About Nixon Elementary
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2014.
- Located in the Hermosa neighborhood in Chicago and has 978 students.
- 97% of the school population is hispanic. 98% come from low-income households.
- Nixon is one of Urban Initiatives’ newest Work to Play schools, but that hasn’t stopped the team from developing into a very tightly knit unit. After the 2-month break following the fall season, every one of the team’s players chose to come back for the spring season!
- Nixon’s first road game took them a LONG way from home. The team traveled to Wilmette for the 14th Urban Initiatives X Wilmette Wings Crosstown Classic.
