    Dog owners,never leave your dogs in a unlocked yard by themselves.Evil people do steal them right out your yards for resale or other very bad things.
    I hope you find your dog. Keep us up dated please.

Disappointed in Charities

Want to donate a 3 drawer blonde solid wood dresser with matching mirror. Salvation Army cane out and refused it because of a scratch; not immediately resaleable. Turned down by 4 other "charitable" organizations. Too bad as some family would have benefited. Are all charities about making money? What happened to caring about our fellow man?

  • Barbara Foy Neighbor and Realtor for 30 years in Portage Park.

    I have put tons of stuff in the alley right before garbage pick up. It is a shame that charities dont want to recycle. So many people could benefit. I tried doing the thing of leaving in alley, I had some furniture. No one took it and it was a good table.

    i'll second Freecycle. I've used it to both get rid of items and receive items with only positive experiences to report. It's a wonderful option to have and much better than a landfill!

The What, Why, and How of the High School Admissions Process in Chicago @ Mathnasium - West DePaul · Mar 8, 2017

So you've figured out elementary school (phew!), but now are starting to think about high school in the city and need some guidance? JOIN NPN and our partners to get your questions answered here!

We've assembled a panel of local experts who can advise parents on the process of high school and academic center (7th and 8th grades) admission. Our panelists are on a mission to educate parents who are getting ready to embark on the admissions process, and to share information about the services they provide to support families through their journey to high school.
 
Our panelists include: 
Chicago School GPS - Get information about the types of schools available and an overview on the admissions process to each school. From pre-school through high school, school choices in Chicago are an ever-changing landscape and Chicago School GPS continually explores all options to guide you to your school destination. 

Test Prep Chicago - Become familiar with the timeline for the high school admission process and what you need to know about test prep for the various admissions tests required for some schools. Test Prep Chicago specializes in preparing 7th and 8th grade students for the entrance exams for Chicago's Selective Enrollment, Independent, and Parochial High Schools. Their test prep options include both group courses as well as in-home individual tutoring. Group courses at elementary schools and community centers are offered throughout the city.

Mathnasium - Learn about what you can do NOW to help your child prepare for the admission and test prep process, strategies to ensure that your kids come to the tests prepared, and advice on how to manage the stress that can arise during the process! Mathnasium, the nation’s leading math-only learning center franchise, specializes in teaching kids math in a way that makes sense to them. When math makes sense, kids excel—whether they’re far behind or eager to get ahead. The proprietary Mathnasium Method™ is the result of 40+ years of hands-on instruction and research.
