I am honored to award a posthumous diploma to Walter Elfering. WWII broke out & his 3 older brothers joined the Army. Since he was the next oldest & had two younger siblings he was held back from completing school at ACHS to run the family farm. Once a Sequoit, always a Sequoit!

From Principal Hamilton's "The Champion" newsletter that is sent to students, staff, and parents: This has been a very difficult week for all of us. Not only is it difficult as we try to find our “groove” and build a routine around remote and hybrid learning, but there has been civil unrest near us and in our own town. The recent events in Kenosha have hit home and has increased the level of anxiety and fear that seems to surround us daily. I want to acknowledge those emotions and reassure you that I am here for you, our school is here for you, and our extended school community is here for you. In uncertain times, the routine of learning and the return to what is known can serve as an anchor for us. In addition, these times also bring to light the need for us to treat each other with respect, responsibility, and pride. I do not write these words lightly, with all my heart I believe that if we focus on being kind to one another, showing respect, taking responsibility for ourselves, and having pride in who we are, we will come together as a learning community. We may not all agree with one another, but we can all care about one another. It is the disagreements and compromises that laid the foundation for our democracy. It is that same civil discord and respectful, difficult conversations that will move us forward. As educators, we approach times like these with a focus on being there for our students, on being there for one another, and on using this time as a teachable moment. Our role is to teach our students how to engage in thoughtful conversations based upon evidence, while respecting the opinions of others. We teach students how to challenge one another, not for the sake of argument, but for the sake of moving the argument and discussion forward. We teach students to listen to one another and to be responsible in the creation of their opinion and to express it with pride and respect. Again, we may not agree with one another, but we can care for and about one another. Antioch Community High School is a safe space for learning. If you have a need for emotional support, please reach out to your teachers, counselor, and/or an administrator. We do not have one school color in our logo. Instead, we have several that come together to make a visual in which we can all have pride. Go Sequoits!

The incidents in Kenosha are disturbing to all of us. The proximity of such events causes us to pause and appreciate the safety we have in Antioch and surrounding communities. We have received information that two individuals involved in a deadly incident reside in Antioch. However, they are NOT currently associated with Antioch or Lakes Community High School. One of the alleged individuals was enrolled at Lakes Community High School for a short period of time during the 2017 - 18 school year. We are thankful to our Police Departments’ efforts for increasing patrols and presence around the school to continue to provide the safest environment possible for our students, staff, and community.

Education Is Needed District 117 Stakeholders, We all have been repeatedly tried and challenged over the course of the last three months unlike any time in history. The COVID-19 virus has negatively impacted millions economically, threatened the health of all of us, and taken the lives of too many of our friends and family. Through education and guidance from public health officials, individual as well as collective sacrifices, we have hopefully gotten through the worst of this terrible disease. We have been challenged yet again by a civil crisis. We support our Black community in the face of the racism and injustice that has again come into sharp focus this past week. These injustices are long-standing, as is the pain caused by them. Peaceful protests have been interrupted by violence, property damage, and destruction. Given the confluence of these highly disruptive events, people are understandably grappling with a variety of emotions. Clearly, there is anger, pain, fear, and exhaustion all of which, to some extent, are normal feelings. Navigating these uncertain times can be difficult, however, seeking support from friends and family can make these challenges more manageable. People are vital and the core of a healthy society. I encourage you to support each other and continue to observe the guidance of our public health and law enforcement officials. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Stay safe and healthy, Dr. Jim McKay
