CPS

and programs available throughout the district and to showcase the amazing
talents of our dedicated teachers and students,

In

inspired her to becoming the performing artist she has become today.

The

and teachers incorporate multicultural themes in unexpected ways, even
in environmental science class.

CPS 6th graders selected for their exceptional math skills,

their own buildings from start to finish.

Each
