Hello Crusaders! Only ONE WEEK until the first annual DP Strong Walkathon! Here is your weekly update:

Mrs. LeTourneau would like you to wear your gym uniforms and DP Spirit Wear on Friday, October 1 to be comfy for the walk!

So far, here is what you've earned:

-a free McDonald's ice cream cone, just for registering!

-an Out of Uniform Day once you complete the walk!

-a Homework Free Week!

Because you've all been so amazing, FSA has decided to DOUBLE the reward. BOTH the classroom that is #1 on the leaderboard for progress towards their class goal AND the class that raises the most money overall will win a PIZZA PARTY, courtesy of FSA.


By Class Goal--

1st place Grade 4 Team Southerton!

2nd place Pre-K 4 Team Mahalingham!

3rd place Grade 2 Team Butler!

By Amount Raised--

1st place Grade 4 Team Southerton!

2nd place Grade 8 Team Sautariello!

3rd place Grade 2 Team Butler!

Looks like Team Southerton is the team to beat!

Please take five minutes to share your Crusader's web page with family, friends, and social media friends too. Though we have lots of registrants, we also have many who have registered and haven't yet shared. It's quick and easy: No donation is too small, and every little bit helps.

Thank you for your constant support, and stay tuned for more updates on volunteering and walk details next week!

Traveling out of state? We need to know**...

We follow the Chicago Emergency Travel Order, which is updated every Tuesday, for domestic travel regardless of whether the traveler resides in the city of Chicago, Cook County or Lake County. ​​​​​​​

Domestic travelers to an “Orange state” on the Chicago Emergency Travel Order mapmust adhere to:

  • 10-day quarantine upon return OR
  • Pre-arrival negative test (within 72 hours prior to return arrival to the state) with strict masking, physical distancing and avoidance of in-person gatherings (separate from school attendance). Any test administered by a 3rd-party is sufficient; however, a self-administered test is not acceptable. Archdiocesan schools should accept any negative test prior to school attendance including tests upon return to the state.

**Please watch your email as this may be subject to change

Know someone who needs assistance?

There are many reasons people may need help right now. Maybe it's job loss or illness. Whatever the reason for the need, the Society of St. Vincent De Paul can help.

If you, or anyone you know, could use some help, please call the Divine Infant Rectory 708-865-8071 or the Divine Providence Rectory 708-562-3364

All information is kept strictly confidential.


Just a reminder that masks are required to be worn by all of our students and staff. They need to be ONE solid color. Masks must be worn covering the nose and the mouth. Most of our students are doing a great job and don't even mind wearing them! Some students, however, are struggling with this more. It tends to be our middle school school students more than others. For this reason, a student that is not wearing their mask properly will be given an out of uniform slip each time they are not properly wearing their mask. Three slips and they will receive a detention. Detentions will be assigned and will take place after school.

Please see below from the CDC on proper face masks!

Please send your child to school EACH DAY with 2 clean and well fitting face masks
