  1. Can our kids continue to get support throughout the year from the supportive politicians an school board members, instead of one day. I hope so, because those kids are our future. Parents lets stand for supportive education for our future leaders. Lets make sure our kids are not used for self motives for others. Lets hold our board members to they electoral promises concerning our kids. Up with education an down with self service motives. Love our future.

  2. Good Morning

I am contacting you on behalf of Shavonna Cross, Career, and Case Manager Coordinator. Opportunity Works is a program that provides paid internships for young adults, ages 16-24, that are out of school and out of work in suburban Cook County.
