Parent Advisory Council (PAC) Presents Parent Series: “A Virtual Conversation About College Application Essays,”

Parents, join Amundsen's Parent Advisory Council (PAC) on Tuesday, September 13, at 6pm, for “A Virtual Conversation About College Application Essays,” presented by Amy F. Williamson. For the last decade, Amy has been teaching high school seniors locally and across the U.S. how best to tell their own unique stories in college application essays. Registration is required for this session.


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.
