Bateman has been recognized as a exemplary CPS healthy school by the Office of Student Health and Wellness. This reception is to honor school administrators, health and wellness champions, and wellness teams; who have achieved Healthy CPS exemplary status in aligning to the health and wellness policies of the district. We will continue striving to make sure that our students receive everything they need to be healthy!
CPS has recognized Bateman as a category 1 fine arts school which means we are a school that excels in regards to fine arts, because of this we were able to receive a $1,000 grant from Ingenuity!
Each year, grant levels are determined based on a number of factors:
As a non-profit, not a foundation, Ingenuity raises money each year for granting directly to Chicago Public Schools. We are thankful to have received a grant from them!

Mission Propelle empowers girls in elementary school to discover who they are, what they believe, and how to advocate for themselves. We accomplish this through an after-school program that combines yoga, reading, and mentoring. In each one-hour class, girls develop mindfulness, deep breathing techniques, and self-confidence as they practice yoga. They learn how to solve problems by reading original storybooks starring Dottie Tov, a relatable and age-aligned female protagonist. The girls discuss the content of the book and how it relates to their own life. Throughout class, girls learn to apply leadership skills in their everyday lives as they receive situation-based mentorship from trained instructors. All girls receive digital downloads of the original storybooks each week!
Class runs every Thursday from 3:45-4:45 starting 9/28 and ending 12/7. No class on 11/23.
ALL STUDENTS RECEIVE A T-SHIRT! *Collect a new shirt each term.
New students receive their very own yoga mat!
