Warren, IL – Warren Jr/Sr High School Principal Josh Knuth is pleased to announce that Allison Heller, daughter of Joe and Sarah Heller, Kimberlyn Raab, daughter of Chris and Lisa Raab, and Ethan Williams, son of Mike and Teri Williams, have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.

On Wednesday, May 22, Warren’s 8th Grade Pre-Engineering students set sail in the first (annual?) Cardboard Regatta at Apple Canyon Lake pool. This was a culmination of a year’s worth of work by the students as they each had a one-quarter long Pre-Engineering “mini” class with Mrs. Robbe.
The 8th Pre-Engineering mini focused on the engineering design process. Throughout the quarter, students used the stages of engineering, as well as mathematics calculations, to design, build, test, and improve water bottle rockets, thermal protection systems, and containers to safety send a chip through the mail.
Their final project was to design, create a scale model, test the scale model, build, and race a cardboard canoe. They used prior knowledge and researched examples of cardboard canoes to assist them in their design as well.
As they built and finalized their canoe, the students were required to calculate surface area and the volume of the canoe. They used this data along with the mass calculations to determine the maximum weight capacity of the craft. The measurement requirements included converting between units of measure. They also had to calculate the total mass and cost of the tape used.
The teams were required to have two people in their boat and were only allowed cardboard and tape. They were also required to have a theme. The students were scored on their calculations and their work as a team.
The final results are in the video below. As you can see, everyone had a blast at the event.
We will be live streaming the Class of 2019 Graduation tonight on YouTube.

On Thursday, April 18th, junior and senior high school students and staff volunteered their time to complete the “Bathroom Beautification” project. The stalls in the bathrooms were painted with inspirational messages and designs. By transforming the school’s environment in a positive way, we hope to uplift and encourage all of our students. We are so proud of and thankful to the students and staff who helped make this vision a reality!
