Congrats 8th grade boys basketball conference tournament champions!
Warren Jr/Sr High School Principal Josh Knuth is pleased to announce that Miah Stiefel, daughter of Darren and Terri Stiefel, and Garrett Williams, son of Mike and Teri Williams, have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, confers this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually. This year, more than 21,000 honorees join the other top students who have been honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.
Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 757 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank.

As is tradition at the end of the quarter, the turtle migration in Warren is set to begin! Dating back decades, turtle ottomans are a rite of passage for many Warren 8th graders as an introduction to the construction and industrial arts courses offered by Mr. Janecke in the High School or the CTE Academy.
Students receive a hands-on introduction to woodworking in this 9-week course where they measure, cut wood, stain, assemble, and upholster their turtle footstools. Students get to choose the fabric for their turtle’s shell. This year we have a wide array from the comfortable plaid to the exotic furry pink shell.
Mr. Janecke is but a steward to the terrapin tradition. Dating back decades, the ancient art of turtle building has been handed down by such illustrious former staff members as Mr. Stake and Mr. Kussner who have ushered in generations of hard-shelled hassocks to the surrounding area. Legend has it the blueprints for the turtle design are kept in a secured location known only to the industrial arts teacher.
Residents of Warren, Apple River and Nora anxiously await the migration of the turtles from the school’s shop to their homes whereupon the turtles take up their sacred job as one of the finest resting places for the weary feet of their masters. If you have one of these turtles living with you, we would love to see them. Post a picture in the comments on our facebook page!

Hello Warren Community!
I am pleased to announce that our project, “Room Renovations,” has been fully funded! My students and I can not thank you enough for your generous donations and support of our project! We can’t wait to use our new furniture and are looking forward to learning and growing together in our new classroom environment.
The Servant Leaders are hosting a volleyball tournament fundraiser on March 3 for Jaycee Bennett and Brynn Fry (a 10 year old River Ridge student) who have both developed CRPS, a chronic debilitating pain syndrome which has affected a foot and leg of both girls. Grab your friends, get a volleyball team together, and have some fun! Teams should consist of 6-8 players with at least one girl on the court at all times. Teams should sign up in the office. Be sure to purchase your CRPS shirt in the office, too!
