Friday, October 14, 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.:  Join us for a charter school visit!

You are invited to join EMSA in touring the Instituto Health Science Career Academy in Chicago.  This charter school is a part of the Instituto del Progreso Latino, 2520 S. Western Avenue, Chicago, IL 60608.  What is so exciting about the Instituto high school, is that it has a science focus and prepares students for careers in the medical field.  Also, we will be spending some time with Instituto’s President and CEO, Juan Salgado, a 2016 MacArthur genius grant recipient.  He’ll be sharing his experiences and advice on starting a charter school and engaging the community.  Learn more about Mr. Salgado here:  https://www.macfound.org/fellows/945/

7:15-7:30  meet at 838 Douglas Ave

7:30 depart by car for Chicago

9:00 arrive at Instituto

9:00-11:00 tour and visit with Juan Salgado

We will carpool to Instituto.  Let us know if you can drive.  Please let us know if you can attend by TUESDAY (Oct. 11) evening, so that we can plan accordingly.  We are looking forward to this exciting and educational adventure!  Hope you can be a part of it!   Email your YES RSVP:  ElginCSI@gmail.com elgincsi@gmail.com
