Who Didn't See This Coming?
Chicago Public Schools students this year posted record attendance figures on the first day of school -- an all-time high of 94.1 percent showed up.
That surpassed last year's record of 93.7 percent, and continued the upward trend since 2004, when less than 92 percent of students were coming on the first day.
Since the Olympics will be awarded on 02 October, the mayor would like to take this opportunity to point out that the following events will also be record setters this year in order to impress the Olympic Committee:
- The Chicago Marathon will have a record number of participants and fans,
- the Thanksgiving Day parade will be crowded beyond belief,
- the Macy's window displays should be spectacular,
- and the Disney Christmas Parade will be out of this world with record setting numbers of attendees from 78 nations.
