Save Mount Assisi Academy

It’s been less than a week since the girls at Mount Assisi Academy in Lemont, Illinois found out that their school would be closing in June of this year, and they refuse to go down without a fight. Starting a Facebook page entitled ‘Save Mount Assisi Academy’ the same day as the official news came from their school’s website, people began rallying together by the thousands. In only five short days, over 7,000 people have liked the page, and on Twitter the tag ‘#savemaa’ has trended. The problem, however, is not with the support and the number of kids who love their school, but rather the money the school has in order to continue operating. If you’d like to support their fight to keep their school open, follow the links below.

Argo’s Production of Grease 2012

If you didn’t attend the 2012 musical for Argo High School, you missed out. Grease is the word. Yup, Grease was this years musical performance and boy was it a memory to remember. For being a high school remake it was really well performed and worth the see. With 80+ students that dedicated their time to make the show a success, it really paid off. The first night, was an almost sold out performance for the actors. A job well done indeed, more info on it to come. Interviews, Cast listing, ect. Stay tuned. -WARG DJ/Public Relations Chris
