Let’s build a strong neighborhood K-8 for our kids!

Dear New Field and Eugene Field Families and Supporters,

Our nation may be divided but parents and educators are united and determined. As you know, Alderman Joe Moore has put a temporary hold on his proposal to close Eugene Field Elementary School. A group of parents from New Field and Eugene Field, known as Reunite the Fields, has proposed a better model: We want to merge New Field Primary School together with Eugene Field Elementary School, under one administration, occupying both of our current buildings. We have formally submitted a request to CPS Leadership, which they are considering during the month of November. 

You can help build a better K-8 school for our kids! Call and email these leaders today:

Forrest Claypool, CPS Chief Executive Officer: feclaypool@cps.edu (773) 553-1500

IL State Representative Kelly Cassidy: repcassidy@gmail.com (773) 784-2002

IL State Senator Heather Steans: cathy@heathersteans.com (773)769-1717

When you call/email, say:

“Hello, may I speak to (name of leader, above), or can I leave him/her a message? I am a parent from New Field School (or Eugene Field School, or both). I support the proposed administrative merger of New Field and Eugene Field Schools. We believe we can build up enrollment and improve both schools by merging them into one school, under one administration, occupying both of our current buildings. We can build a Level 1+ K-8 neighborhood school for the children of Rogers Park. Thank you.”

Querido Familias y Apoyadores del New Field y Eugene Field,
Nuestra nación puede estar dividida, pero padres y educadores están unidos y decididos. Como saben, el Concejal Joe Moore ha suspendido temporalmente su propuesta para cerrar la Escuela Eugene Field. Un grupo de padres de New Field y Eugene Field, conocidos como Reunite the Fields, han propuesto un modelo mejor: Queremos fusionar la Escuela New Field con la Escuela Eugene Field, bajo una administración, ocupando ambos edificios actuales. Hemos presentado formalmente una solicitud al liderazgo del CPS, que están considerando durante el mes de noviembre.
¡Usted puede ayudar a construir una escuela K-8 mejor para nuestros niños! Llame y envíe un correo electrónico a estos líderes hoy:

Ogden-Jenner Merger Is Best For Both Schools, New Study Says

A consultant’s report is the latest endorsement of an effort to combine the seemingly disparate schools. “A more broadly racially and socioeconomically diverse student body leads to improved academic achievement as well as cognitive and non-cognitive development for all students,” the report reads. “This type of project could create an important template and positive outcomes for other schools experiencing enrollment challenges in the city of Chicago.”
