Immaculate Conception School wins Blue Ribbon Award

Let's take a brief timeout from this blog's recent coverage of judicial candidacies to celebrate an academic achievement:

Immaculate Conception School, on Chicago's Northwest Side, is one of seven schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago to win a Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education. Here is a link to the press release issued by the Archdiocese congratulating all of the winning schools. Of the prize-winning Catholic schools, only Immaculate Conception School is located in the City of Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports this morning that one Chicago public school also won the award, Horace Greeley Elementary School near Sheridan and Halsted.

The award for Immaculate Conception School is particularly gratifying for me because my wife is a teacher there and each of my five children graduated from that school.
