At the board meeting on November 14, seven students from Brentwood Elementary introduced their new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Club to the board. The club was created to spark interest in STEM concepts and allow students an opportunity to practice various district outcomes that are involved in STEM areas.
The students presented information about the new club, why they joined it, what they hope to learn as a member, and shared their experiences to date. The presenting students also asked the board four interview questions about their own STEM interests and asked the Board members for suggestions they may have for their club.
In honor of Illinois’ School Board Members Day, which was on November 15, 2016, CCSD59 would like to thank its own school board members for the time, effort, concern, and dedication they provide to CCSD59 students, staff, and families every day. Your service to our schools and community is greatly appreciated.
