Our School’s Namesake

We are so proud our school is named after Beulah Ralph! She worked in CPS for 58 years. Mrs. Ralph was an important part of desegregation in CPS in the 60’s and started the Home School Communicator program. Mrs. Ralph was devoted to the idea that all students should be give an equal opportunity to learn!

Mrs. Naylor, Mrs. Ralph’s daughter, graciously visits all the kindergarten classes each year. She shares a story about her mom as a little girl and helps kindergarten get to know Beulah Ralph better. After her visit, each child gets a copy of the story Mrs. Naylor shared. We enjoyed coloring our books and will keep them in our book boxes to read. Eventually the kids will bring the books home to share with you.
