This summer the Chicago Park District will be offering Arts XIII – a camp for 12-14 year old Chicago residents. The camp runs from Jun 26, 2017 to Aug 11, 10-4pm, Monday through Friday, and will be offered at 3 park centers around the city including Clarendon Park. In addition to outdoor activities like swimming, camps will include art making, field trips to different cultural organizations in the city and a final gallery exhibit! Participants will dance, sing, play, paint, sculpt, draw, create, choreograph, write, and perform alongside resident artists and art groups. It should be a very inspiring and engaging camp, is wildly affordable, and would be perfect for teens who want to do less sports and more arts ;)
There are still have spots available for 12-14 year olds! The cost is $130 for the entire 6 weeks for residents but scholarship are available for students who qualify for reduced lunch. Get information or register.
The application to sign up for preschool opens on Monday, May 15th.
If you have a child who will turn three years old on or before September 1st of 2017, they are eligible to start preschool in September.
Go to www.chicagoearlylearning.org to apply.
Please spread the word to other families that have children that are ready for preschool. We hope to see your child at Peirce preschool in the fall.
What a great day Peirce Day at Hopleaf was!
It's was so good to see our Peirce Village and Andersonville/Edgewater community come together to raise money for our wonderful school. We learned from Michael and Louise at Hopleaf that we raised just over $21,000! These funds will be instrumental for our arts and afterschool programs next year.
Thank you to Michael, Louise and the Hopleaf staff for their generosity and passion for our school.
