John C. Coonley School’s giving spirit has grown outside the walls of Coonley. #CoonleyCares
provides an opportunity for our community to
support CPS students in need throughout the city. As part of the Coonley
Parent Organization (including Friends of Coonley and
the PTO), #CoonleyCares is dedicated to educational enrichment for all students. #CoonleyCares donations support the following efforts:
Literacy: Reilly Elementary School, located
in the Avondale neighborhood, does not have
adequate funds for library books for its students. Reilly's enrollment
is 94.3% low income and is in great need of more
books to meet students' basic literacy needs. You
can also support Reilly's library by buying the books here: Reilly Wishlist (these are sent directly to the school).
of Music is a local organization that helps more than 7,000 students in
more than 30 Chicago Public Schools gain exposure to music education.
Each week, Foundations
of Music provides over 550 CPS students with direct music instruction.
