This site contains helpful information for the neighborhood 7/8 program.   You will find a school calendar here as well as postings about information related to standardized testing, class trips and other important announcements. This year, all homework assignments are being generated via Google Classroom in addition to be assigned in class.  You will need your child's username and password to access the classroom as CPS does not allow users from outside CPS to have accounts.  If you have questions about homework, please refer to your child's assignment notebook, the relevant google classroom page or contact the individual instructors. 

Assignments have been distributed to kids. Below are links to the documents so you are aware of the work or in case the paper copy is lost. Assignments are due the first day of school unless otherwise noted. It is a good idea not to wait until the week before school starts to do this work. A little brain sharpening during the summer goes a long way towards making the start of the new year successful as well as limiting knowledge loss over the summer. This is especially true with math.
