CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2021
Last Day of School, Friday, June 4, 10:30 a.m. Dismissal
The following novels will need to be completed by all students by August 23, 2021.
If your child/ren are not in these grades, and you want them to take advantage of continuous reading throughout the summer months, please contact your child's teacher for some ideas.
We always encourage baskets of books in the backseat of the car to read while you are on trips either to another state or the grocery store.
If your child received daily medications or has an "as needed" medication at school, you received those medication forms for next year in March. You will be able to complete the forms at your doctor's appointment over the summer. Those forms may also be turned in at any time.
Parents/guardians please pick up your medication. Mrs. Haneberg will not be distributing any medication directly to the students.
From Mrs. Haneberg:
I wish everyone a safe and fun filled summer! Thank you for your cooperation and support this year and throughout my time at St. Damian School!
Your child will be bringing his/her scores home within the next week.
We have included a few documents on our website that will help you to understand the scores. Please contact your child's teacher if you'd like to discuss them or have any further questions.

Totus Tuus at St. Damian
The Totus Tuus program aims to inspire young people to long for holiness, develop a deep desire for conversion and personally renew their faith with a stronger prayer life. Through evangelization and catechesis, Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to the sacrifices and blessings of the various Christian vocations.
For those already familiar with Totus Tuus, we must share that student volunteers are not permitted this summer as the Archdiocese permits only adult volunteers that have successfully completed background checks/compliance requirements.
That being said - YOU are needed to help us during camps this year at St. Damian! Please contact Mrs. Plesha right away at 708-687-7778 to volunteer.
The Tax Credit Scholarship Donations!
What does this mean? A $500 donation has a tremendous impact, with the 75% tax credit, you will receive on the donation and this match. It will have a net cost of $125 to you and will provide $1,500 dollars in scholarships for low-income families.
I am pleased to let you know that for the 2020-21 school year, we received over $100,000 in gifts. This allowed 16 of our students to attend St. Damian School. However, there were still 27 students on our wait list. Please follow this link to learn more: https://schools.archchicago.org/tax-credit-scholarships
