About Libby Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2007.
- Located in the New City neighborhood in Chicago and has 473 students.
- 80% of the school population is African American and 19% is hispanic. 99% come from low-income households.
- The soccer culture is very competitive at Libby. Their players have been known to compete harder against each other at scrimmages than they do against other schools on game day.
- At Libby the team never ends practice without playing the numbers game! It's a tradition the kids have grown to love this school year and it's easily their favorite game in the curriculum.
