MannPower Summer Session!

Mann Summer Bump Up. This summer program will offer advanced math and reading for students who are between the 80th – 95th percentiles, and who with additional, small group instruction, may accelerate their command of challenging math and/or reading concepts.

For our students at the 80th percentile or below on MAP math tests, we expect to continue the Mann Factor during the school year. Space will be limited for this summer program.

Girls on the Run - Registration is open! 

Register your 3rd, 4th or 5th grader for Girls on the Run here: www.gotrchicago.org

Each girl that registered will be automatically entered into a random draw lottery. The lottery will be run the week before the season begins. Any remaining spots switch to first come; first serve after the lottery is run. Parents will be notified whether their daughter has been added to the team or put on the waiting list by an email from the online system. If the girl was chosen from the lottery, their credit card will be charged at that time. If the girl is not chosen from the lottery, their credit card will not be charged.
