Teenagers in Uptown have a unique summer job at Winthrop Harmony Arts Garden as they work for Green Scene Chicago, adapting an Iroquois legend, growing their stage set from seeds, and playing the show FREE to young audiences in the garden. With music, puppetry, audience participation, and Native American sign language, their play Imparts the Haudenoshaunee wisdom of planting corn, beans, and squash (the three sisters) together and joyfully expresses how supporting one another and communication are key to growing strong. Audiences will also see this planting in the garden, have a tasting of the three sisters, and take home free corn.

Friends of Peirce researched several companies that offer school supply fundraisers and found that Yubbler offers the winning combination of low prices for parents and donates 50% of their profits directly to Peirce.
Even better, when you purchase your supplies between July 10-July 24, you can receive an additional 10% savings when you use the coupon code SUMMER and use their link to post to Facebook.
Yubbler is super easy to use - select your child's grade for the 2017-2018 school year, and you'll see the items Peirce teachers put on the school supply list for the grade.
Items from the list of Supplies Sent Home are shipped directly to your home.
Additional List Items include items which you may or may not need if you already own them. This includes items such as scissors, but it also includes the option to donate supplies for students who may not be able to afford them.
Items from the list of Classroom Supplies are shipped directly to Peirce, so you don't have to lug them to school on the first day; and you can also pay your child's Student Fee on the Buy Separately list.
For many category you have options of style and color.

A Makerspace is a creative, DIY space where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. The Kickstarter to fund Peirce's Makerspace will purchase all kinds of fun things designed to spark our kids' creativity - materials such as electrical paint, inventor kits, squishy circuits - and provide them with opportunities to develop the STEM skills needed to meet the evolving needs of the job market or succeed as a startup.
We are fortunate to be part of a national program with MakerEd and Google to bring maker education to schools. Thanks to the help from the Digital Youth Network at DePaul University, we have been able to work on a strategy to bring making to our students at Peirce.
The Makerspace is building on the existing student interest in Robots.
The original goal of $1,500 to fund this Kickstarter was met by a very generous donor. The campaign goal has been updated and we are now aiming for $3,000 to fund all of Phase 1.
This is an All-or-Nothing fundraiser, meaning we only receive the funds if we reach our fundraising goal by the deadline of August 3, 2017 at 12:30 pm CST.
Beginning this week, 7th grade families will receive the first critical piece of high school application material when we deliver Activation Codes (previously called PINs) to schools. These Activation Codes will be used to create your GoCPS high school application accounts and access your student’s high school program eligibility information in August 2017. This will give you as much as a two month early start on the application process!
Activation Codes will be delivered to school counselors between June 8 and June 14, and they will be distributed to students to bring home. Delivery date ranges for Activation Code letters are estimated based on the schedule of the CPS Warehouse and actual delivery dates will vary by school. Please save this Activation Code in an easy-to-find location until August.
In the meantime, make sure to visit go.cps.edu and subscribe to the site today!
By subscribing, you will receive notices and reminders when key functions of the application process are opened to the public, including a notice in August 2017 to use your Activation Code to create your GoCPS account.
