  • Beautifying Spry Elementary School
    John Spry Elementary School is a school in the Little Village/Marshall Square community in the city of Chicago. It has some of the most wonderful and culturally rich student body in the city. The school serves about 800 low-income students in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Chicago.  The Chicago Public Schools(CPS) has made major budget cuts that has drastically limited resources at our school. Despite these cuts, we have persevered and have reached a Level 2 rating. We are actively searching for fundraising opportunities to support our idea to beautify the interior of the school building. This will promote a positive learning ambiance in which the student’s will feel a sense of pride and ownership of their school. We are asking for your support. 

    We are hoping to raise $6,000 to paint the interior of our school. The school is in dire need of a makeover and we would like your help. The funding will only cover the materials.  The labor would be provided by volunteers that will include teachers, parents, friends, and students.

    Our goal is to raise the funds by end of the school year. It is our hope to start the following school year with a freshly painted building. This will also serve as a symbolic fresh start and provide a positive learning environment for our students.

    We appreciate your help in accomplishing our educational goals. As a result, our students will be more engaged and committed to learning.


    La Escuela Primaria John Spry es una escuela en la comunidad de Little Village / Marshall Square en la ciudad de Chicago. Tiene algunos de los estudiantes más maravillosos y culturalmente ricos en la ciudad. La escuela sirve a cerca de 800 estudiantes de bajos ingresos en uno de los barrios más difíciles de Chicago. Las Escuelas Públicas de Chicago (CPS) han hecho importantes recortes presupuestarios que han reducido drásticamente los recursos en nuestra escuela. A pesar de estos recortes, hemos perseverado y hemos alcanzado una calificación de Nivel 2. Estamos buscando oportunidades de recaudación de fondos para apoyar nuestra idea de embellecer el interior del edificio de la escuela. Esto promoverá un ambiente de aprendizaje positivo en el que el estudiante sentirá un sentido de orgullo por su escuela. Estamos pidiendo su apoyo.

    Esperamos recaudar $ 6,000 para pintar el interior de nuestra escuela. La escuela está en extrema necesidad de un cambio de imagen y nos gustaría su ayuda. La financiación sólo cubrirá los materiales. La mano de obra sería proporcionada por voluntarios que incluirán maestros, padres, amigos y estudiantes.

    Nuestra meta es recaudar los fondos para el final del año escolar. Es nuestra esperanza comenzar el próximo año escolar con un edificio recién pintado. Esto también servirá como un nuevo comienzo simbólico y proporcionará un ambiente de aprendizaje positivo para nuestros estudiantes.

    Agradecemos su ayuda para lograr nuestros objetivos educativos. Como resultado, nuestros estudiantes estarán más comprometidos y comprometidos con el aprendizaje.
