This year CPS schools lost funding for all sports in elementary schools. This was a devastation to schools because sports teach our children to handle adversity, time management, team work and socialization. In addition to the loss of athletic funding, Bell was not awarded the After School All-Stars Grant, which last year funded a number of after school clubs. This grant is applied for each year; however this year, schools who have not received it previously were chosen over schools who had received it in previous years. Donations to Health and Wellness will help us continue our outstanding athletic program and make possible some of the clubs/activities that have been lost due to lack of funding. Your donation will also highlight the importance of these programs to our school community.
