The project area includes two archaic period sites dating from 3,500 to 10,000 years ago. The sites were found during a survey done by the Midwest Archeological Research Services (MARS) as part of the pre- development of the area for construction. The dig is offered in cooperation with MARS. To participate in the dig you must register for two courses, ATR 230 Field Archeology, a three-credit course, and ATR 180 Lab Methods in Archeology, also a three-credit course. The classes will be combined for all-day outdoor site work from 8:30 am to 4 pm Monday through Thursday, with a break for lunch. The students can expect to find stone tools and instruments used to make the tools. They will excavate, sort, wash and inventory the artifacts, as well as count, weigh and describe their findings. Students also will search for fire pits and storage pits that will indicate what the people ate, as well as preserved bones, both human and animal. There will be informal lectures at the site so students can understand what they are doing and discovering. All artifacts found in the dig will be curated at Northwestern University.

By Barb Schmidt On may 16th the entire first grade class of Huntley Grade School did two performances of the "Wizard of Oz" play. In just a few short months these 135 first graders did a fantastic job at mastering dialogue, songs, and a number of dance movements. Their costumes were delightful and so "authentic" as to fit the various characters they portrayed. Through these months of practice, the students were guided under the direction of their five teachers - Mrs DeLuga, Mrs Juergensen, Miss Komos, Mrs Kowalski, and Mrs Volkening. The music direction of the play was by Mrs Tirk, grade school Choral Director. Thanks so much to all of you for the excellent work you did with the students! Behind the scenes many parents helped with costume making, prop building, and many more jobs - too numerous to mention. We wish to thank each and every one of you for your help and assistance in making this play the success that it was! Congratulations to all of you first grade students on a job well done! We're so very proud of you! Caramel Day a Sweet Success By Joyce Liput, Lioness The Huntley Lioness enjoyed a beautiful day for the annual Caramel Day on Friday, May 3.
