MY GRANDDAUGHTER ATTENDS HARNEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN OAK LAWN, IL SHE IS IN KINDERGARTEN AND ATTENDS THE AFTERNOON SESSION FOR 2/1/2 HRS A DAY. SHE HAS LEARNED SOOO MUCH. SHE CAN ACTUALLY READ! SHES ALSO DOING GREAT IN MATH WITH COUNTING AND HER NUMBERS! I REMEMBER IN WHEN I WAS IN KINDERGARTEN IT WAS NUMBERS,ABC'S AND NAP TIME! I TRULY AM AMAZED AT WHAT SHES LEARNED BEING THERE ONLY 2/12 HOURS A DAY! SHE HAS A WONDERFUL TEACHER NAMED MS,AYALA WHO IS GREAT WITH THE KIDS. HARNEW ELEMENTARY ALSO OFFERS A BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM THAT MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS PART OF AND IT IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL THEY TAKE THEM TO MANY MANY EDUCATIONAL PLACES.
My son is in the Pre-K program at Harnew, and I couldn't be happier with the teachers, staff, the PTA or quality of education my son is receiving. Everyone I've come in contact with has been respectful, kind, and has taken my thoughts and opinions very seriously.
it is Dec 08 and there still isn't band, art, music or any extra curricular activities at harnew. they are hoping a referendum will pass to provide funding for this but it is very unlikely at this point.
