About Greene Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2012.
- Located in the McKinley Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 615 students.
- 91% of the school population is hispanic. 97% come from low-income households.
- With the popularity of Work to Play at Greene, it has been an amazing year so far! Students have an intense love for soccer, learn about leading healthy lifestyles, and practice being awesome people to everyone in the world! Greene’s players do this by using freeze moments during game days; they pause the action when they see something disrespectful and practice what they learn during their discussions on the field.
- Greene’s players are well known for singing on the bus. They sure love to belt out Top 40 songs on game days, even before practice starts.
