What is Saturday Place?
Saturday Place is an enrichment program for 3rd and 4th grade Chicago Public School students who are performing at least one year below grade level. It's a once-a-week program comprised of activities quite different from the typical classroom. The program provides support in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science—and has been proven to help students gain confidence and raise their grades in their regular classrooms.
This event was located at Rockit Bar & Grill.
The Patten House Project is a fundraising campaign, spearheaded by the Palatine-Inverness Arts Council. The Arts Council's focus is on fostering cultural, educational and economic growth in the Palatine - Inverness, Illinois area as it relates to the arts.
