Planning is underway for Food, Friends and Fun, the Peoria Public Schools Summer activity schedule. This summer, Peoria Public Schools and its food service provider, Sodexo, have teamed up to offer 14 summer food sites that offer free meals to any child 18 years old and younger at both District 150 buildings and community partner sites. In addition, children in the community will be fed a free nutritious breakfast and/or lunch at 30 other site, both district campus sites and community partner sites, for different summer camps. While most of those camps and activities are open to any students 18 years and younger in the community, the student must be pre-registered for the camp or activity.
Manual Academy administrators chose two students to represent the school at the annual Illinois Principals' Association Recognition Breakfast. The breakfast serves an an opportunity for school administrators to honor students who truly demonstrate the heart and soul of their school. Eric Cortez (Junior) and Logan Hills (8th Grade) were selected to represent Manual Academy based on their hard work, involvements, academic achievement, and most importantly their character and citizenship. Both serve as leaders within the school and its many organizations as well as role models in and out of the classroom. Students like these two young men make the educational process exciting and rewarding and Manual would like to thank them for embodying the true spirit of student leaders.
Buzz Lightyear flew down to Sterling School to see the children. The West Wing pre-school children were delighted to see one of their favorite characters. He told them all that he was flying over Sterling School and saw that they were following expectations . He expressed how proud he was of their good behaviors. The children gave him "High Fives" with a promise that they would be good listeners and behave. Buzz made stops in other Sterling classrooms telling them that they had a secret mission for the end of the year. Buzz said "Be positive and score high on your tests so you can pass into the next galaxy." Buzz told them their scores will soar "To infinity and Beyond". Alex Brungart, a student in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing classroom, donned the Buzz Lightyear costume to provide encouragement and positive vibes as we move into the last month of school.
