SJO encourages positive culture

The culture at St. Joseph-Ogden High School breeds success.

That’s what graduates always say when they come back to speak to students.

Dr. Alison Stoner was no exception.

Stoner, who spoke to students at the Academic Awards Ceremony earlier this fall, is a pathologist at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville.


Schools in good shape

At this month’s board meeting of the St. Joseph Community Consolidated School District, board members and administrators discussed ongoing maintenance needs due to the 10-year Health, Life and Safety survey.


District supports co-op

The Villa Grove/Heritage co-op is up for renewal in the spring, but both districts want different things from the co-op moving forward.

Heritage Superintendent Tom Davis said his district would like the co-op to be a full co-op and include volleyball, common colors and a common mascot.


More parking on Main Street?

More parking could be coming to Main Street.
During a recent board meeting the St. Joseph-Ogden Board of Education discussed the property the district owns located at 511  N. Main Street.
Brooks said the property could be used for additional parking for the high school.


Superintendent supports coop

The Heritage School District has began looking at the Villa Grove/Heritage Coop. Superintendent Tom Davis said the future of the athletic and academic partnership with Villa Grove High School was discussed at a recent meeting.
The coop is in its third year and in the first year of a two-year agreement with the IHSA.
Renewal would have to occur by the summer of 2017.


Preparing for the worst

St. Joseph-Ogden sophomore Andrew McDermott found himself zipped into a body bag last Friday.

McDermott was one of five SJO students that participated in a mock accident event at the high school.

“It’s really a serious thing that can happen and has happened before,” McDermott said.
