  • The Sound of Math

    Ms. Eisner is asking for $160.68:
    My students need headphones for the online math games and exercises. There are important resources that require sound, and it is distracting to the other students if a student does not have headphones.

CTA reveals route, four new stations for Far South Side Red Line extension

In addition to 5.3 miles of new track, the extension calls for the creation of four new stations at 103rd Street, 111th Street, Michigan Avenue near 115th Street, and—of course—a 130th Street terminal in the Far South Side community of Riverdale.

An open house to present details of the alignment plan to local residents has been set for Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. at the Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy gymnasium at 250 E. 111th Street.

    CTA reveals route, new stations for South Side Red Line extension
    The planned extension of the Chicago Transit Authority's Red Line from 95th Street south to 130th Street took a big step forward Friday as officials announced the proposed path for the long-overdue transit improvement project. Departing from the soon-to-be-revamped 95th Street terminal, the "preferred alignment"-or route-would run along the west side of the Union Pacific Railroad line to about 109th Street.
