Photo Series at HP Public Library
Students and their families are invited to stop by the Highland Park Public Library during the month of June and check out Insight Advocacy's photo series, Dynamic Today with Unlimited Potential.
A project featuring Highland Park youth in photo recreations as iconic Chicago legends, Former President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Ida B. Wells. There is also a group photo of a few of the Insight Advocacy youth as their amazing selves.
Each photo has been paired with books that children are encouraged to check out to learn more about the featured legends.
Creating visibility, inclusion and community.

The Earth thank you for recycling! Recycle everyday. | Novelty christmas,  Holiday, Christmas
Hey Pandas!  Guess what???  Because of your amazing efforts during our recycling project, Sherwood placed #14 out of over 530 schools actively reporting!!! We also ended up recycling 387 pounds of plastic!!!! To add to that, because of the efforts of ALL of the participating schools, collectively we recycled 323,586 lbs of plastic and kept this out of our landfills! While we didn't win, we should ALL be proud of our efforts and the difference we made in the environment.  
Way to go, Sherwood!!!!
We plan on continuing these efforts next year and would love for our Sherwood families to help us with a headstart this spring and during the summer.  All you have to do is weigh your plastic bags, record the weight, and then recycle them as usual at participating store locations such as Mariano's, Jewel-Osco, or Target.  Make sure to keep track of your efforts! If you'd like to turn your weight totals in each month, please feel free to email them to Jennifer Broderick at jenniferbroderick08@gmail.com
