ABOUT THE PSO
Families Creating a Stronger ChiArts
The Parent Support Organization (PSO) is a community of parents and guardians who work together to support the academic, artistic, social, and financial goals of ChiArts. The PSO seeks to strengthen the school by building ties among ChiArts faculty and staff, families, administration, and students, as well as by establishing a forum for increased communication. ALL parents and guardians of existing ChiArts students are automatic members of the PSO. Though participation is not mandatory, family members are encouraged to be an active part of PSO efforts.
The ChiArts Parent Support Organization (PSO) supports ChiArts by:
1. Hosting and supporting school functions and promotes fellowship among families, students, and teachers.
2. Volunteering for a variety of school activities and performances.
3. Planning and managing the execution of ChiArts merchandise.
4. Serving as advocates for The Chicago High School for the Arts throughout the community.
