Caroline Benjamin, student activities director at Niles North High School, had some exciting news for freshman gathered in the auditorium Wednesday.
ABC7 News has chosen Niles North for a 5:30 a.m. Flyover, and will broadcast live footage of students on the football field, she said.
Dan Toy, a special education teacher, tried to motivate students to show up at the early hour with the promise of 1,200 free donuts, and a pizza party for whichever of the four grade levels has the most students show up.
Students must wear something black to create a cohesive look, and a special 5:15 a.m. activity bus will pick them up. Teachers asked students to stay after school Wednesday to practice their football field formation, which ABC7 will film from the air.
