Google group for parents of babies-preschoolers living in attendance boundary of Portage Park School

I have created a Google group for parents of babies thru preschoolers living in the attendance boundary of Portage Park School (PPS) in Chicago, IL. PPS is a neighborhood school for grades PreK-8. There are also some current parents in the group to answer your questions. The primary purpose of this group is informational and the secondary purpose is to create social connection and build community.

You can find out more about the school here, including the attendance boundary: http://www.cps.edu/Schools/Pages/school.aspx?SchoolId=610135...

Feel free to comment here if you have questions about the group. FYI, I am a current parent and volunteer. I am doing this on my own, with the idea of possibly helping to create a cohort. I felt like some people may be making a school choice without knowing or talking to any current parents. So trying to offer that as a community service of sorts.

Hopefully the link to the group works, if not just search for Portage Park School in Google groups.

Please share this with anyone you think would be interested and lives in the boundary. EB does not make it easy to post in multiple areas so I am just posting it in PP.

  • I think it's a great idea. My sister was in a similar group when The Chicago Academy opened quite a few years ago. She always talked about the importance of being involved with the teachers to keep both parties accountable for the kids education.

Childcare

Where is the best place to send young children to daycare in our area?

  • My son goes to Kids in Harmony as well. We love it there! I would suggest you schedule a tour of some of the daycares in order to decide what would be a good fit.

    We've used Kids in Harmony and Kiddieland ECE. Both are great schools.
