At Gale, we seek to change the existing narrative about community schools within Chicago. We could easily have chosen to brand ourselves as a place that's selective and non-inclusive of all students, families, partners, and the like. Instead we see the value and resources within this great community. Our school is an anchor for Rogers Park students and residents. Therefore, this COMMUNITY is our key lever in becoming a level 1+ school by 2020!
Partners work with us to leverage resources, and give of their own time and talent, to support our school's mission and vision for the future. Our partners understand the demands of our community and they care deeply about the experiences of our children. They also believe that we can reduce poverty and maximize potential if we are willing to work; TOGETHER. A community partner would agree that, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” Henry Ford
Sponsors invest in our journey with confidence. They know that every seed that they sow, will reap bountiful opportunities for our students. Given the generosity of our sponsors, we appreciate all donations to ensure that we achieve our goal in becoming a level one school. With your help we can grow our kids and make education an experience that changes their lives and impacts the greater community. In the words of Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, We make a life by what we give!”
Volunteers COMMIT to working in direct contact with our students, families, partners, and other community members. They are the people who love working on the front lines and live out our mission. Our volunteers have shown a willingness to tutor, conduct after school programs, host parent events, or put together games during recess for kids. There are endless opportunities to serve and we need your helping hands to cultivate the soil of our school. We thank you in advance!
