Pre K and the Pumpkin Patch

No pumpkin patch today for our Pre K, but, when you have Mrs. Ward on staff, she finds a way. Our Pre K team wanted to bring the pumpkin patch to our youngest little learners. Last night, Mr. and Mrs. Ward drove an hour and a half to pick up pumpkins so our children would still have a great experience!

Lucky Duck

Each week, we will choose a faculty or staff member who is our "Lucky Duck." We will feature our employee in our building. At the end of each week, the employee will be able to participate in an out of uniform day with his/her homeroom! If the "Lucky Duck" doesn't have a homeroom, they will pull a class from the hat for the out of uniform day.


But, we need your help! Please send anything amazing to us about any of our school employees, that we may share when we feature our stellar people!


Send your notes to j_miller@stdamianschool.org and watch for our first "Lucky Duck" on Monday!

New Uniforms

We are moving to a new uniform company in the fall. We are very excited about our new partnership with Dennis Uniforms. We will have a year to transition, so no worries if you just purchased new uniforms this year and they will still fit in the fall.


We will give you new updates as the year progresses, we just don't want you to purchase anything new throughout the year. If your child outgrows the uniform this year, call us! We have lots of extras in our building.

Volunteers and COVID - 19 Vaccine

Beginning on October 31, 2021, all volunteers, including coaches, will need to either submit a COVID-19 Vaccine Card or proof of a negative test to work with our students.


This is per the Governor's mandate for schools. Please understand that if we do not follow the Governor's mandate, we will lose our non public recognition and not be able to play any athletics among other stipulations. All schools within The Archdiocese of Chicago are following the same guidance.


Please bring your card to the main office and we will keep an excel spreadsheet indicated that you have been vaccinated.
