  • St Josaphat School reviewed by a parent

    My daughter attends St. Josaphat School. We have many excellent choices in the neighborhood for private schools and a great local Chicago Public School. We chose St. Josaphat School due to its strong Catholic identity, low student to teacher ratio, rigorous academics, parental involvement and nurturing atmosphere. St. Josaphat School utilizes the Next Generation Science Standards, a solid foundation for STEM careers. This was important for us as a family as my wife and I both work in STEM related fields. St. Josaphat School s strong academics are exemplified by its two time recognition as a US Department of Education National Blue Ribbon status. St. Josaphat School encourages students to achieve their highest potential and to become morally and socially responsible individuals.

With trails taking shape as quickly as they are, it's urgent we push for improvements that create safe walking and biking options for accessing the river.

One area where we're working on better access to the Chicago River Trail is on Logan Blvd. from Rockwell Ave. to Lathrop Homes.

If you've ever biked or walked along this stretch, you know how perilous it can be for people walking and biking.

This is where we'd love your input. Are you familiar with this part of Logan? Do you live, commute through or shop in this area? What changes would you like to see?

Please take our nine-question survey and share widely with your friends, family and colleagues.

Thanks!

    I usually wait around to see where they go to see if the owner is nearby and they just are not leashed. If I do not see anyone, I will call Animal Control. I would want them to get picked up and hopefully kept safe than leaving them out to possibly get hit by a car or abused. It is sad when I see that. I hope the owner has reconnected with the dogs and it was not any abandonment situation. Thanks for reporting it, hopefully the family is on everyblock.com
