Rural Kenosha County schools are on spring break this week. But, students were so busy in the week leading up to their well-deserved time off, that Homeroom has plenty to highlight.
Several celebrations of achievement took place throughout the county. Riverview held its first Curriculum Showcase, the Salem School Celebration included a “synchronized swimming” skit performed by male teachers, and Paris School celebrated the culmination of its annual Literacy Unit.
Today’s problem: Dumped televisions in a wetland on the south side of the 9100 block of Highway ML (122nd Street ) in Pleasant Prairie. This is just west of Highway H (88th Avenue) and just east of the Canadian Pacific/Amtrak railroad tracks.
Fix It noticed the TVs while bicycling by the area, which is near the Des Plaines River. They’re on the bottom of moderate incline just off the side of ML, in a spot where it would be hard to see them from a vehicle on the road.
The featured organization in this week’s Community Connection is the Kenosha Symphony. Secretary Elizabeth Tercek provided the answers.
