With the help of parent and community volunteers, each of our Swift Movie Nights provides a safe, family-friendly environment for the Swift community.  Through donations at the door and selling concessions we are also able to raise money for Swift School. If you’d like to volunteer for one of our upcoming movie nights, please email us.


Are you connected to a local restaurant or business in Edgewater or Rogers Park? If so, then Dining Out for Swift is a great way for you to support our school. Each month, preferably on a Friday night, the Swift community and the business community partner together to support our neighborhood school. At Swift, we often say we are “doing it better together.” The upcoming Dining Out for Swift dates are listed above – with 10% of all sales made on that day at that restaurant going to Swift School. We believe that local businesses keep our neighborhood schools strong, and stronger neighborhood schools produce stronger local businesses!  (More Detail: Dining Out Proposal)
