Charger Pride Activities
Connecting Safely In-Person AND Remote!
2020 has challenged our school and community in many ways, but one of the most profound areas that we have seen affected is the ability for people to connect. Our students, staff, and entire District are highly committed to the connections our students experience through Co-Curricular activities, including sports, clubs, and performances and have dedicated themselves to continuing our long traditions of students being active at Stagg High School. Whenever possible, sponsors have created opportunities for students to explore their talents and interests through virtual activities. They are getting feedback from our students regularly to facilitate the best ways for students to connect with them and each other. When meeting virtually is not feasible for the activity, sponsors are working closely with building administrators to have safe and productive practices, rehearsals, and meetings and communicate details frequently to the students in the activity. We are so excited to continue to grow our activities and offer our Chargers every chance possible to get, and stay, involved at Stagg!

Charger Pride - The Marching Charger Way!
Since July, the Marching Chargers have shown that no matter what, the band plays on! Our Marching Band and Color Guard practiced from July through October with the season culminating at a Showcase hosted by fellow District 230 School Victor J. Andrew on October 3. The Marching Chargers’ dedication to safety while still perfecting their craft was exemplary. The nearly seventy students in our Marching Band worked with eight staff members and did daily self-certifications, wore masks whenever not actively playing an instrument, practiced outdoors no matter the weather, remained in small groups, and even created an entire routine that ensured students were socially distant per IDPH and music organization guidelines. The Marching Band students, staff, and the families who support them were flexible and adapted seamlessly to any change needed. Their passion for music and constant willingness to do “whatever it takes” to perform are an example for all Chargers! Their season ended on October 3 with performances for their families, the Andrew High School Band, and professional judges and gave our musicians the opportunity to congratulate their Seniors for their ongoing dedication to the Marching Chargers Program. Thank you to all who made this season possible and so special!
Service Learning Opportunities Now on Canvas!
This month, all students were emailed an invitation to a Service Learning Canvas page to easily access any documents to verify their hours and to learn about opportunities to serve their community. Encourage students to take advantage of the hours offered as soon as possible to complete their hours and show their Charger Pride! To meet District 230 Graduation requirements, students must complete at least twenty-five hours of community service throughout their four years here, but many of our students earn far more than that.
Stagg High School welcomes all of our families to become involved with our great school community. If you are interested in joining any of our Parent Volunteer Organizations, please reach out! We are always looking for more enthusiastic Charger Families!
