You're Invited! Grow 47 Press Conference tomorrow Saturday Feb 7th at Amundsen High School

Grow47 Expands Beyond Ward Boundaries

Grow47 is a community led effort founded in 2011 by Alderman Ameya Pawar (47th) to support and strengthen the K-12 educational experience in Chicago’s 47th Ward. This Saturday morning, February 7, the Grow47 initiative will break through ward boundaries to a wider community effort around our neighborhood schools.

Aldermen Patrick O’Connor (40th) and Tom Tunney (44th) are partnering with Alderman Pawar to expand this important neighborhood school initiative to bring greater focus and more resources to the area’s neighborhood high schools: Amundsen and Lake View. A primary goal for the expanded initiative is to reduce or eliminate the stress of CPS’ high school selective enrollment process by ensuring that all students in our community have access to equitable resources and quality educational opportunities in their own neighborhoods.

Please help us launch this important new initiative and bring attention to the need for better-resourced neighborhood high schools for all our children.
