Our Mission

To prepare our students with the knowledge and skills to maintain a life-long healthy life-style.

          We had our March Madness tournament right before spring break.  Students had a good time playing in the various tournaments we offered.  We had 3 on 3 basketball, 4 square, spike ball and bags tournaments.  ALL proceeds go to help support the Ink 180 mission, the LTM foundation and back to benefit directly the Plainfield North student body.

          The Lifeskills classes & Skills for Healthy Living classes had a YMCA instructor come in and teach a pound class, Alyson Yates.  This is a work out to music using drum sticks, called a pound workout.  Students had fun and experienced a different way to get some exercise in. 

          On March 14th we had the LTM foundation come in and speak to the sophomore students in Health, Driver Education and Physical Education classes.  The speakers are amazing and discuss addiction.  Please check out their website for more information:
