Parent involvement is not only important to a student’s growth, but also to the school’s growth. Friends of Jahn has a variety of ways for parents to get involved!
Community support continues to be tremendous and influential in Jahn’s transformation into a level 1 school. A strong, active community is building a stronger Jahn. We are committed! Help us create a brighter future for our neighborhood school.
Sponsorships are crucial to the success of our events. They allow us to maximize the profit of the event and give more money back to the school to fund necessary programs not accounted for in the CPS per pupil budget. We offer a variety of price levels to accommodate any budget.
We are asking neighbors to help with funding the needed improvements to the playground and landscaping of Jahn Elementary. The total budget for this enhancement is estimated at $1 million and includes a new playground, turf soccer field, refurbished basketball court, all surrounded by a track. It is the goal of the playground committee to bring the new playground to Jahn in time for the 2018/2019 school year. This is a big task but through sponsorships and neighborhood support, the Friends of Jahn playground committee feels that it can be accomplished.
In the coming months, an informational playground meetings and events will be organized and open to the broader community to learn more about the playground project plan.
