Tripp Students Making a Difference

Students at Tripp School focus on making their school a better place during the Project Based Learning (PBL) Day each month. Projects include composting and gardening, a new student/family welcome committee and improvements to lunchroom procedures and food service to name a few. First and third graders discussed indoor recess ideas. Kindergarten students skillfully operated a crayon recycling factory, and are so excited that these crayons will be used throughout the school for big kid projects. Watch a recap video of Tripp's PBL Day.

Meridian Students Join Millions in One Song

On January 29, Meridian students joined their voices with others around the world to create an international chorus. They sang a brand new song, We Are One, which will be released globally on International Childhood Cancer Day, February 15. The song We Are One is written by Christophe Beck, the composer of Disney's Frozen film music. The project's purpose is to draw international attention to children heroically fighting cancer. Thank you to Mrs. Marsha Baldacci and Mrs. Gail Simon for organizing the recording session.

District 102 Announces New Three Year Teacher Contract

The Board of Education of Aptakisic-Tripp School District 102 and the Aptakisic-Tripp Education Association are pleased to announce the approval of a new three year contract for the 2016 - 2019 school years. The contract provides average salary increases of 4.12 percent, partially offset by the Association's concessions on retirement benefits and a change in health insurance costs which allows the district to continue to attract and retain top educators while ensuring the preservation of the district's strong financial condition. 


Aptakisic Business Club Hosts Successful Volleyball Fundraising Event

The Yin Yang volleyball team clinched the title at the D102 Aptakisic Junior High teacher volleyball game on January 13 against the Rosenak Raptors. A goose-bump moment united everyone when seventh grader Addison Kaye sang the National Anthem a cappella with perfect poise. The AJHS band also added to the excitement as they played energizing, pump-up music when the team players were introduced.


McTeacher Night A Huge Success

Thank you to D102 staff, our PTO and Wheeling McDonald owner/operator Suzanne Conley for a successful McTeacher night on January 13. Teachers served delicious meals to students and families to raise money for District 102 PTO. They greeted guests, worked the front counter, served drinks and ice cream, cleared tables, sold pies and even dressed in a pie costume. Lots of McFun was had by all!

Tripp Third Graders Visit Futabakai School

Mrs. Yoon's third grade class writes to pen pals at the Futabakai School, a Japanese school in Arlington Heights. Twice a year, the students visit each other's school. In December, Tripp third graders visited Futabakai, played games with their pen pals, learned to write their name in Japanese, to say thank you in Japanese, and to use chopsticks. Thank you Mrs. Yoon for making a video about the Tripp and Futabakai School Exchange.

Meridian Students Present Business Plans

Sixth graders from Mrs. Eigenrauch and Mrs. Schneider's classes presented business plans to a panel of "Shark Tank" judges on December 8. These sixth grade pre-algebra students gained business planning experience. They researched an innovative product or service, calculated start-up costs, designed a company logo, produced advertisements, and calculated projected revenue and expenses.
