Village Approves Stop Signs for Tripp's Busy Intersection

The Village of Buffalo Grove Traffic Committee approved the installation of new stop signs on Highland Grove Drive at Newtown Drive to make it a four-way stop, including the parking lot exit.

New Word Study Program for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction

This year, first through fourth graders will be using Words Their Way, a new phonics, spelling, and vocabulary program.

Project Based Learning Introduced to Teachers on Institute Day

Meridian and Aptakisic teachers spent nearly seven hours with PBL expert Dayna Laur, author of Authentic Learning Experiences: A Real-World Approach to Project-Based Learning, during the Teacher Institute Day in August. They learned how Project Based Learning (PBL) will take our rich content and connect it to college, career, and the world beyond. When teaching to the whole child, PBL ignites a purpose in students by providing an experience to help lessons make sense.
