The ABC’s of CPS Bootcamp Time!
Do you have a neighbor who is clueless about our beloved school system but you don’t feel like taking the time to explain the whole process?
Are YOU getting ready to enter the quagmire of the application process?
Don’t worry, don’t fret — there is finally an easy way to get the ball rolling, with Christine’s boot camp. For a mere $30 you get 2 hours worth of introduction to the application process as well as amazingly well organized materials to help it all seem clear (or as clear as it’s ever gonna get.) I attended a session last year and I guarantee it is well worth the money for CPS newbies.
Christine has a child in a Classical school, FYI.
Some of us have a best friend to walk us through the application process for Chicago Public Schools. For the rest of you, there’s me!
No need to be intimidated, overwhelmed or frustrated by the process. I will give you the essential information you need to choose your schools and complete your Kindergarten applications on time. I have saved you months of research time by compressing what you need to know in short, concise, accurate workshops.
I have several sessions coming up in a few different formats, so you should easily find one (or two) that fits your needs and schedule.
ABCs of CPS BOOTCAMP
These sessions are for parents whose children are entering kindergarten who want the essential details of the application process for Chicago Public Schools including magnet, magnet cluster, neighborhood, and Regional Gifted/Classical schools.
Each of these sessions are identical, so choose one that fits your schedule and call or email to RSVP.
Location: Margate Park Field House, 4921 N. Marine Drive (pay & display parking available). Call or email to RSVP. Cost $30 per family, cash or check at the door and includes the 2-hour session plus a cache of take-home material.
Thurs, August 25th ——> 6pm – 8pm
Sat, August 27th ——-> 10:00am – 12:00pm
Sat, September 10th ——> 10:00am – 12:00pm
Tues, September 13th ——-> 10:00am – 12:00noon
Christine is also available for private consultations.
Additional sessions will be held at Fantasy Kingdom (perhaps a better choice if bringing the kiddies along.) See her link for more information. If you do bring kids to a session, be sure to have a bag of entertainment for them. I saw some kids going stir crazy in a session last year. Think of it as a 2 hour plane ride where you’ll actually be wanting to pay attention to everything the flight attendant tells you…..
