Thank you for your continued support to raise funds for our great school!
From the press release: “Our children deserve equal treatment. Since 2009, CPS has accounted for nearly 20 percent of state enrollment,” Claypool said. “If we simply got our fair share – 20 percent of funding – we would receive an additional $458 million this fiscal year alone, eliminating the budget gap that is threatening to derail our school year.” Read the full release with CEO Forrest Claypool's speech here. CPS is encouraging stakeholders to take action, and additional parent advocacy resources can be found at IL Raise Your Hand. Read Principal Crespo's post about the budget crisis here.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Mrs. Nissim only needs only a little over $100 to fund the much needed document camera. She would really appreciate any help to reach the finish line! Please look for the project, "The Write to Learn" on her Donors Choose website and make a donation.
