Governor Quinn has declared 15 counties in Illinois state disaster areas following the severe storms that spawned 25 confirmed tornadoes in the Land of Lincoln. Arlyn School is helping victims of the large storm system that caused multiple funnel clouds to touch down in cities throughout Illinois.

School will not be in session November 27th, 28th or 29th in celebration of Thanksgiving. Classes will resume Monday, December 2nd.
Thanksgiving has been an annual tradition in the United States since 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the final Thursday in November to be a national day of “thanksgiving.”
Arlyn students in Biology and Ecology classes participated in their first virtual field trip to Boston’s Museum of Science. The live webcast gave students and teachers across the country an opportunity to explore the world through the lens of engineering. Classes were encouraged to submit questions and have them answered in real-time. Arlyn students and staff submitted several questions, and one was answered during the LIVE event!
“This event will explore the natural and human-made world through the lens of engineering. We’ll be visiting STEM-tastic exhibits like a Van de Graaff generator, a machine that makes indoor lightning. We’ll also provide a sneak peak of the Hall of Human Life, a brand-new exhibit opening in November. Its role is to highlight breakthroughs in biology and biotechnology.” - Learn more at siemensstemacademy.com
