All several of our children attended Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, IL. My fiance as well as I also graduated from Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, IL, but the school has been open since the 1950s, and before the section was a school, the locale was surrounded by cornfields, Forest land, as well as a lake. The school board chose the name of the school after the poet Carl Sandburg. It is 1 of the only public schools in Orland Park. The school does actually well in sports as well as academics, and all several of our children played Sports in school. The last child graduated a couple of years ago. Mary was on the volleyball as well as the basketball team, then during 1 of the last basketball games of the year, our fiance as well as I had to rest through 1 of the coldest indoor matches. It was the end of the season as well as close to choosing teams for the district finals. There was no heat in the gym, but both teams chose to play the basketball game. Most of the people cheering for the teams were bundled up because of the lack of heat. The game was seriously close as well as I did not want to leave for a moment. My fiance went outside to the automobile a couple of times so she could moderate up with the oil furnace running. At the end of the game, Orland Park out-scored the visiting team as well as went on to play in the district finals game. The two of us did not have to worry about the heat at that game, because it was held at the nearby college gymnasium.
