About Reavis Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2009.
- Located in the Kenwood neighborhood in Chicago and has 256 students.
- 96% of the school population is African American. 97% come from low-income households.
- At the end of every practice the Team Captains from Reavis (in the orange jerseys above) challenge Coach Bryant at basketball. The games are competitive, and it’s always 50-50 as to who will win, but Bryant says these games have been a great way for him to connect with the older players.
- The Reavis students favorite game to play is "Dog Catcher”, an Urban Initiatives classic. The team asks to play it every practice.
