  • St Constance School reviewed by a parent

    St. Constance is a great, loving school. Class sizes are small and teachers really care about the well-being and development of their students. Coming from a bilingual home, we were afraid how our kids would adapt to a new environment but St. Constance did deliver. Thanks to smaller group teachers have more possibilities to work one on one with students. Besides great teaching program my daughters have gained confidence and are encouraged to use manners all day every day. We absolutely love this school. The faculty and other parents reached out to our family immediately to include us in activities and to get to know everyone. On a side note St. Constance principal is always available for parent meetings. I m quite sure she start her day at 4am or maybe she never leaves? Bottom line is if you have a question rest assure main office along with principal will be there to answer them. I highly recommend it!

Michigan Avenue to get first two downtown red light cameras

In September, cameras were installed at the junction of Central, Milwaukee and Foster avenues. Three other potential locations are still going through a community review process.

    Michigan Avenue to get first two downtown red light cameras
    The Magnificent Mile is known for the Lights Festival during the holiday season, but it's about to get a less joyous, year-round reputation for a different set of lights along Michigan Avenue. Starting Monday, the stoplights at Michigan and Ontario Street will have red light cameras, which are used to issue $100 citations to the owners of vehicles that blow red lights.
