Edison Regional Gifted Center Local School Council Meeting

Thomas A. Edison Regional Gifted Center

4929 North Sawyer, Chicago, IL

Wednesday November 30 2011

6:30 p.m.

The next LSC meeting is one of my favorite meetings of the year, because it showcases the work of Edison students. Scheduled for Wednesday, November 30, the meeting will begin with short presentations from the 5th and 7th grade winners of the ERGC Science Fair. If you are the parent of a younger student at Edison, this is a great way to preview the extraordinary work your students will be doing in the upper grades. Every year I am astonished at the high level of scientific inquiry that goes into these projects. Many of our science fair winners go on to the city and state levels every year, so not only is this a great opportunity to see all the projects at our school, but to preview projects that may go on to these larger competitions.

As part of the Local School Council’s ongoing effort to provide opportunities to learn more about our school system, we will have a special speaker at the November 30th meeting. Our new O’Hare network chief, Isabel Mesa-Collins, will address the LSC and discuss current topics relevant to our program, such as implementation of the Common Core Curriculum. Edison currently has a rigorous and accelerated curriculum that is designed for our unique student population. It will be interesting to explore how to retain the customized aspects of our program while integrating the Common Core standards.
