Friends encourage friends to buy tickets, you know they’ll have FOMO once they see all the FUN!

The budget provided by CPS is not enough to support our school’s core curriculum.  This year’s fundraising goals will go towards programming such as Drama partnerships and Social Emotional programs to target mental health; Sports: Purchasing uniforms for all sports teams: soccer, track, cheer; Library: Continue to upgrade our libraries with more books across genres with a focus on cultures represented by our student population. We want to continue to push the love of holding a book. Curriculum: purchase foundational books for early childhood programs.  Your support will help provide financial assistance to our South Loop School to ensure all children develop advanced life skills by supporting programs that foster student leadership, academic rigor, fine arts, social and emotional consciousness, and an understanding and acceptance of diverse cultures in an inclusive environment.
