Pershing School is the recipient of the coveted IL ASCD Whole Child School award. This recognition is presented to one school per year and we're very excited that Pershing is the proud owner of this year's award. The Whole Child School Award is presented to a school for their development of the whole child: a child who is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. The Illinois Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development chooses one school in the state of Illinois for this award. Congratulations Pershing!!
Il ASCD selected one school for overall recognition and five schools that have achieved recognition in a specific tenet of the Whole Child. The overall recognized school will be recommended to ASCD for their annual Whole Child Vision in Action Whole Child Award.
All of the schools recognized by IL ASCD were honored at a presentation ceremony at theIL ASCD Conference on Learning & Expo on October 27, 2016 at the Roosevelt University Schaumburg Campus.
