Posted by Janet Bishop on 1/3/2019

jan Nelson had a special guest on December 17: Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, whose 9th District includes the school, stopped by to visit. She had a full agenda, reading to 1st and 3rd grade classrooms, chatting with students (in English and Spanish), and fielding hard-hitting questions from 4th graders about government and what it's like to be an elected official.

The Congresswoman, who graduated from the University of Illinois in 1965 with a B.S. in elementary education, is serving her 10th term in Congress.
