schools marked the day with tutus, tie-dye, ties and tennies.
March madness with world music
James Hart French and World Cultures’ students will join students from over 3,000 schools worldwide in casting their first votes in Manie Musicale (Music Madness), a March Madness-style music competition. The competitors are 16 songs released this past year. Songs this year feature French, Flemish, Wolof, Arabic and English languages. Students predict and then vote on which songs will advance to the next round and which song is the overall winner. Good luck with your brackets, Panthers!
