Lincoln-Way North High School recently honored its top academic students and shared information about an anti-bullying campaign under way at the school during the annual Breakfast with the Principal event.

Each year, Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210’s building principals invite parents to the schools to meet staff and learn more about the school and its programs.

At L-Way North’s event, members of the school’s anti-bullying group P.L.E.D.G.E. (Phoenix Leading Each Other, Dedicated to Goodwill Everywhere) talked to parents about a campaign they launched to end bullying. Students were then encouraged to sign an anti-bullying pledge. Students who signed the pledge received T-shirts that read, “Not In Our House,” with a slash across the word “Bullying.”

After the presentation, Principal Michael Gardner introduced the school’s Top 10 academic students.

Top 10 seniors include Nicholas Bielanski, Caitlin Broderick, Christian Gorski, Joshua Kim, Samantha Klosak, Rachel Lahr, Michael Lanigan, Matthew Murray, Lauren Sajewich and Jennifer Zobak.

Top 10 juniors include Michael Balcerzak, Erin Creedon, Calvin Duong, Zubair Farooqui, Jack Quirk, Katherine Reynolds, John Scott, Savanna Steck, Nicole Suhm and Elizabeth Warkocki.

Top 10 sophomores included Ryan Arnold, Alison DeBruyn, Abigail Greenwood, Justine Ivanov, Joyce Kim, Payton Lang, Nina Pelsi Laura Rovak, Nora Ward and Devin Werner.

“We thank you parents for the great job you’ve done,” Gardner told parents during the event. “Your students are here today because of you.”
