Parents Night Out 2017 was a HUGE success! Thanks to you, we were able to raise enough money to fully fund our 2nd & 5th grade arts residencies this Spring!!!

We couldn’t have done it without the help from our local & school community- We are so grateful for your continued support, and the hard work of all our volunteers that made this event such a fabulous one.


Parents Night Out (PNO!)

Our annual silent auction, one of our two big fundraisers, gives parents a chance to get out for a night and enjoy the company of other parents in the Walker community. Come grab some food, drink, and bet on wonderful auction items – it’s a win, win! The money raised from this goes to support the program residencies provided to all Walker students in grades 2 and 5. In the past, these have been music programs provided by the Music Institute of Chicago, and exploration activities having students build their concept development in biographing and future city planning – thinking outside the box with experiences that would not be available elsewhere.

This year, Parents Night Out will be held on Saturday February 11th, 7:00pm at Cupitol 812 Grove Street Evanston. Pre-purchase your tickets here
