Weekly Update from Your Alderman – June 16, 2017

Weekly Update from Your Alderman: School Year Wrap-Up, SENN-Sational, Dining Out for Swift at Flaco’s Tacos, CDOT Pilot Neighborhood Network Program, and Happy Father’s Day
June 16, 2017
Dear Neighbor:

School is almost out for the summer. The success of our local schools is critical to the safety, stability, and vibrancy of our community. This has been a challenging year, but there are many things to celebrate, due to the hard work of our principals, teachers, students, and parents. Please see below for a special section outlining highlights from the 2016-17 school year in the 48th Ward. I hope everyone has a happy and safe summer.

Join Chinese Mutual Aid Association this afternoon for an end of the school year party with PlayStreets. There will be family-friendly activities — including basketball, jumping jack, soccer, giant board games, and more — on Winthrop between Argyle and Winona today from 3-6pm. Click here for more information.

Earlier this month, my staff, Senn High School students, and Mike Cullinane from Senn’s Digital Journalism program distributed Senn-sational posters to over 100 businesses throughout the community. These posters highlight six Senn seniors who exemplify the diverse, creative, and driven population at our neighborhood high school. Thank you to the businesses who are actively supporting our local schools and giving a voice to teens in our community.

Today Flaco’s Tacos and Gordo’s, located at 1116 W. Granville Ave. under the Granville El, are donating 10% of all proceeds to Swift Elementary School, 5900 N. Winthrop. Consider stopping by for a taco, margarita, or a custom ice cream bar to support a new local business and a neighborhood school.

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has selected the 48th Ward to participate in a pilot program to develop a neighborhood network of bikeways, ensuring residents can safely navigate throughout the community on their bikes. This is an innovative approach to bikeway planning and I am very proud that CDOT has chosen our community for this initiative. I hope the 48th Ward can be a model neighborhood when it comes to multi-modal transportation. Please join us for a community meeting to begin the planning process on Saturday, June 24, 10am, at the Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway. This meeting will be led by representatives of CDOT and will begin with a presentation by CDOT followed by small group breakout sessions. To help our office and CDOT prepare for the meeting, please RSVP to maia48thward@gmail.com if you plan to attend the meeting.

Summer office hours have begun at my Ward Service Office, 5533 N. Broadway. On Tuesdays we are open until 7pm, and my staff can assist you with ward issues. I will be available to meet during this time by appointment only.

I’d like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father-figures in our community. Please celebrate locally at one of our great bars, restaurants, or parks.

Have a great weekend.

Sincerely,
Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward


School Year Successes in the 48th Ward

Goudy Technology Academy, 5120 N. Winthrop
Goudy hosted family nights throughout the year that provided hands-on learning activities focusing on health, science, technology, engineering, and math. This spring students performed a production of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and the Goudy rock band had everybody jamming during their spring concert. Goudy students enjoyed field trips to such places as Trees for Tomorrow in Wisconsin, the state capitol in Springfield, and Lorado Taft in DeKalb. Through grants and partnerships, students had opportunities to participate in enriching after school classes, dance, and various sports. Goudy kids scored fifth in the City of Chicago in the Hour of Code contest and won thousands of dollars worth of prizes in the first annual Uptown Hack-a-Thon.

Hayt Elementary School, 1518 W. Granville
Not only have Hayt School’s students been engaged in the classroom during the 2016-2017 school year, but students and families have also been engaged during after-school hours. This year Hayt School staff and PTA organized a Cultural Festival, which displayed the dozens of cultures Hayt students represent. In the spring, Hayt School hosted a Spring Festival that celebrated dreams through art and poetry. With the summer upon us, Hayt School wishes all of our 2017 the best of luck in their future endeavors and hopes everyone has a relaxing and joy-filled break!

McCutcheon Elementary School, 4865 N. Sheridan
McCutcheon has had a wonderful year partnering with the community to engage in the many gifts local organizations have to offer. On top of winning a $25,000 grant from Northwestern University, developing a coding program and creating a fine-arts after school program, McCutcheon recently received a scholarship through a fundraiser called Run the World. On Saturday, June 10, several McCutcheon staff and students ran a 5K to promote peace and unity. Similar races will be organized in six other countries. The race was in honor of a young man lost to gun violence. Each race raises funds for a local non-profit or school. The organizer of the race decided to give the profits to McCutcheon. In memory of the young man who lost his life, funds will be used to build the McCutcheon athletic program.

Northside Catholic Academy, 6126 N. Glenwood
Northside Catholic Academy’s Annual Curriculum Fair is a beloved tradition that celebrates all the learning, creativity and discovery that takes place throughout the school year. There was so much to explore and enjoy at this year’s event, including an art exhibit, special musical performances, grade-specific projects like the Marble Roller Coasters, as well as a variety of science, writing and math projects. NCA students, faculty, staff and parents honored and said good-bye to Rev. Dominic Grassi of St. Gertrude Parish as he led his last mass at NCA on June 8. After 11 years as President of NCA, Rev. Grassi is retiring. Over the years, he has nurtured hundreds of students to grow in faith, character and intellect. NCA’s 8th grade graduates will be attending top area high schools including Jones College Prep, Lane Tech, Whitney Young, Walter Peyton, Senn, Loyola College Prep, Notre Dame, St. Ignatius, and DePaul College Prep.

