Estimadas familias de VMC, El 10 de mayo le informamos que el Departamento de Administración del Agua de la Ciudad de Chicago comenzaría la construcción para comenzar a instalar una nueva tubería de agua alrededor de nuestro campus. Esto incluye la tubería de agua ubicada en la calle 47. Es posible que ya haya notado la construcción en curso en S. Kedvale, S. Kolin y S. Keeler Avenues. La construcción comenzó esta tarde y ha comenzado a afectar el tráfico. Espere cierres de carriles y mayor congestión tanto en la llegada como en la salida. Por favor permita tiempo adicional para la llegada y el despido. Aunque actualmente no tenemos una fecha de finalización para la construcción, nuestra comunidad escolar debe anticipar que 47th Street se verá afectada por este proyecto de construcción durante los próximos meses. La construcción comenzará diariamente a las 7:00 a.m. Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes, comuníquese con la Oficina del Honorable Ed Burke (14th Ward Office) al 773.471.1414 y haga referencia al Proyecto Principal de Agua # 0501109. Sinceramente, Director Allen

Welcome to Acero

 Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year.  As we begin this new year, we also begin a new chapter in the history of our organization as we become Acero Schools with the start of the school year on Aug. 14.
Acero means “steel” in Spanish – it evokes strength, resilience, and the enduring impact that this maturing collective of high-performing charter schools, outstanding educators and professionals, and inspiring alums, students and families embody.
We are excited about this name change and the chance to forge a new identity – one that charts our future, not our past.  We began as one school serving one community and have grown into a respected network of 15 schools, serving multiple communities across Chicago. The new name honors our roots within the Latino community, recognizes the strong foundation that has been built over nearly two decades, and fortifies the network so that it can continue to reach even higher.
Our new name also helps dispel any confusion over former affiliations.
Although we are turning the page on UCSN, our story doesn’t end here.  We will move forward as Acero Schools with the same commitment to high-quality education and a mission dedicated to transforming minds and launching the next generation of extraordinary life-long learners, discerners and doers. Thank you for your dedication, passion and your partnership as we write the next chapter.
