A huge thanks to Principal Shelton and Coach Doyle for getting SLES into the CPS Basketball program this year and for all the support and help along the way. It was a great season for the teams and whether the student was playing basketball for first time or was a more seasoned player, each kid improved throughout the season and more importantly experienced team building and comradery.
