The dates have been set for the state scholarship application process to open:


Empower Illinois - Tuesday, January 15, 2019, 7:00 P.M.

Big Shoulders - Tuesday, January 22, 2019 (time to be determined)


It is recommended that families apply with BOTH Scholarship Granting Organizations. On application days, St. Ann School will open its doors to welcome parents who do not have reliable internet access at home or at work. We will have Chromebooks and personnel available to assist. The time stamp is critically important, so we encourage you to submit your application from a location where you have the fastest internet speed.

Congratulations Ms. McGovern & PreK! #deckthedoors '18

PreK won our annual #deckthedoors competition with a total of 292 likes! Ms. McGovern received a $100 gift card to United Art & Education so she can buy some fun things for the class. Congratulations!

Love Those Box Tops!

Our next Box Tops for Education Challenge is underway! This time around, the prize is a basket full of goodies! What kind of goodies? It will be a surprise! Students will receive one entry into the prize drawing for every 25 Box Tops they turn in: 50 Box Tops earns two entries, 100 Box Tops gets you four entries, and so on. It only takes one entry to win, but why not increase your chances and go for two or more? The deadline for submissions is February 7, and our grand prize winner will be announced on Valentine's Day. Print out your collection sheets here, or enclose neatly clipped Box Tops in Ziploc baggies--be sure your child's name and class are on all submissions. Please note: We cannot accept expired Box Tops, which could affect your entries, so please make sure yours are current.

Tax Credit Scholarship Matching Gift Program

If you or anyone you know likes to take advantage of the tax credits you can get from year-end giving, please refer to the Archdiocese of Chicago's Tax Credit Scholarship information page. Not only will donations to the program made before the end of the year be TRIPLED by the 2-for-1 matching program, but your entire Illinois state tax liability could be eliminated! Plus, donors can designate which school receives their funds, so the money can all stay right here to help our families. Print a fact sheet here to give to your loved ones.
