Say a Prayer and Hug your Kids

Tragically, two students from Aurora Catholic Central High School died in a car accident last night while traveling to the Chargers’ Sectional Boys Basketball Game against Marengo at Rochelle. Please say a prayer for the families of these two students and all those at Aurora Catholic as they deal with this tragic loss.

Research Fair Tonight!

Our St. Joe's Campus will be hosting its annual Research Fair tonight from 6:00-7:00pm. Projects by our students will be on display in Berg Hall and in the gym. The 5th and 6th grade students will be available for further information about their reports and displays. Come and see the great work done by our students--and learn something new from the researchers themselves!

Congrats to the Forreston Cardinals!

The boys basketball team won the Super-Sectional game last night and advanced to the State Finals on Friday and Saturday. The team will play Mounds (Meridian) on Friday at 12:15pm in Peoria's Carver Arena. #NUICStrong

Prom Draw . March 20 . 1:30pm

Aquin Prom Draw will be held in the gymnasium and is open to parents and family of prom attendees as well as to the Aquin family as there is more room for guests.

Please enter through the GYM LOBBY and wait there quietly as students are in class.

Do not use the Galena Street entrance.

The doors to the gym will open at 1:10.
If you are here sooner, we will ask you to wait in the gym lobby until we are ready. Please be respectful of this as students will be in class through 2:50 on this day.

Please sit on the visitor side of the gym.

Because we are holding it in the gym, everyone will have a good view from the bleachers. Feel free to bring your camera or video camera. Aquin staff will be taking photos and videos to be posted to Smugmug and Youtube.

Parents/Guardians of Prom Attendees:
Please remind your Prom attendee to bring everything needed for Prom Draw to school on Friday morning. It is not the responsibility of the Student Office to gather items that students forgot and deliver them. It is the responsibility of the student to bring everything to school including, flowers, blanket, gift bag, balloons, etc. We have a normal school day for all of the other students not attending Prom in grades 7 through 12 and we need to be respectful of that.
