The Aptakisic-Tripp CCSD 102 Board of Education will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 a.m. in the District Office Conference Center, 1231 Weiland Road, Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

The purpose of the hearing is to receive both public comment and testimony on a proposed modification or waiver of the daily physical education requirement at Pritchett and Tripp elementary schools during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years as District 102 addresses its need to increase space for the increasing enrollment of students as stipulated in Goal Area 2 of District 102’s 2015-2020 Learning Vision Into Action (LVIA) strategic plan. The waiver, if granted, will be in effect for two years only.  Note that District 102 will continue to provide three days of Physical Education each week at Pritchett and Tripp and five days each week at Meridian and Aptakisic JH.

Aviation Club Participates in Quadcopter Challenge

Ten of the twenty-five member Aptakisic Aviation Explorer's Club (AAEC) participated in the Quadcopter Show and Do Challenge on May 15 at the Chicago Police Education and Training Division. Other students from Beach Park, Chicago, Lake Forest, and Round Lake took turns flying and fixing their Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Our AAEC students formed two five-person teams and participated in a variety of challenges including an obstacle course, flight spot landing, heaviest payload lift, longest flight duration, flight training, and best drive train efficiency. Students also presented on various aspects of the UAV club and learned about careers in the field of Unmanned Vehicles from Collins Engineers, Inc. Mrs Chausis, Dr. Hudson, and Miss Yang serve as AAEC club sponsors.
