Thank you for helping Cicero Prep PSO. We appreciate your support.

It has been a long-standing Great Hearts' tradition to give a collective thank you gift to our teachers around the holiday season. In previous years, this campaign was called Snow Storm and ran November through December. We have chosen to improve upon our endeavors to give generously to our teachers and to pair it with the fall season. Fall is already a season rich in the tradition of giving thanks and expressing gratitude.

The Season of Gratitude campaign will run from October 22nd through November 16th. We will present the faculty with their thoughtfully packaged monetary gift from the Cicero Prep parent community at the Cicero Prep Faculty Bowling Night complete with dinner, drinks, and dessert for them and their families. Donations may be made anytime between now and November 16th with the following link: READ MORE
Let the season of giving begin!
