Angels Among Us

The Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools theme for the 2019/20 school year will be Angels Among Us. As we live out our educational ministry, we know we are surrounded by many Angels. Some of these Angels are heavenly, and they provide us with inspiration, guidance, and protection. Other Angels are earthly . . . our Catholic schools benefit deeply by the talents and support of our dedicated teachers, volunteers, and other supporters. We know that Angels are present throughout scripture, from the proclamations of the old testament to the celebration of Christ’s birth at the nativity.

Head Room Parents

Many of you signed up with your teachers already to be Room Parents. Thank you so much for that! Your children will reap the benefits, plus, they are so excited to see their moms, dads, and other special people helping out. Each grade does need to have one Head Room Parent to organize the teacher's special goings-on, manage the volunteer efforts, and represent the class from time to time. Our Head Room Parents will receive the full 15-hour volunteer credit for the year! Would you be able to fill that role for one of your children's classes? 1st-4th grades still do not have head room parents. Claim your spot at the links below:
