School Advisory Board Needs You

Are you interested in helping to advance St. Damian School? Would you like to be a change agent? We are currently seeking letters of interest for those of you that would like to sit on our School Advisory Board. The main function of the advisory board is to advise the principal and pastor on matters related to the school and to assist with marketing and fundraising. We seek members who are positive and will advocate for our school. If we have sparked interest, please send a letter of intent as to why you feel you are a good candidate to the attention of Jennifer Miller at j_miller@stdamianschool.org by April 7, 2021. Please include School Advisory Board in the subject line.

Parables, Plants, Potting Soil

We received a very generous donation for our children to be a part of the Angel Garden on the campus of St. Damian. Beginning Monday, our children will begin to grow their own seeds. Our teachers cannot wait! Please be sure to ask them about the amazing lesson.

Archdiocesan Survey

Once again, The Archdiocese would like for our parents, students, and teachers to complete the 5Essentials Survey. It won't take more than ten minutes and your feedback is greatly appreciated. Last year, we were able to use the survey to market our successes to our greater community. We also set one of our goals for the year from the survey. You'll note that many of our students wrote their own goals this year.


This all was a result of the survey.


We use your feedback in our day to day operations! In order to receive results, we do need 20% participation! We'd love it if once again we would be able to do this for the 2021-22 school year!


Thank you!

Uniform Information

We will be moving to the regular uniform in the fall. Please see the flyers as they have some deals for you.


However, we need to remind you of the uniform standards for this year. Please do not send your child to school with hoodies. Also, no extreme hairstyles or highlights. We really ask for your assistance in this matter.

The Tax Credit Scholarship Donations!

We are pleased to let you know that for the third year in a row, The Archdiocese of Chicago, will be offering a 2 for 1 match program for all donations made through Empower Illinois between December 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021.


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
