Chess Club Volunteers

We are very interested in starting a Chess Club for our older students. If any of you would like to help run this club, we would welcome you. There are various competitions at the high schools and would like to compete.

Please Watch Your Inboxes for Archdiocesan News Regarding COVID-19

We follow COVID guidance from The Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic Schools. Please note, this guidance may be a bit more conservative than what is distributed by the CDC. We were able to keep our schools open last year because we were very conservative.

There will be new guidance coming to your inboxes from The Archdiocese of Chicago on a regular basis. We will also include it in newsletters, but, we ask that you read all communication from The Archdiocese of Chicago.

Also, be aware, that when the Governor places mandates on public and non-public schools we must follow that guidance to continue with our non public recognition. Masks must be worn indoors at all times.

Damian Mania Time!

Your Damian Mania tickets will come home today in your Friday folders!

This is your one MANDATORY fundraiser

What is Damian Mania?

In a majority of Catholic Schools across the country, tuition is the primary source of revenue. Tuition does not always cover the cost of educating the whole child. St. Damian School implemented Damian Mania as a way to "bridge the gap." The benefit of Damian Mania is that it also has the opportunity to benefit you in more ways than just helping to provide a quality education for your child.

How does Damian Mania Work?

Grades K- 8:

You will receive 25 $10 raffle tickets. Twenty five tickets are your mandatory amount that we you will be required to sell. You may choose to purchase them yourself or sell them to family members, friends, and neighbors. Once you sell all of the tickets it is very important that you send a check in to pay for the tickets. NO CASH will be accepted.

Pre K:

Students in three half or full days receive 15 tickets, Pre K who attend 4 or 5 days will receive 25 tickets as well. You may choose to purchase them yourself or sell them to family members, friends, and neighbors. Once you sell all of the tickets it is very important that you send a check in to pay for the tickets. NO CASH will be accepted.

What Can I Win?

Beginning on September 9 and running through October 14, 2021, we will draw two weekly winners and they will be awarded $50 cash. These winners' names will go back in the hat, so they have the opportunity to win twice!

The large drawing will be held on Friday, October 29, 2021. More information to follow on this event! The grand prize is $4,000.

Are there other incentives?

If you sell more than 45 tickets, we will credit $100 towards your tuition. Sell 75 tickets and receive a $250 credit. For every ticket you sell over your 25 tickets, you will be deducted $5 on your FACTS ticket account on November 5, 2021.

What if I choose not to participate?

If you do not turn in your money by October 22, 2021 you will be charged $350 towards your tuition.

Operating Framework For the 2021-22 School Year

Please review the following guidance from the Archdiocese of Chicago regarding our operating procedures for the year. Please also note that this is always subject to change.


Please also note, that while we are not requiring vaccinations, when we do transition out of masks for vaccinated individuals, we will need to have the vaccination card on file. If your child is vaccinated, please bring a copy of the card to the office, so that we may place it in his/her confidential file. Also, when we transition, vaccinated individuals do not need to quarantine if they are a close exposure.
