Chute Middle School welcomed award winning author G. Neri to our school on October 21st for a day of presentations to our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Mr. Neri had lunch with a few lucky students and signed books throughout his day with us. Chute would like to say thank you to Foundation 65, the Chute PTA, and the Evanston Public Library LOFT for their very generous support of our author visit.

In 2011, award winning author, Nikki Grimes visited Chute and feeder school Dawes, Oakton, and Walker. Parents and students gathered at the Community Open House to view writings, art and performances inspired by Ms. Grimes' work. A segment of Advanced Drama presentation "Masquerade" inspired by Bronx Masquerade by Ms. Grimes was performed at the Open House. Ms. Grimes visits were sponsored by Foundation 65 and school PTAs.
