On Tuesday, July 31, CEO Jean-Claude Brizard called CPS parents to personally remind them that the first day of school is right around the corner. Track E schools start on Monday, August 13; click here for a full list of Track E schools.
If you’re interested in making calls like CEO Brizard did, CPS is hosting phone bank drives targeting Track E parents now through August 10. Starting August 20 through the end of the month, the District will be doing the same for Track R parents.
There are two locations to make calls:
- Central Office; 125 S. Clark Street
- Zenos Colman Elementary School; 4655 S. Dearborn Street
Signing up is easy, and you can choose your day and time. So please sign up today at cpsbacktoschool2012.eventbrite.com, for the Central Office location, and at cpsbacktoschool2012colman.eventbrite.com, for the Coleman Elementary phone bank. You can also call our hotline at (773) 553-3277.
Volunteering your time making calls would be greatly appreciated and you'll be helping our CPS students!
And be sure to purchase a Kit for Kidz for CPS students via our offer in partnership with Groupon. Over 1,000 Kits for Kidz have already been purchased and we are on track to surpass the total number of kits sold last year. Thank you all for your generosity.
