Friends of McPherson School gets the word out!

McPherson Elementary School, with Friends of McPherson, recently sent out door hangers to the neighborhood highlighting a Top 10 list "What's Great about McPherson?"  Contact FOM and check out other great efforts at their web site:



We congratulate Friends of McPherson and the Lincoln Square community for their efforts and support on behalf of our very important neighborhood school! Lincoln Square is well know as a terrific place to raise a family. We need strong community support of our local public schools to maintain growth, opportunity, quality of life and to keep our families on our blocks.

Reminder! DonorsChoose.org an easy way to help Chappell School

Donorschoose.org remains a great way to help Chappell Elementary.   This fundraising sometimes goes under the radar but it is fun, easy and effective way to help Chappell teachers and students.




Right now there are only two Chappell projects up.  We will be adding a project Monday for the Kindergarten classes and we will receive a "match grant" for next week only, so CHECK BACK IN! Parents, neighbors and teachers got together to fund a record number of Chappell DonorsChoose projects last year!

Check this Monday for the Chappell Kindergarten Project 
and get a match grant!







Chappell is ranked a Level 1 school in Chicago 
and is a high performer in the Ravenswood-Ridge Network of CPS.

EveryBlock is dead, long live every block!

After the demise of EveryBlock, neighbor Grace Van Moer sent us these photos of the current state of the Mariano's construction to share with the community. She has been taking such photos about weekly, and invites neighbors to view them on Twitter and Instagram by searching #marianosravenswood.




If you have neighborhood news, photos, or stories that you would have shared before on EveryBlock, feel free to send it along to us instead. And if you'd like to post regularly on our blog, let us know and we can make you a contributor, so you can do it directly yourself.
