THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF THE 4th ANNUAL CHICAGO EDUCATION EXPO
West Loop Families held its 4th annual Chicago Education Expo at the Hampton Inn West Loop on February 25, 2017. Educators and administrators from Chicago private and public schools, enrichment centers and other family resources were on hand to share information and answer questions from parents and caregivers seeking to learn more about the different options available to children.
The Expo included a presentation titled, The Importance of Arts and Foreign Language Programs for Children, presented by guest speakers Lauren Hogan Casser, Associate Dean, Continuing Studies - Youth & Outreach, School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Angel Li, Founder & CEO, Little Linguists Academy;Chris Roebuck, Music Teacher, GEMS World Academy Chicago. Speakers shared information on the ways the different forms of arts and foreign language studies contribute to increased achievement in academic subjects and the overall health and well-being of young children.
West Loop Families is committed to bringing together great Chicago schools, enrichment centers and organizations that offer services relevant to families with children, all under one roof and giving exhibitors the opportunity to showcase their programs to Chicago families. This event is made possible with the help of many organizations and individuals. We are grateful to our volunteers from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School for making sure things ran smoothly at the Expo. We appreciate the involvement of so many great schools and organizations that exhibit at the event. Thank you to GEMS World Academy Chicago, Gourmet Gorilla Foods, Neighbors of West Loop and Physicians Immediate Care for your financial contributions and overall support to make this event possible.
