Last week our 4th through 6th graders went on a field trip to the Chicago Urban Art Retreat Center in North Lawndale. This center was organized to provide an opportunity for community service to individuals in Lawndale as well as a safe space to bring people together from different backgrounds. Here, Pitch In students learned about how each sculpture in the garden was created in addition to the symbolism of each one. Student also helped sand benches, pull weeds, and peel off old paint in order to maintain this local garden area. We are looking forward to our next trip!
