Thank you for your support! Let’s get to the finish line.

Dear South Loop Families,

We want to express our gratitude to all of our amazing SLES families and kudos to the participants to the Lion Pride Fun Run/Walk. Over 200 participants…What a turnout! If you have photos to share please upload to our google album: Lion Pride Fun Run 2021

But we’re not done! We are on track to reaching, even go over and beyond, our highest fundraising goal ever. As of this evening, we are at 87% of our $30k goal.

As we push toward our finish line, there are 3 ways you can support and help us reach our goal by #givingTuesday!


We are excited to launch a raffle with amazing gifts donated by parents. Purchase entries from now until Friday, November 26th to get registered for the drawing. Each entry has a chance to win any of the listed items below, featuring grand prize of semi-private boat rental and an AirBnB stay in Michigan.


From now (as of 6pm today) until 11:59pm on #GivingTuesday, November 30th, a donor has pledged to match donations made on that day up to $2,500. Make your year end tax deductible donation* now & don’t miss the opportunity to double your donation on #GivingTuesday!


Share with your friends and family over your Thanksgiving gatherings!
