Chicago’s The Greek Star, the oldest continuously published Greek newspaper in the United States, is currently featuring a special Back to School Series, profiling each of the area’s Greek-American Day Schools. Each week they are spotlighting a different school, discussing the school’s history, curriculum and providing information for parents of school-aged children.
The paper’s staff indicated that they thought it was ”time to (once again) extol the virtues of the area Greek-American Day Schools.” They cited increasing classes sizes and multiple program cutbacks as reasons for parents to take another look at Greek-American Day Schools as an education option for their children.
The Greek Star remains steadfast in their commitment to support the Greek-American Day Schools. They highlight the academic, social and cultural benefits, including the opportunity to learn and celebrate the Greek language, culture and traditions, as well as the Greek Orthodox heritage. “An education in our Greek-American Day Schools is an investment in your children and their future, in so many ways.”
The Greek Star is available by subscription only.
