[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1799] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING EISENHOWER ACADEMY ______ HON. BILL FOSTER of illinois in the house of representatives Thursday, December 11, 2014 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. ____________________
