14 | April 12, 2018 | The tinley junction School HW students read classic novel SUBMITTED BY HILDA WALKER SCHOOL Sixth grade students at Hilda Walker read the novel “A Wrinkle in Time” this quarter. Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father, Mr. Murry, ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there. Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which help guide them on a brave journey to find their father and fight the evil in the world. Students went to the Imagine Theater to see Disney’s rendition of the book. Hilda Walker students loved making the connections between the movie and the novel. Pi Day at Hilda Walker SUBMITTED BY HILDA WALKER SCHOOL Students in Mrs. DeCesare’s math class at Hilda Walker in Tinley Park celebrated Pi Day on March 14 with a “Pi Day Challenge” activity. Students were tasked to find the circumference of one of four circles and then divide that by the circle’s diameter. The team closest to π (3.14) was the class winner.

PHOTO SUBMITTED TPHS attends ‘Live From the Morgue’ Students meet Cook County coroner SUBMITTED BY TINLEY PARK HIGH SCHOOL Students from Ms. Hourihan’s class during a Socratic Seminar discussing the similarities and differences between the novel and the movie. PHOTO SUBMITTED Tinley Park High School Anatomy and Physiology students along with their teacher, Mr. Chad Robson, recently attended the “Live From the Morgue” field trip. The group met with Cook County coroner Dr. Ben Margolis at the historic Davis Theater in downtown Chicago. The week before the event, Dr. Sarah Norris, a fourth year medical student, visited the Anatomy & Physiology classes to share her experiences while working for the coroner’s office as well as her experiences in medical school. Her stories were insightful and at times horrifically entertaining. At the start of the program, senior Vasilios Antonopoulos along with a student from Nazareth Academy read statements to the audience about their thoughts on death and dying. Dr. Margolis, a graduate of both Harvard and University of Chicago, is an incredibly compassionate scientist/doctor. Students were surprised by the humanistic nature of his job as well as the amount of respect given to the “patient” and their grieving family. Dr. Margolis displayed a film an autopsy he performed, described what he was doing and why he was doing it. Students were given the medical history of the deceased patient beforehand and that, combined with the results of the autopsy, were used to help determine the cause of death. According to Mr. Robson, “It was one of the best field trips I have taken my students on and certainly something they will never forget.” The tinley Junction’s Standout Student Sponsored by Marquette Bank Isabella Lemus, Grissom Middle School, eighth grade Isabella Lemus, an eigth grader at Grissom Middle School, enjoys math and hopes to one day work in the medical field. She is this week’s Standout Student. What is one essential you must have when studying? One essential I must have while studying is music playing in the background. I believe music playing quietly really helps me focus and study. What do you like to do when not in school or studying? When I am not in school or studying, I love to participate in sports. I play travel soccer for a club, and I also play basketball, volleyball, and soccer for Grissom. I also enjoy playing on my phone and seeing what has been going on on social media. I also enjoy watching Netflix. What is your dream job? My dream job is to work in the medical field. I would like to do something related to sports medicine. What are some of your most played songs on your iPod? Some the the most played songs on my phone are mostly by Demi Lovato: “Tell Me You Love Me,” “Sorry, Not Sorry,” and “Stone Cold.” What is one thing people don’t know about you? One thing not many people Photo submitted know about me is that I do not have a middle name. My full name is Isabella Lemus. To whom do you look up to and why? If i were asked this question a few years ago, I probably would have written down some famous person I admired. Now I have realized that the people to really look up to are my parents. They are really amazing, do so much for me, and set an awesome example for both me and my two sisters. Who is your favorite teacher and why? Although every teacher I have had at Grissom Middle School has been amazing, I would have to say that my favorite teacher is Mr. Hawrysio. Not only is he a great teacher, but he builds bonds with every student and makes his class a fun place to be. What’s your favorite class and why? My favorite class to be in is Math because it comes easier to me than other subjects. I also love figuring out equations! What is one thing that stands out about your school? One thing that stands out to me about my school is the great teaching! Grissom also has many activities for stu- dents to get involved with. What extracurricular(s) do you wish your school had? An extracurricular I wish my school had is an acting club where we would perform plays. I would also like another sports club like badminton or handball. What’s your morning routine? In the morning, I wake up about one hour before I head out the door. This gives me the perfect amount of time to get ready. First, I get up, get dressed, and head to the bathroom to brush my teeth and do my hair. Next, I walk down the stairs, eat breakfast, and pack my lunch. Last, I pack up my backpack and head out. If you could change one thing about school what would it be? If I would be able to change one thing about school, it would be to have a later start time so students could sleep in. What’s your favorite thing to eat in the cafeteria? Grissom does not have a cafeteria, but we do get hot lunch every Wednesday. My favorite thing for hot lunch is the chicken strips or chicken sandwich. What’s your best memory from school? My best memory from school is winning our soccer championship game against our rivals. At the whistle for the end of the game, we were tied and had to go into a shootout. After that, we had to go into a second shootout which was sudden death. Grissom ended up winning, and that feeling was amazing! Standout Student is a weekly feature in The Tinley Junction. Students are nominated by Tinley Park area schools.
