About Howe Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2012.
- Located in the Austin neighborhood in Chicago and has 629 students.
- 96% of the school population is African American. 98% come from low-income households.
- Howe starts every practice with their UI-famous relay races. This routine ensures practices start with high energy, and the winners get bragging rights for the day.
- A group of veterans from Howe’s Work to Play team started a 5th-6th grade school soccer team to compete against teams from other CPS schools. This is the first time Howe has ever had its own school soccer team, and Urban Initiatives could not be more excited that the team was founded by current Take the Lead Team Captains.
