  • My fleXible FIRSTies

    Mrs. S. is asking for $2179.76:
    My students need Storage, Student Lap Desk, Wobble Chairs and Floor Seats, Balance Ball Chairs and Comfy Pillows to help create a comfortable and engaging classroom.
    Onahan Elementary School
  • I am guilty of not fully reading the project description. I would never intentionally begrudge special needs kids of their special needs.

    My point however, remains intact. The CPS and CTU is broken. The wasteful spending and unsustainable city pensions cause the need to create a project that should be provided by the city. We, in Illinois, Cook County and Chicago are taxed like nobody elsewhere. When will the bleeding stop? We are getting less services and pay more in taxes.

    RIDICULOUS!!!

  • I would like to thank the amazing Onahan Community and Google.com for helping me get my grant fully funded in less than a week! I greatly appreciate it!! Our Onahan families and staff are so very supportive of their teachers and students! They understand the importance of this project and how it will have a positive impact on my students. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! #Onahanpride
