Bullying Presentation for Parents
Thursday January 19, 2023
This session was on the topic of bullying: what it is and how it is handled by Orozco. Ms. Sovell and Social Worker Prendiville presented and answered questions.
We are excited to share a powerful new educational program!
In partnership with Chicago Public Library (CPL), CPS is launching "The 81 Club", a program that gives all CPS students and teachers access to the resources and tools of all 81 CPL branches.
The 81 Club allows students and teachers easier access to digital resources. For the first time, CPS students have direct and instant access to the resources of the Chicago Public Library.
All CPS students are automatically enrolled and can gain full access to the program by picking up their 81 Club card at their local library. (Find your closest CPL location at chipublib.org/locations.) Students can also access online resources through the Sora application, which they use as part of their school day.
For more information on The 81 Club, visit www.chipublib.org/81club.

Information about the program:
PorchLight Theater's Sing Out! is a literacy and theatre residency that starts with a book, historical era, or theme and works on the classroom, small group and individual level to adapt that material into a musical. Students are exposed not only to theatre basics and the wealth of careers in the arts, but the tools adapters use, the structure of a musical, and dive deep into particular characters and themes. Through the lens of music theatre we can bring an additional arts discipline to our school and deepen the arts and literacy program our students already receive. Through examining each students’ lived experience as it relates to the topic/book, we aim to connect and celebrate our unique school community and by adapting these experiences through music theatre we plan to deepen school arts quality.
In addition to funding the residency program, Orozco was also awarded funds that will be used to update our stage technology so students themselves will run every aspect of their stage productions, opening up opportunities to explore a greater wealth of career paths in creative arts.
Thank you to Mr. Koltak for applying and winning the Creative Schools Fund grant for almost $10,000!
