Catalyst-Maria Parents Represent Charter Schools in Springfield!

Last week, several Catalyst Maria parents met with state legislators to communicate the impact that the Catalyst Maria community is having on their scholars and families! This visit consisted of several meetings with State Senators and Representatives, and was coordinated with Catalyst partner organization INCS (Illinois Network of Charter Schools). Check out a picture of parents visiting with Representative Dan Burke below, which links to the INCS website!  Additionally, INCS Lobby Day is right around the corner, with thousands of charter school scholars, parents, staff, and supporters visiting the Capitol on May 21, 2015!

Catalyst Maria One Goal Parent Night

On April 21st  the families of the 24 One Goal scholars met with Ms. Fawaz for the first parent night.  At this meeting they celebrated their acceptance into One Goal, learned about the goals of the three year program, and filled out the necessary paperwork for enrollment – the final step is solidifying Catalyst Maria’s first One Goal cohort.  These scholars made their commitments to 100% graduation from college with 100% full-tuition scholarships, with the help of the One Goal program- congratulations to the scholars and the CM community!
