Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- School District 163 reports that the Barack Obama School of Leadership and STEM, 401 Concorde Drive, Chicago Heights, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new atrium, greenhouse and Horticulture Education Center at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 23.

The greenhouse and Horticulture Center will serve as a place for learning for students as well as a place to grow plants and vegetables. Students visited the Chicago Garden and Flower Show this spring and surveyed various nurseries to learn what flowers and vegetables are popular in this area. Students are designing experiments based on the needs of the plants and what enhances growth.

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, visits to the District’s other schools will be conducted. Please contact SD 163 at (708) 668-9422 if you plan to attend.
