Mr. Wayne Benos has exemplary commitment to coaching the IHS/IMS Mock Trial teams with Dr. Rick Fierer. Mr. Benos has been attending one to two meetings per week for the entire school year as the mock trial legal advisor for six years. In his role as legal advisor for the Mock Trial, he coaches students in courtroom etiquette, oration, questioning, and delivery of statements. Going beyond this, he also reads and analyzes the Mock Trial case materials outside of practice. Mr. Benos coordinates scrimmages against other schools, and attends the official competitions for middle and high school each year. He provides constructive criticism and encouragement throughout the Mock Trial process, aiding students of all levels in achieving their potential. This year, Mr. Benos and Dr. Fierer have coached the high school team all the way to regionals! We appreciate the work Mr. Benos has done for the Mock Trial team and hope we continue to be fortunate enough to work with him in the future. [...click for more]

Our #IPrideStars of the Week are James Kundmueller and Alec Coutris. On a morning when the weather conditions were cold and icy, these two gentlemen came to the aid of a teacher in the parking lot. The teacher was parked on a huge sheet of ice and when she tried to get out of her car she realized she wouldn't be able to walk on the ice safely. Without hesitation, these two boys quickly came over to her car and helped her not only out of the car, but also walked with her across the ice so that she didn't fall and get hurt. It showed what considerate and conscientious boys they are! Great job to both of them for being the good samaritans we hope all our students turn out to be!  [...click for more]
