Gearing up for our Gala!

Thank you so much for the many of you who have been soliciting organizations, choreographing dances, coordinating logistics, and overall just lending help in all ways to ensure a successful gala celebration. We hope that you have purchased your tickets and are looking forward to this event. More information is available in your Friday folders.

Next week, St. Damian School will be launching a new registration system. This will come to you via email. In order to cover the cost of this enhancement, we will have an increase in the registration fee. With careful consideration and research, your School Advisory Board and Administration agreed to raise the cost $25.00 per family. It is our hopes that this system will be easier and more convenient for all involved in the process. You will receive further family instructions in your email.

It's been another busy week at St. Damian School. Our students are rehearsing for concerts, studying Black History Month, and planning the 8th grade weekend in Washington, D.C. We have so much to be thankful! God is good!

Junior High Parents!

The deadline to sign up for the Archdiocesan Wide Field Trip to St. Rita High School is Monday, February 10, 2020. We need to RSVP, therefore, no late registrations will be accepted. Please also note, this is a regular school day. If your child will not be in attendance, he/she will be expected to attend school unless there is an excused absence.

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.
