Continued on page 4 Music Boosters Fund Raiser The Music Boosters of the Huntley schools will soon be fund-raising by collecting "A Mile of Pennies." Sixteen pennies placed side by side cover one foot, and a mile of pennies—5280 feet—will raise $844.80. These funds will be used to buy or repair color guard uniforms and choir robes. Collection cans will be placed in local stores and services. Students and parents are asked to gather pennies and bring them to the school on the dates of the Junior High Musical and the Spring Concert. An "odometer" will be raised near the band room to keep track of the "distance" covered. Pennies pile up in pockets and purses, cars and cupboards. As collections continue through the summer, you will be able to put pennies to good use and to donate painlessly to our Music Department. By fall of 1990, we hope to have gone the whole mile—inch by inch—to help Huntley music put its best foot forward.

Hun|:ley School Prairie Update Dean Landorf (former Huntley School graduate) runs end loader at Huntley School's future prairie. Dale Pfaff, (former Huntley School graduate) moving gravel with bobcat. The first and most crucial part of creating a prairie at Huntley School was replacing the top layer of gravel with top soil. Fifth grade students did a core test and determined that the top layer was 1 inch gravel, one inch asphalt sealcoat and then a sand-grav«l-soil mixture. Mr. Ed Collins of McHenry County Conservation District felt that removing the top 12 inches would be enough, since prairie plants like gravel. Mr. Frank Mercuri was contacted and agreed to donate soil, but we didn't need it. Mr. Chuck Ruth suggested removing one post to allow access of large machines to do the job more efficiently. On Saturday morning, several Alliance Contractor, Inc. trucks and bulldoeers showed up at 4 A.M. to remove the gravel and asphalt. They worked all day. On Monday morning when a group of fifth graders arrived at 7A.M. with shovels and brooms, they had very little dean up work to do. Alliance employees were rewelding the post, and the job was done. Next week: Where to put the walking path?
