We are excited to announce that the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) has partnered with the District 186 to sponsor IMSA FUSION. This after-school math/science enrichment program is for students who are talented, interested, and motivated in science and mathematics.

The program will involve a commitment to attend sessions after school from 2:30-4:00 p.m. Fridays, October 8 through May.
Invitations to apply were given to students this today.

An informational meeting for those students who received an invitation will be Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. in the LMS Gymnasium

Thirty students from grades 7-8 will then be selected. Student selection will be based upon the following criteria:
*Teacher recommendation;
*Academic performance;
*ISAT performance;
*A student essay stating interest in the program.

At the informational meeting you will learn more about the program and the activities for the students, and you will be able to pick up an application packet.
