About Ward Elementary

  • Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2013. 
  • Located in the Armour Square neighborhood in Chicago and has 529 students.
  • 62% of the school population is Asian, 20% is African American, and 11% is hispanic. 88% come from low-income households. 
  • Coach Torres leads the team in stretching at the start of every practice. The players often compete to see who can get the closest to doing a split.
  • Every Urban Initiatives team has its favorite game to play at practice, but Ward’s is one of the most unique. Most of their practices end with "Human Foosball", a game which they created. It’s just like real foosball, but with excited kids for players instead of wooden blocks. We think Ward’s version is more fun.
