Dear Prescott Community,


As we approach the holiday celebrating the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it seems like a perfect moment to share an update about OUR special upcoming celebration of culture and diversity!

Whilst originally scheduled for this Friday, we learned at a later time that our event clashed with the Art Ball, hence the date change far in advance to hopefully include as many Prescott families as possible.


If you are reading about our family-led event for the first time, we are delighted to extend a warm welcome to you and your children for our second annual FREE “Taste of Prescott” which will now take place on Friday February 24th from 6-9pm.


This fun-filled and unique Prescott community celebration will be held in a beautiful donated art gallery location, courtesy of the Chicago Art Department at 1932 South Halsted, Suite 100 in Pilsen. This exciting event gives us an opportunity as Prescott families, teachers, faculty and staff to get connected and enjoy some diverse food samples, international sounds and multi-cultural children’s art projects, tattoos, face-painting and more! 


Our culture specific food tables last year were BEYOND IMPRESSIVE! It was a true culinary showcase of incredible Prescott talent. We will gladly welcome any and all food items from empanadas to matzo balls! 

We will also host a small bar with beverages for all. Volunteer/ food sign-up /RSVP slips will follow soon.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to get involved in the planning, set-up or assist during our unique event. Much of the preparation and organization will be done via e-mail/ text to minimize the time intrusion factor. We will host a brief information meeting with translators available. Please feel free to stop by, even if it just for a few minutes if you wish to share an idea or offer a little help.


Friday 27th January, 8:50-9:45am -Information / Planning Meeting at Prescott in MPR /Cafeteria area.


Please also kindly remember that in addition to our FREE Taste of Prescott gathering, we also have our crucially important Prescott Fundraiser that sincerely needs ALL of our support. 


Even if you cannot attend the event at WhirlyBall on Saturday March 11th, 2017 from 7pm-11pm, you can still donate or pledge assistance in many different ways. 

Our highly dedicated Fundraiser Pack Leaders will be glad to hear from you! Please click on the link for more details about the event and learn ways to show your love for Prescott.




We look forward to seeing you all at the Taste of Prescott!
