With the start of May comes the anticipation of warmer weather, holidays, and the excitement of just 6 short weeks until summer break! And despite the temptation of trips to the beach and block parties, Chicago Cares students are excited for the special events planned at their programs. Here is a look at just a few of the fun events scheduled in the coming weeks:  

Students at Young School are super excited for their last day of reading, cooking, science experiments and more on May 5th and can’t wait to go bowling on May 19th.

Students at Sherwood School are celebrating the school year with a bowling trip on May 5th.

If you’d like to volunteer on May 12, be sure to check out the programs at Henderson Elementary that day; students will be participating in a field trip to see To the Arctic at the IMAX Theater at Navy Pier.

At Brunson Math & Science School, lots of great art projects and reading activities are scheduled for May 5th and May 19th; a special party will kick-off the summer on June 2nd.

Healthy Start at Bethel New Life is super excited for their trip to the Kids Table on May 23rd. Come meet the students on May 9th and join us for the field trip on May 23rd.  

McCormick Elementary will celebrate the end of their school year with a field day of outdoor activities on May 12 and a field trip to the Brookfield Zoo on May 19.

We hope that you can celebrate the end of the school year with Chicago Cares!