Peirce Elementary School, 1423 W. Bryn Mawr
Peirce Elementary School completed the final steps before being authorized in the Primary Years IB Program (PK-5th Grades) – students now have access to a PK-12th grade IB education with Senn HS being the continuation of the program. For the first time ever, Peirce sent a group of 7th and 8th grade students to Washington D.C. All K-8 classrooms worked alongside an arts partner – this year, along with support from Grants, Friends of Peirce, Hopleaf and State Senator Steans we were able to fund partnerships with the Music Institute of Chicago, Raven Theatre, Dream Big, Lookingglass Theater, Barrel of Monkeys, Giordano Dance, Argument Centered Education and Writer’s Theatre. Parent leadership continued to grow as more opportunities were offered around parent education, topics included Math, Restorative Approaches to Discipline and Behavioral Health supports and Navigating the Special Education process.

Sacred Heart Schools, 6250 N. Sheridan
Sacred Heart Schools celebrated their 140th anniversary this year, and as part of the celebration, Sheridan between Granville and Rosemont was dedicated to Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat, the founder of the Religious of the Sacred Heart. SHS celebrated 8th grade graduation earlier this week, with graduates moving on to top high schools across the city.

Senn High School, 5900 N. Glenwood
Senn High School continued to make great strides this year and is poised to welcome its largest incoming Freshman class in the fall. Graduating seniors received over $19 million in scholarship awards, and 98% of the Class of 2017 was accepted to college or university. Senn’s sports made headlines, with wrestler Yvette Morales making Illinois state history as the first female wrestler to participate in the IHSA tournament and wrestling coach Angela Kus was featured in a Chicago Tribune article highlighting female coaches of male sports teams. Senn Arts continued to receive citywide acclaim this year: Senior Ireon Roach took the individual title champion award for the second year in a row at the ‘Louder Than a Bomb’ spoken word competition; two students participated in the esteemed August Wilson Monologue Contest; and Senn’s band received a Superior rating at the CPS Band and Orchestra festival.

Swift Elementary School, 5900 N. Winthrop 
Swift is the most diverse school in the Chicago Public School District and actively celebrates the diversity of its population. In light of executive orders imposing travel restrictions made earlier this year, the Swift community came together to hold a Celebration of Edgewater Unity Rally in February to show support for immigrant and refugee families. Renovations were completed on the auditorium, bringing the 100 year-old facility into the 21st century. This year’s spring musical production of Cinderella was a great success. Student worked on The Identity Project, and art/literacy integration project that highlighted each child’s unique qualities. Students also participated in an arts/literature Integration with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, working on various projects in writing, music and visual art all with the overarching theme of “Courage.”

Public Safety Update
Free Burglary Assessment
The 20th and 24th Police District are offering free home burglary assessments for our neighborhoods. We would like to do up to 5 assessments at any given time.
This is a free service provided by the Police Districts.  Neighbors are invited walk together during the assessment as each property may present a new opportunity for a burglar to gain access to your home.  Identifying these various ways a burglar can come into a home will help everyone be a little more prepared and safer by pinpointing distinct methods to secure vulnerabilities.

Please contact Marko Zaric in my office if you would like to participate in this free service. He can be reached at 773-784-5277 or Marko@48thward.org. This is for residential multi-unit buildings as well as single family homes.

Operation Help a Hero

Currently, there are hundreds of homeless veterans in Chicago. When a veteran leaves a shelter or transitional housing and moves to a permanent residence, they often do not have the basic items needed to setup a home. These are things that you and I take for granted, but the men and women who bravely fought to defend our freedom often go without. Alderman Osterman is collecting household items to support our vets as they move into permanent homes. Click here to view a complete list of items that will be accepted at the 48th Ward Office from Memorial Day through July 4th.


Peterson Garden Project – Feasts of Resistance

Resistance doesn’t only take the form of protests and marches—it’s in the food we share, the stories we tell, the gardens we grow. Food shapes culture and conflict shapes food—that’s the premise of Peterson Garden Project’s new Feasts of Resistance cooking class series starting May 25. Explore, cook, and eat iconic dishes from around the world—Burma to Ethiopia, Syria to Haiti, and beyond—that were created or affected by social or political unrest. Sign up for one class or all six at http://bit.ly/PGP_Feasts.

Proceeds from this hands-on cooking series fund PGP’s summer programming for teen refugee girls in GirlForward, dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution.

The locations featured in the classes highlight the countries of GirlForward participants. This summer, PGP will be working with Camp GirlForward campers to share stories from their countries as they garden and cook together. Each week, girls will tend and harvest herbs and vegetables for class, cook a dish focused on that week’s region, and sit down at the end of class to share what they’ve made.

Feasts of Resistance is just one way Peterson Garden Project supports refugees in our community. Learn more about all of PGP’s refugee programming, including garden scholarships and free cooking education, and donate to help ensure everyone is welcome at the table at http://bit.ly/PGP_EveryoneisWelcome.
