ABOUT SHERMAN ELEMENTARY
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the spring of 2007.
- Located in the New City neighborhood in Chicago and has 301 students.
- 93% of the school population is African American. 97% come from low-income households.
- The numbers game is a HUGE hit with Sherman. They want to play that game every single day.
- Sherman is very dedicated to the program! We had a lot of confusion last year with the program starting and stopping on more than 2 occasions, but that didn't stop the kids from coming out every day.
