Community Events to engage the head, heart, & hands

Our Community Summer Activities

We hope everyone is enjoying summer break. While our classes are completed for now, the school still remains active throughout the summer.

Here are some fun family friendly events coming up that you might be interested in:

• Sun, June 26th: Walk in the 2011 Pride Parade

Last year was a blast and we can’t wait to do it again! We will have a parent marching band accompanying our student and parent walkers and for those who’d prefer to participate in shade and comfort we offer seats on our own CWS school bus. Come join us as we present our school pride and honor the diversity of our school families with Chicago’s LGBT Community in Chicago.

• Mon, July 4th: Walk in the Evanston July 4th Parade

The week before the parade, we will be building a float in northwest Evanston from 9:00am – 12:00pm, Monday, June 27th through Friday, July 1st. Bring your family, your enthusiasm and your building tools. After the parade, there will be even more fun. The Hartman’s will be hosting a pot-luck and have invited everyone to stay and watch the fireworks that evening.

• If festivals are more your style, CWS will also have booths at the Folk & Roots Festival, Glenwood Arts Festival and the Renegade Craft Fair. Parent volunteers have traditionally helped staff the booths and CWS student volunteers take an active role in teaching Fair participants how to knit, felt and build small craft projects.

Come and participate this summer!! Walk with us in the parades. Join us for a few hours at the fairs.

We love getting together as a community, having a great time and showing our school pride to Chicago.

If you and your kids would like to sign up to participate in a CWS summer event please contact Jennifer Zielinski at 773-828-8468 or
