Upcoming School Fairs

I should have posted this information sooner, but I’ve been pestered by what feels like the 10 Plagues of the Modern Age: Computer virus, broken Blackberry, broken toilet, non-working heater, non-spinning washer, and taxes due.  I don’t know what to conquer first.  I’d rather have locusts or cattle plague at this point.

Options for Knowledge Elementary School Fair

Time: 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Place: Malcolm X College, 1900 W. Van Buren
Parents can obtain information about a variety of elementary magnet and gifted options, meet school and program administrators, and prepare for the 2010-2011 school year.


NPN Preschool and Elementary School Fair

Saturday, October 10, 2009
Horner Park Fieldhouse
2741 W. Montrose Ave. Chicago (at the corner of California and Montrose)
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

You can register online at: npnparents.org

You don’t need to be a member to attend but it looks like you DO need to register in advance.  I believe it’s free.

I love that The Latin School and Near North Montessori will be one of the schools participating….as if they need to drum up business.  Strangely, Dairy Queen will also have a table there.  This fair has traditionally be pretty mobbed, but is a great place to gather information on a lot of schools at once.  A large number of Catholic schools exhibit.  It’s good for pre-school information too.

  • 1. homework  |  October 3, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    Can you spend a minute to talk about parental ‘help’ with homework? I was somewhat irked when observing the projects my son’s gifted kindergarten had. 75% appeared primarily mom-made. Personally, I wonder what is really being taught by doing the job or most of the job for our children? How to get out of homework? That they are incapable of doing it themselves? ? ?
    This is a nice link I wish more parents would consider…
