Greetings Prescott Parent,

Welcome to the Prescott School Community—home of the Prescott Wolves!   Prescott is a magnet cluster school (preschool-8th grade) focused on literature and writing. Currently considered a "neighborhood school", Prescott is located on the corner of Wrightwood and Ashland just kitty corner from Wrightwood Park.

We at Prescott Parents would like to be among the first to welcome you to Prescott Magnet Cluster School!

Prescott Parents is an active community of parents, family members and friends of Prescott students.  We work with Principal Erin Roche, Assistant Principal Amanda Malsch, faculty members, Alderman Waguespack, local universities and other community members to direct and support a variety of programs that enrich our students’ experience at Prescott School. 

Prescott Parents was established about eight years ago as an external marketing and fundraising resource for Prescott School.  Having helped Prescott grow and thrive, it now serves as an external and internal resource for the school.

Prescott Parents, through its team of committed volunteers, works to enhance the school facilities, underwrite academic and extracurricular programs, assist teachers in their classrooms, host the annual Prescott fundraiser, build the Prescott community, and coordinate communications to keep the greater Prescott community connected.

From time to time you’ll hear us call ourselves the Wolfpack, to pay homage to the new school mascot the Prescott Wolves and to represent our loyalty to one another and the school. 

In the 2015-16 school year, Prescott Parents will introduce two new events – the Taste of Prescott, a celebration of our rich and diverse community through food and music, and the Spartan Wolfpack Adventure Race, an obstacle race that we’ll conquer as a powerful parent network – and will continue to bring many other activities to the Prescott Community, like:

  • Walkathon
  • Field Day
  • End-of-School-Year Picnic
  • Ice Cream Social
  • Book Fairs
  • Pop Up Fundraising Events
  • School Dances
  • Teacher Appreciation
  • Holiday Pledge Drive

We have over 25 Pack Leaders planning for the 2015-16 school year and we invite you to get involved.  With more activities than ever on the horizon, we are counting on your support to strengthen our Prescott community.  We ask that each family commit three hours a year (or more!) to support Prescott.

We keep our community informed by contributing to the Prescott School Newsletter, reaching out through an email distribution list (PrescottSchoolChicago@gmail.com), and posting on our Facebook Page (Prescott Parents).  Connect with us! 

Welcome to Prescott School.  We are so happy you’ve joined our community!

Sincerely,

The Prescott Parents Board - Lizzie Gussis, Jennifer Lister and Meaghan Schneider
