Kegs 4 Kids is a Succe$$ - Beertasting & A Science Lab too!

After many months of parental and business community effort - Friends of Peirce produced a successful 2nd annual Kegs for Kids Fall Fundraiser raising over $40,000!

Saturday October 8th was a night to celebrate as parents, neighbors, community members, elected representative & local businesses came out in support of Peirce School.

As part of a wonderful evening filled with beer tastings, silent auctions & never-ending food, we were all treated to a wonderful education-focused, student supportive announcement by Senator Heather Steans (IL St. Sen.), Rep. Kelly Cassidy (IL St. Rep.) & Ald. Harry Osterman. They announced that Peirce is to be the recipient of a Capital Grant to build out Peirce's science lab.

Expecting to cost around $75,000, our new Science Lab will be located in the new wing on the 3rd floor. As part of the original building plans, this room was intended to become a fully appointed science lab but was never completed. Ms. Mendez, since becoming principal, has made this "wishlist" item come true. Congratulations Peirce & Ms. Mendez! Look for future updates on our new Science Lab.
