  Mr. FOSTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of Eisenhower Academy 
in Joliet, Illinois, which was ranked the best elementary school in 
Will County by the Chicago Tribune.
  I would like to recognize the teachers, administrators, and students 
of this magnet school for their commitment to learning. The rankings 
were based on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) and found 
that over 94 percent of students in grades three through five met or 
exceeded expectations.
  Although 100 percent of the students at the school come from low-
income families, through hard work and with the support of teachers and 
parents, these students have already achieved something remarkable. I 
look forward to following their progress.
  Congratulations to Eisenhower Academy and Joliet Public Schools 
District 86. I would like to thank the teachers, administrators, 
parents and students for their hard work and dedication.
