  • Owen Elementary Scholastic Academy reviewed by a parent

    My son attend Owen School four years and will be in the 3rd grade this fall. My son loves this school and want to stay until graduate from 8th grade. The school has a great staff. The teachers works with the kids and do a great job. I love the part they encourage kids to read and record their minutes on reading log sheet. The end of school year rewards the children. The school is always neat and clean. The school teach the children how to get along with each other. I have never seen kids fighting in the classroom or outside. Dr.Griggs is the Principal and Mrs. Morris is the Assistant Principal they cares about the children education. The parents are great they always involve with children education. The school is on level 1 reading and math as scores are very high. When the children graduate from this school goes to top high school in Chicago. I love this school and will always support th his school. You looking for a great school this is best school on the south side of Chicago.

    Did you find the family of this husky? If not, there's quite a few listed missing from Chicago on the facebook page: Lost Dogs Illinois. They also have a website that is easier to search but it is not as up to the minute like their facebook page: lostdogsillinois.org

  • Any updates on either of these dogs? I've been looking through the albums on Lost Dogs and there are a few huskies listed as missing. Also some that have been found. Please check their Facebook page!

Some advice please neighbors

I'm having my roof replaced and was checking the City of Chicago web page re building permits. It indicates that I DO need a permit if the roof has a slope less than 5-in-12 but I DON'T need a permit if it's a shingle roof with slope of 5 in 12 or steeper on residential buildings with max. of 3 dwelling units & 3 stories. (That seems kind of backwards to me.) What does "5 in 12" mean? I have a raised ranch bungalow style home. Here's the link: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/bldgs/supp_info/learn_when_a_permitisneeded.html

Hello
Do you have a teen attending Sarah E Goode or know someone who does?
Are you concerned about the education and activities available for our youth?

The reason for my post is a simple request but a difficult task ........
Sarah E Goode has an Olympic Size Swimming Pool that is NOT utiized. The school has been in operation for 3 years and for 3 years has maintained the pool but it is NOT available for students to use. I have not formally approached to the school board but have been advised that the pool issues are political. The City of Chicago is screaming for money to fund activities to keep kids safe. There is money to maintain a beautiful pool yet no one can use it. I believe Sarah E Goode is missing out on giving students another sport option for scholarships and is also missing out on recognition and sponsors for a good swim team.
If you can provide some insight, please comment.
I will formally approach the school board and the parent committee once school starts.
Thx.

  • Ms. KAK Concerned Citizen

    Get started now. Tell the alderman and the press. Bogan opens pool to students and the public. How not opening a pool is political. We paid for it. The pool should be used.
