We want to invite all PreK through 2nd Graders to join our 8th Graders for Leaders Are Readers via Google Meet, a literacy reading program designed just for them. Parents may log in their young scholars that day at 3:00 p.m. here:

Mrs. Rivas and Mrs. Sypole will be our teacher moderators. We will offer the program twice per month. 8th Graders can earn Confirmation service hours for their participation. For more information, please email Mrs. Gonzalez at

School Picture Day


Please have your students dress in Sunday best attire. Order forms came home this week and should be PREPAID only to protect students and staff. You can easily order and pay online by visiting the Van Gogh School Photographers website. Our School Code is 20031601. Or you may call 847-382-2282 x7 and use that same code. Then there's no need to send anything else with your children on Picture Day--well except for their smiles, of course!

Dress Down Day


All students who have been complying with dress code will earn a free dress down day in honor of breast cancer awareness.
