Raise the Sails was a smashing success!

Last Saturday's Friends of Amundsen event raised more than $92,000 for Amundsen. Wow! We are amazed by the generosity of the Amundsen community, and we thank you, thank you, thank you on behalf of all the students who will benefit! GO VIKINGS!

**You can still donate to Raise the Sails!**

Give to Fund-a-Need here:


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.
