Statement regarding East Aurora High School basketball coach stipend position

The East Aurora High School administration has decided to recruit a new head varsity basketball coach for 2017-18 season.

The decision comes after the District 131 Board of Education discussed the administration’s recommendation in closed session at their July 5 meeting.

"The Board heard and valued the support shown to the current coach by the community," said Dr. Mark McDonald, interim superintendent. "Ultimately they decided, since this is a stipend position, that it was appropriate for the high school administration to make this decision."

High school administration will begin interviewing internal candidates next week, with the goal of identifying the new coach before the next Board meeting on July 17.

In considering the support heard during the public comment portion of their meeting, the Board directed the high school administration meet again to carefully consider their decision.

Administrators met following the conclusion of the Board meeting and again in the morning, and reached the decision that it was time to recruit a new coach.

East High students qualify for National History Day competition

A documentary created by three East High students was recently selected as one of two national qualifiers at the Illinois History Expo held at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield.

The students and their project will now advance to the National History Day (NHD) competition at the University of Maryland-College Park outside Washington DC (June 11-15).

History students at East High began working on their projects back in September. Students must choose a topic from local/state history that fits the national theme. This year’s theme was “Taking a Stand in History".

Students must conduct research in both primary and secondary sources, compose an original thesis, and present their findings in one of the following mediums: Exhibit, Media Documentary, Research Paper, or Live Performance.

Competition began in December, when East High's annual school History Fair was held. Social Studies teachers judged projects and selected those that advanced to the Suburban Regional competition, held in February. Projects from there were selected to advance to Chicago Metro Finals held in April at the University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC).

Two groups of students qualified for the Illinois History Expo (State Finals) and one of the groups was chosen as a national qualifier for the National History Day (NHD).

Illinois History Expo (State Finalists):

- Adriana Nava Villanueva (Grade 11), Abigail Ramirez (11), and Fatima Rodriguez (11) – Media Documentary – “Chicago’s Chicano Movement: Chicanos al Grito de Guerra”

- Emma Blackmon (11) and Marlena Cannon (11) – Media Documentary – “The Chicago Black Panthers: Taking a Stand for Equality”

National History Day (National Qualifiers):

- Adriana Nava Villanueva, Abigail Ramirez, Fatima Rodriguez

East High Social Studies teacher Matthew Caylor is the Social Studies Club Advisor for East Aurora High School. East High has a strong tradition of success in this competition with students qualifying for NHD in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2015 and now in 2017.
