GSA Bobcats attend a Bulls Game & GSA Forum!

Members of the BOYCP GSA returned to the United Center to celebrate pride night. Our bobcats had to opportunity to participate in a GSA forum/dinner with other GSA clubs across CPS. We would like to give a huge shoutout to Mr.Morrow, Ms. Galvan, Ms.Guven, Ms.Zapotoczny, and Ms.Gonzalez for making it possible. Thank you to BMO Harris Bank and the Chicago Bulls for having us back. The students had a blast!


Congratulations to Ms. Sandoval who was nominated for December’s Teacher of the Month! Ms. Sandoval puts so much time, effort, and energy into creating dynamic lessons that meet the needs of all her individual students, and Ms. Sandoval's students, both past and present, think so highly of her. Ms. Sandoval always exudes positive energy in her classroom and, as a colleague, she is always willing to stop what she is doing to help her co-workers. Whether what you need is a positive affirmation or help with coming up with an engaging lesson, Ms. Sandoval is always happy to help. Thank you for being so awesome!
