About Jordan Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2015.
- Located in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago and has 604 students.
- 58% of the school population is hispanic and 37% is African American. 96% come from low-income households.
- Coach Beard teaches many of the players on Jordan’s team, and he often gives his players nicknames from lessons in school. For example, at a practice earlier this spring, the players found their names replaced with those of Greek gods they were studying in class. Few other teams can claim to have Zeus, Athena, and Hermes on their roster.
- One of Jordan’s players is well known in the Urban Initiatives office for his incredible Arnold Schwarzenegger impression. Seriously, he may have a future at SNL.
