CICS Irving Park Welcomes Carpenter and TV Personality Ty Pennington

"Changing lives, changing students, it's changing families..."

Ty Pennington of Extreme Home Makeover visited CICS Irving Park earlier this month as part of a CPS program supported by Guaranteed Rate. As part of the "Classroom Makeover Challenge" Ty excitedly spoke with parents, students, and teachers about how space, environment, technology, and even furniture can impact a student's learning and growth. After his visit, Ty commented, "...Hats off to everyone in the Irving Park community, you are changing lives every day!"
