Time to BOOST Amundsen Music!

The Amundsen music program follows new safety protocols that prohibit students from sharing instruments and require expensive PPE. As a result, the music program has a severe shortage of band instruments and a long list of PPE needs. We need your help to make sure every student can play an instrument every day!

The 4th Annual Friends of Amundsen Back to School Boost will help fund the immediate needs of the music program to obtain additional instruments, as well as PPE to ensure the safety of our students. The goal is to raise $20,000 or more by September 30. Please donate at the level of your choice and contribute to the success of our music program for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. Thank you for your generosity as we help to cultivate the next Mozart, Lady Gaga, or Louis Armstrong!

Get Your COVID-19 Vaccine!

CPS clinics will be offering the Pfizer vaccine for CPS students 12 and older and their family members. The vaccine is FREE, SAFE, and EFFECTIVE at protecting individuals against COVID-19. As COVID cases start to increase again throughout the city and we are just 6 weeks away from the start of school, vaccinating our communities NOW is more important than ever.
More info can be found at www.cps.edu/vaccinations.
