UIC College Prep celebrated the first week of school with a block party. Students, families and staff gathered to enjoy fun games, music, and of course food!
“It was as if we weren’t remote for over a year.”
– Carlos Rivas, Alumni & External Affairs Manager, UIC College Prep
The school community was so excited to celebrate their return to in-person learning.
“It was great to see our students interact on our first day. After 18 months out of the building, I was excited to see our students develop strong relationships and have fun!” Carlos Rivas, the Alumni & External Affairs Manager at UIC College Prep, said, “It was as if we weren’t remote for over a year.”
The best part of the event, students said, was the DJ. Students learned some tricks from the DJ and requested their favorite songs. And then — when the long-time classic line dance, Cupid Shuffle, came on — students were ready to shuffle. And so were the staff!
