  • Harte Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Last year was my child's first xperience with CPS. This school came recommeneded by a friend, but I later learned from neighbors that this is not the school to put my daughter in. It's difficult being in an area where you only have a few schools to choose from and those that are worth exploring are selective enrollment, out of the district, or private. So i gave this school a chance and I personally don't feel like the teachers truly care about the students. I don't have a bad child but she struggles in math and I made the school aware of that in the beginning of the school year. Nothing was done to assist in bringing her to speed in math. There were instances where assignements were misplaced, and I was never informed that they were missing. Instead I was told that she is at the age (11) where she needs to help responsible. Are you serious? Held responsible for her own education at age 11, I was at that point done. I then found out at open house 3rd qtr mind you that the school didn't have contact information for me so nearly an entire school year went by before I found out that weekly phone blasts, and e-mails are sent out to the parents. This info was provided at registration!

Better economy = more tax revenue = higher CTA funding

Plus a lot of us are annoyed by the new route with the stop at 53rd & Lake Park. Many runs have no one getting off there & on other runs, just one person gets off there.

Lost Cat

Our cat Roca, a grey neutered male ran out of our house this morning. We just moved to the neighbourhood, and he must be disoriented. Our house is on Harper and 56th Street. He is wearing a stripped collar with a fish shaped buckle. He is very friendly and likes to roll on the floor. If you see him, please e-mail me at holea39@gmail.com
