Naperville Now 03-06-17

Late Start Time Vote

Tonight District 203 school board members will continue the discussion on the late start days for high school students. Staff recommends that high school students have a later start time every Wednesday beginning in the 2017-2018 school year to allow for more time for teacher collaboration and to better students’ health. The 203 board will vote tonight at their meeting at 7 p.m.


Hearing Impaired Now Prepared

A young Naperville resident was caught doing a good deed. Recently Anshika Varshney donated $100 earned doing chores, to the Naperville Fire Department to help the hearing impaired be better prepared in an emergency. The money will be used to purchase a special fire alarm clock for people that activates when the smoke detector sounds by providing flashing lights and a bed shaker to wake the hearing impaired resident.


Hockey Highlights

It was a memorable weekend for three of our local hockey teams. On Friday night, Neuqua Valley made program history, defeating St. Ignatius by a score of 4-2. The Wildcats moved on to the final eight of the Blackhawk Cup for the first time ever. That same night, Benet Academy secured its spot in the final eight as well, cruising past Fenwick by a score of 7 to 4. The Redwings look for a third consecutive final four berth when they face Glenbrook North on Wednesday night. Yesterday, Waubonsie came back from a two goal deficit in the third period to defeat Libertyville 4-3 in the
Blackhawk Cup combined division. The Warriors will also be looking to get back to the final four on Friday against AWF. Neuqua Valley capped off a stellar weekend by winning the Illinois West Cup over Oak Park-River Forest last night. Ben Granato’s hat trick propelled the Wildcats to a 6-1 win, which gave the Wildcats their second Illinois West Cup in the last three seasons.
