  • C'mon, you mean with this huge budget for education, they don't have janitors, (oh, pardon- Sanitary Engineers, or Bldg Maintenance) that should be doing their jobs with supplies purchased by CPS procurement? And, $300 to clean a room; gimme a break. A couple of buckets,, Mops, sponges and a bottle of Mr. Clean does not cost $337, unless, of course, you go through the city's procurement.

  • Sandy in Gage Park 60 year resident

    I agree with Jake. CPS schools have cleaning staff and supplies. If this isn't so, ten to fifteen dollars at Dollar Tree is plenty to get those things.

  • Diverse Learners Need Access to Clean Water

    Ms. Dobert is asking for $625.71:
    My students need reusable water bottles to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to help the environment.

  • BlightedPk Improving Brighton Park

    Curie has water fountains, please use them.

  • BlightedPk Improving Brighton Park

    Heck, if you all want new water bottles,... then everyone and/or anyone can sign-up for any major organization events (like Heart, Cancer, ALZ, MS, etc.) and participate in a walk/run or simply help in registration onsite or in the office....and I can almost guarantee that all will get a free water bottle or t-shirt or some bag of goodies/snacks. Do something good and get something in return.

    That's a win-win situation for all by supporting a cause you believe in.

  • Bruce Brighton Park

    Are you kidding. Most of these items are supposed to be supplied by the parents not a classroom fund raising effort. Let's teach the kids that if you need money just ask for it. Go to Goodwill for water bottles they have tons of them cheap. The same goes for coats Goodwill has them also. Geeez

  • BlightedPk Improving Brighton Park

    Needy or just plain greedy? TOO MANY REQUESTS!

    - Water bottles: buy one and simply refill it. Then rinse and repeat.
    - Coats: try hand-me-downs or thrift stores (fashionably called vintage).
    - Food: parents provide food (or food stamps for dependents).
    - Buy shampoo/razors/hygiene products at the Dollar Store.
    -...

    Please note that I'm a graduate of Curie and, yes, I've worked in non-profit so spare me the sob stories. This is nonsense. Go organize a legitimate effort where young adults will learn something about becoming productive members of society and give something back to the community too.

  • BlightedPk Improving Brighton Park

    It's remarkable that kids all over the city and in the suburbs, also, walk or take public transportation to school. I took public transportation to Curie when I was a student there and worked a part-time job. You can do the same, so try it!
