On Wednesday, August 14th, Noble Network of Charter Schools held our Annual Kick-Off for our 1,300 staff members as a way to celebrate the upcoming school year.
This year the program was hosted by CEO Constance Jones and kicked off with an amazing performance from the UIC College Prep’s very own Mariachi Juvenil. There were several speakers throughout the event including Josh Velazquez, a Mansueto High School senior, Ellen Metz, head of schools for Noble, Delaina Martin, a Noble Distinguished Teacher and 10th grade math teacher at Chicago Bulls College Prep, YessicaOrduño-Marín, a Pritkzer College Prep alumna, Thaddeus Jones, a senior at Gary Comer College Prep, and Jahmal Cole, founder and CEO of My Block, My Hood, My City.
Noble also premiered two videos during Kick-Off including a video that featured four Noble moms and the Noble Distinguished Teacher video in addition to bringing the 20 Distingiushed Teacher’s on stage.
The event ended with a dance performance of the Cupid Shuffle with CEO Constance Jones and Muchin College Prep’s cheer team.
