 In The CAPE Blog

West Chicago’s CAPE After School Programs from across District 33 concluded the 2022-23 school year on May 12, 2023 with a district-wide celebration at Leman Middle School. The celebration drew 180 guests who packed into the cafeteria to participate in the art presentations by students, teachers and CAPE artists.

Classes such as Turner partners Amelia Cintula and Yolanda Narváez shared how their CAPE after school 2-3rd grade class focused on sustainability and created an installation pieces from water bottles.
