What is Starry Night?

Starry Night is an adults-only celebration of our amazing school, including delicious food and drinks, dancing, games, and a live and silent auction!  It is hosted by Friends of Skinner North, and is FoSN’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

FoSN Fundraising


The gap between the Chicago Public Schools budget and the school’s needs grows each year. FoSN helps bridge this gap by purchasing supplies, equipment, software, curriculum, facilities improvements and other items that our students and teachers need every day. Funds raised are used to cover school expenses not covered by the CPS budget. 

Bridge the Gap is an annual drive that allows families to make a tax-deductible donation to FoSN, which enables the administration to plan for the next academic year and meet our school's growing needs. The legacy of parent and community support through FoSN is key to Skinner North's success, providing the funds we need for learning, laughter, and making memories.
