School News   (2)
Dress for the low, not the high

While the weather is getting warmer, it is still fluctuating wildly! Even if you see a high in the forecast above 60 please send your child with layers and long pants. When they go out for snack at 10 am it may still be in the 40’s or 50’s, not to mention forecasts are not always entirely accurate. We appreciate your support in keeping the kids healthy and warm!

Summer Camp for EC and Grade School Available for Sign-Up Now!

Curious Question   (1)
What's going on in Cricket Hall?

The 6th and 7th graders are building 4 sea-worthy (or at least river-worthy) boats.  They’re starting with small models and working up to the full size in a block that will end on the Chicago River!  Interested in following along?  I’ll post regular updates on instagram.
