Lots of cops on Granville? Hri

Walked through Granville just now and there were many cops standing around that convenient store next to Dak. Not letting anyone in right now. Anyone know what happened?

  • Armed robbery this morning in the corner at granville n winthrop. Two offenders.
    The store across the street on the north side of granville was closed on monday for two gambling machines - but was related to the Argyle St. raids.

  • Thanks for correcting my post. For sure I thought it was only the gambling. machine. Didn't know about the Armed Robbery. I stand corrected. Thank you Lakeview Bob.

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.

School, day care and ballet for a 3 years

Hi all,

Does anyone have any recommendations?

  • robin in WRP Raising a 3rd generation WRPer

    Here is a link to last year's CPS Guide: http://www.cpsoae.org/2015-2016%20Options%20for%20Knowledge%20Guide.pdf

    CPS Obsessed block has great information (though you may have to dig through bunch of BS) on every public school, and the application process: https://cpsobsessed.com/

    As you consider schools, I strongly urge you to attend LSC (local school council) meetings; the parent community is a better window into a school than test scores.

  • JMG

    Do check out Swift! - I think you might be pleasantly surprised by the facilities and other resources available there. (including a swimming pool and auditorium).
    We are lucky in Edgewater that the alderman and his staff are working hard to help all our schools and to make sure are public schools have the resources they need.
    I agree with Robin about getting to know the parent community too.
    There's a friends of swift group on fb: https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSwift/?fref=ts
