Friends of the 46th Ward Schools seeks to enhance quality public education opportunities for students in the 46th Ward by facilitating community participation in public education, improving communication between schools, parents, and community members, and by seeking resources to support the education of our community’s children.
Friends of the 46th Ward Schools was formed in 2011 by a group of parents and community members who are passionate about uniting the 46th Ward community with its schools and working together to boost the resources available to the schools. The group is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and plans to raise and distribute funds for the schools in the 46th Ward.
