The Consolidated High School District 230 administration is looking to create an advisory/resource period for all students by starting studies at 8 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m. beginning in August.
In effort to extend tutoring and other services beyond class work help, Consolidated High School District 230 administrators are planning to start school days 30 minutes earlier during the 2013-2014 school year. Freshmen and sophomores at Carl Sandburg High School, Amos Alonzo Stagg High School and Victor J. Andrew High School now have access to a 25-minute advisory period during the day with the same teacher, but the change would expand the program to all students and also add variety to the study period. With current bus schedules, not all students can take advantage of the program, said D135 spokesperson Carla Erdey. “We’re looking at making sure the same opportunities are available for all students, as well as meeting with teachers, …

The Chargers visited Sandburg this week, falling 54-7.
The Sandburg Eagles hosted the Stagg Chargers in its first home game of the season, defeating the Chargers 54-7. The Eagles' offense was just too much and its defense shutting down nearly every Charger effort to move the ball down the field. Shortly before the end of the first half, Stagg successfully reached its endzone, briging the score at half time to 38-7. However, this was the last time the Chargers would come close to approaching its endzone again. —Photos by Ann Bresingham

District 230 bragging rights might be at stake for tonight’s football game, but the players, coaches, band musicians and attendees will also be supporting our local service men and women.
Friday night's football is more than just a chance for two District 230 schools to battle it out. It's also a chance to honor veterans. Sandburg Football Coach Dave Wierzal was the one who brought up the idea of honoring local veterans at Friday’s game against Amos Alonzo Stagg High School, while raising money for an organization that rebuilds houses for veterans. Wierzal spearheaded the effort to start selling about specially made tshirts before the game, with proceeds all going to Homes4Heroes, a volunteer home repair service for veterans ran by New Lenox resident Bill Johnson.
