Another holiday is upon us!



While all CPS students are currently on spring break we run right into a holiday weekend Easter Weekend! If spring break hadn't coincided with this more or less religious holiday then CPS students would likely be off today.

When I first starting going to high school (GO FALCONS!) CPS attempted to eliminate Good Friday as an off day but went back to business as usual the next year. The teachers weren't playing that! In fact my World Geography teacher already said he's taking that day off!

All the same, I hope everyone who reads this blog is having a happy and safe Good Friday and Easter. Hopefully you're taking this time to eat some tradition Easter treats in addition to any other activities you may enjoy!

Come see "The Curators of Dixon School"

It will be shown on the west side at ICE Theater's Lawndale 10 cinemas on Wednesday far from both Bennett/Shedd and Dixon School on the south side. The Lawndale cinemas are located at 3330 W. Roosevelt Rd. I also posted about this documentary last year as it was part of an independent film fest held at the Art Institute of Chicago. Refer to the flyer below for more details.

Also check out the doc's official website @ http://curatorsofdixonschool.com

Remember last year when I posted about a summer movie promotion for kids at ICE Theaters alas since October they no longer operate and since December no longer own their former Chatham 14 location near 87th & Dan Ryan.
