SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 Zi^t JHuntltp fnvm^M HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS Thursday, February 20,1992 - volume 31, number 44 USPS 580-360 Huntley Testathon 3 Raises Record Amount! By Dottie Ross, Huntley PTO Thanks go to all the students who participated in Testathon 31 Your efforts and the generosity of caring people helped make TESTATHON 3 a huge success! Our goal this year w^ a conservative $4,000, but through good times and bad we were able to bring in a grand total of $5,177.69. We will be able to clear way over our estimated proHt goal. All these efforts show people do care for their schools and the education of their young. We at the Huntley PTO, are proud to be a part of a good place to be. We can see that people will do what they can for their school. It didn't just happen! It took a lot of concentrated effort by a few dedicated people to make this all run smoothly. In December, when the economy was looking bad, PTO was very unsure of their pursuits toward this worthwhile program, but through positive reinforcing efforts of people who cared it all came together. The 1991 Song of the Year, "Everything We Do, We Do For Your School!", got Chairperson Dottie Ross going. It soon became the only thing the Testathon Committee could think of for they only had a few short weeks to put this together. Thanks to the efforts by the PTO officers and the Testathon Committee Volunteers we can be proud of our students, our school and a community that cares! The cooperation of these special people made it all a success: Dottie Ross for organizing, theme, costumes, kickoff, props, design, layout, posters, assembly and general enthusiasm; Jackie Kowalczyk for logo design, kick off, work on posters and the showcase; Laurie Norris for help on the showcase, painting of Robin Hood, props and the Maid Marion gown; Linda Mulcahy for collecting pledges daily and tallying; Jan Ruemelin for typing, poster help, certificates and tallying; Loretta Lane, Treasurer, for tabulating all the winners, recounting monies and being supportive; Cheryl Lawerence for getting High School Principal plays King Richard, The Lion Hearted. Pictured above are 6th Grade Winners Joshua Argall, Nicole Mulcahy, "Robin Hood"(Principal Baird) and Chadra Bakley.

Most of all we couldn't forget to thank Robin Hood and King Richard who were Mr. Baird, Grade School Principal, and Mr. Goeglien, High School Principal, for so graciously participating in the activities. We appreciate your efforts to make our school a fun place to learn. Thanks also to all the teachers for their time and support. continued on page 4 Local Doctor Goes To Russia By Tracey Schwartz Dr. Clare Legursky of Huntley Medical Center will be the first medical doctor to work in Russia with an informal exchange program through Woodstock Memorial Hospital.
