With summer break on the horizon, the North Shore School District 112 Board of Education approved its second middle school curriculum update this month at its May 21 meeting.
The new math curriculum is called Pearson enVision 2.0 and was recommended to the Board at its May 7 meeting. It was picked by a committee that included teachers and administrators from Northwood and Edgewood middle schools and Highland Park High School.
Highland Park’s volleyball season may have ended in a straight-set loss to Barrington, but the Giants certainly showed flashes of what coach Kyle Muldoon has suspected all season against the highly-touted Broncos.
“It wasn’t necessarily our best match but we showed that we could play with them and that we have the ability and the talent on our side to win those matches,” Muldoon said.
Highland Park (6-23) lost 25-17, 25-10 in a regional semifinal to Barrington at Lake Forest on May 21. As the no. 12 seed in Sub-Sectional A at this year’s Harlem sectional, the Giants went into the match on the heels of an upset win over eighth-seeded Waukegan in straight sets, 25-18, 25-17.
