It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our good friend, Mr. Duke Dellin. Duke was a kind and inspirational person and a generous supporter of the Prague Committee of Sister Cities and other Czech organization, including the Masaryk School.
Our sympathies are with his wife Cate and their children and grandchildren.
To honor Duke's legacy and his unparalleled support of the Czech-American community, his family is asking that contributions be made in his memory to the Masaryk School.
Please donate online at the link below, or by check made out to the Masaryk School (5701 W 22nd Place, Cicero, IL 60804).
On Saturdays we offer six different language classes for both children who are Czech heritage speakers, and for children who want to learn Czech as a foreign language. These classes span ages from 6 to 15 years of age. Throughout the year, we also organize special workshops, projects and movie screenings for our students.
The TGM provides classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students as well as the Jan Neruda Club for seniors. All classes meet once a week and last 90 minutes. Our learning materials are sourced exclusively from the Czech Republic.
The Czech School provides numerous cultural opportunities - film screenings, concerts, workshops and lectures about Czech history, literature, architecture, Czech customs and cuisine. Special opportunities include a summer language school and annual trips to the Czech Republic.
