Victory

Shoneice Reynolds: CPS Board voted not to close our school on Wednesday, May 22,2013.

We the students, parents, alumni, community residents, business owners and residents of the City of Chicago are committed to keeping Marcus Garvey Math and Science School open, we are committed to holding all stakeholders accountable to our children in the community. Marcus Garvey Math and Science School is a neighborhood school with Magnet School expectations. Closing Marcus Garvey will hinder the stability of our children; affect them academically and place them in unnecessary danger. I urge you today to stand with Marcus Garvey School so we can continue to be an academic, social and community force in the Washington Heights Community.

To:
The closing of Marcus M. Garvey Math and Science School, Shoneice Reynolds, Parent
Stop the closing of Marcus Garvey Math and Science School

Sincerely,

      Feeling comfortable in school is necessary for a child's sense of well-being and ability to tune into learning and taking pride in their work.
