About Faraday Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2015.
- Located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 341 students.
- 99% of the school population is African American. 98% come from low-income households.
- The Faraday Falcons are very serious when it comes to scrimmaging. Picking positions and keeping score is super important to this team, but no matter who wins, they always give high fives and compliments to the other team. The players show great sportsmanship and respect to one another on and off the field.
- A new Work to Play school this spring, Faraday’s players are already showing their commitment to and love of the soccer team. At 7:30 AM the team is ready to start warm ups and participate in their favorite game: Dog Catcher.
