Birch Grove Elementary School for the Arts Named National Magnet School of Excellence by Magnet Schools of America.

  

January 2019

Birch Grove Elementary School for the Arts has been named a National Magnet School of Excellence by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.

At Birch Grove, students learn through their passion for the arts. We provide gifted education, vocal music, band, and orchestra. A special musical production is produced each year. Enrollment is by application through the Northwest Suburban Integration School District. Our staff includes art, drama, music and curriculum integration specialists. You can find out more about Birch Grove by visiting our web page!                        

Dr. Salazar will be recognized and receive a National Magnet School of Excellence Merit Award on behalf of the school during an awards ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 37th National Conference hosted by Baltimore County Public Schools in Baltimore, Maryland April 10-13, 2019.

Magnet School of Excellence Awards are only given to a select group of magnet schools. Schools of Excellence are eligible to receive monetary awards and are eligible to be named the nation’s top Elementary, Secondary, or New & Emerging Magnet School. One of the Schools of Excellence will also be selected to win $5,000 and the Dr. Ronald P. Simpson Distinguished Merit Award, which is considered the most prestigious magnet school award in the nation.

To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.

BIRCH GROVE ELEMENTARY TURNS TO CROWDFUNDING SITE FOR SUPPLIES

When 4th grade teacher, Becky Mallory wanted a special rug for her classroom, she turned to a crowdfunding site called Donors Choose. Besides bringing more ambiance to the room, the rug also assists students in learning. The large, bright rug, is made in the shape of a map of the United States.

Although Birch Grove has a large number of students on free or reduced lunch, the school doesn’t meet the requirements to get extra money through the Title I program.  Media Specialist Lanica Klein is spearheading the crowdfunding efforts at the school this year.  She recently successfully funded a book project. 

Klein has two new projects on the site: one will buy more hardcover books about diversity. While the other will buy bee robots, so students can learn to code.
