Tax Credit Scholarship Donations
Even more exciting is that right now, donors can see their donation GROW! A fantastic program through the Archdiocese of Chicago allows a person to give their donation (again, hopefully designated to Divine Providence School) and it will be matched 2 to 1 (donations must be made through the eSGO- Empower Illinois)! For example, if a generous person were to donate $1000 dollars, they would received a $750 credit from their Illinois State Taxes and the donation would match 2:1, making it total $3000!

School Advisory Board
What about the weather?
Typically, you would get notified about students not coming to school through several different forms of communication- email, text message and phone call. While we try to give as much notice as possible if we think the school will be closed, it can come as late as one hour before school starts. ***Just because students do not report to school, doesn't mean they don't have work to do! Per an earlier newsletter, we have introduced "Alternative Learning Days". Students will have work either posted online or sent in an email regarding what work needs to be done. This link will take you back to beginning of the school year about "Alternative Learning Days"
School dismisses at 3PM on December 20, 2019 and begins Christmas Break until we return on January 6, 2020! After care is available on December 20th.
