Support Teachers At Senn High With Raffle

Funds raised from this raffle will support the Senn International Festival and Local School Council grants to teachers.

We are using the funds raised to provide grants to teachers for activities that benefit the students directly. Teachers are donating their time to provide "extra" programming to kids who could not otherwise afford these activities. The kinds of extra projects that the LSC funds are:

* Sending a music class to see an opera at the Civic Opera.
* Sending a French class to a hands-on cooking lesson at the Alliance Francaise.
* Providing an English class with "their own" fiction books and a special reading group, to turn students on to reading

The price of the tickets is $10 for four chances. Please post the attached flyer and this email. To purchase tickets, community members can contact me at or (773) 293-7515. I can either bring the tickets directly or mail them out. The drawing is on December 13th. More information on Senn High School is located at
