Great big thank you to EVERYONE who attended our Achievement Celebration! It was an honor to recognize the youth, families, CPS staff and community! Check out some pics below:
We’d like to thank Dr. Janice Jackson, CEO of Chicago Public Schools for attending the event and acknowledging the local Native American community here in Chicago! Not only did she provide Opening Remarks, but also took the time to meet with families and students. We truly value the relationships we have cultivated with CPS Leadership and know that they will continue to collaborate with us to increase our program’s outreach and awareness.
