About Attucks Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2006.
- Located in the Hamlin Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 132 students.
- 100% of the school population is African American. 99% come from low-income households.
- Attucks was one of the first schools to offer the Work to Play program. After nine years, the program will come to an end after this season. Attucks will be closing at the end of the year, and the students will transfer to other schools in the area.
- The team here absolutely loves the games “Star Wars” and “Crazy Crabs”. The coaches use these games to get the kids warmed up for almost every practice.
