A CPS budget shortfall of $480 million means bigger classes and fewer teachers, disrupting classrooms as early as February. CPS has launched an initiative asking parents and community members to contact their elected officials to ask Springfield for support. Remember there are many other ways to also support our public schools and teachers, at the neighborhood, city, state, and national levels, too! The Raise Your Hand Coalition site is a good place to find news and resources.
Gymwear orders are in! On Friday, November 6 2015, FFO volunteers will sort the orders and distribute them directly to students in class.
If you can assist with sorting and distributing this Friday, November 6th (right after drop-off, should take about 2 hours), or if there’s a problem with your order, please contact Naima or Lisa ASAP.
