We are so grateful to F3 Group (Faith, Fitness, Fellowship) for putting on an amazing and FUN field day for the kids at Summer Studies.

We had a blast!

The FamilyPlex is buzzing again with the excitement of a new school year, but things are looking a little different.

We are supporting students in the East Garfield Park Neighborhood by providing a learning hub for parents to send their children each day. Students engage with their teachers and peers from school, online while their schools are remote learning. Our staff supports our students in their academics, social/emotional support, and even act as tech support!

We love having kids in the building, and getting to help our community by having a safe space for students to engage in their work and keeping parents stress-free has been a blessing to us.
