Sign-ups for Fall Sports (grades 5-8) opened up this past week, with the first week of competition scheduled for September 17. Students can sign up for Boys and Girls Cross Country, Boys and Girls Volleyball, and Boys Soccer. If your child brings an application home, please fill that out and have your child return it to our Athletic Director, Mr. Martin, as soon as possible. We are a small school and won't have enough students to support all of those, but we will try! Once we have our rosters set, our coaches will communicate with families about practice and game schedules.
All sports schedules for grades 5-12 in Chicago Public Schools, including Solomon, can be found at cpsathletics.com. For more information about the website and what you can find on there, please click here.
If you have an 8th grader and will be applying for a CPS high school or you are a Pre-K family living outside Solomon's attendance boundary and will be applying for Solomon's Kindergarten program, GoCPS is your one-stop-shop for learning about your options and applying to schools. The 2023-2024 application cycle opens up on September 14, and information about parent trainings will be posted on the website in September. Solomon's counselor, Mrs. Mulholland, will host parent and 8th grade student sessions this fall so that we can help our families with the high school application process, and we will share those dates soon.
In partnership with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), CPS will offer on-site, preventative dental services at no cost to ALL Pre-K-12th grade students. Solomon will host these dental services for students on October 17-20 and October 24. For your child to participate, consent forms (English / Spanish) must be returned to the main office.
