Chicago Mosaic School Field Trip 2014
Our 7th graders had the opportunity to visit the Chicago Mosaic School as their field trip this quarter. They had an incredible time touring the gallery viewing mosaic artwork from all over the world and being introduced to the tools and processes of mosaic art-making.
Thank you Mrs. Bradley for your continued vision and partnering with the arts community in bringing studio visit experiences to SN students!!

Frederick - Chicago Children's Theatre
October 15, 2014 - November 16, 2014
First up this season is Leo Lionni’s Frederick, a world premiere musical based on beloved children’s author Leo Lionni’s Caldecott Award-winning book about Frederick the mouse.
"While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick daydreams the summer away. When dreary weather comes, it is Frederick who has stored up something special for the long cold winter. The classic, much-loved early reading book celebrates the idea that there is a place for all of us in this world."
