The 7th and 8th grade team hosted our 2nd Annual James Ward Alumni High School Fair on Thursday, November 16th. 31 graduates of James Ward School representing 13 CPS High Schools met with our 7th and 8th grade students to share their experiences and answer questions for our students. As our 8th graders are preparing to apply to high school, this was a wonderful event to bring our former and current students together.
