THANK YOU, CUBS CHARITIES!

One of the best moments from Raise the Sails was receiving a $25,000 School All-Star Grant from our generous neighbor and supporter, Cubs Charities. Cubs Assistant Director of Government and Community Affairs Heather Way Kitzes presented the jumbo check to Amundsen Principal Anna Pavichevich at the DANK Haus, giving us even more to celebrate that night. A portion of the funds will support Amundsen’s new batting cages, and the rest will support educational programs for all Amundsen students. Thank you, Cubs Charities, for your ongoing support of Amundsen–it makes a huge difference for our students and our entire school community.

Amundsen String Ambassadors help launch a new orchestra program at McPherson Elementary

Amundsen's String Ambassadors, under the direction of AHS Orchestra teacher, Mr. Sean Reidy, recently helped to launch yet another orchestra mentoring program at McPherson Elementary School. This partnership builds on an existing partnership with Chappell Elementary, where an autonomous group of of 12 Viking String Ambassadors regularly teaches strings to Chappell students. We appreciate the support of A440 Violins, the Friends of McPherson, the Friends of Amundsen, the Nagaunee Institute, and the Civic Orchestra of the CSO, for their support of the neighborhood school music programs that make these partnerships possible.
