St. Damian School

Lancer Home Connection

We are back in the swing of things at St. Damian School. This week, we found ourselves busy testing. Our K-2 grade students participated in benchmark assessments with the IReady program, while our 3-8th grade students completed the ACT Interim Aspire. In the following weeks, our teachers will assess the data and determine different strategies to be sure our students are meeting and exceeding the benchmarks within their given subject areas.


We are very busy in preparations for our Catholic Schools Week! We look forward to you joining us as we "Pack the Pews" at the 11:30 a.m. mass on Sunday, January 26, 2020!

Catholic Schools Week Family Project

Your child/ren will be bringing home a blank family crest. We would love it if your family would decorate the crest with symbols that represent your family. We will proudly display these in our hallways during Catholic Schools Week for all to enjoy. The key component in our Catholic Schools, is you, our families! We want to celebrate you! Please return these to the school by Friday, January 17, 2020. The first homeroom to turn in all of their shields receives an OUT OF UNIFORM DAY!

Cold and Flu Season is Here.

As the flu season is here, please know that we are keeping our building as clean as possible, we have gone through lots of Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, and Lysol. Along with that, we are reminding the children to wash their hands regularly and eat lots of healthy foods to keep up their resistance!


Mrs. Haneberg has put together a wonderful document for you to refer to when it comes to the flu!

Donate to TCS!

Please consider a donation in the form of a Tax Credit Scholarship! Remember to indicate that your donation should be restricted to St. Damian School.


Several donors have partnered with the scholarship granting organization Empower Illinois and the Archdiocese of Chicago to create a matching gift pool.


Every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between now and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from this pool (limitations apply). The program will end when all matching funds have been depleted or on Feb. 29, 2020, whichever comes first.


A $5,000 donation will have a tremendous impact. With the 75 percent tax credit you receive on the donation and this match, it will have a net cost to you of $1,250 and will provide $15,000 in scholarships for low-income families.


After April 1, 2020, any matching gift program funds that are not awarded at a designated school will be reallocated to low-income students at schools with unmet demand.


We invite you to visit the link below to learn more and triple your donation.
