Saints Speak from Mrs. Marshall - 8/31/2023 - Created for Community
Take a few minutes to reflect on today’s message from Pope Francis:
“Whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others, no place for the poor. God’s voice is no longer heard; the quiet joy of his love is no longer felt, and the desire to do good fades.”
God made us to be part of a community, to be people who look out for and serve one another. This quote from Pope Francis reminds us of our roles and responsibilities as part of a community. When we do things for others, we are doing them for Christ, and the end results improves our own lives as well!
It was great to see so many of you the last two evenings for Curriculum Night! Thank you for coming; hopefully you learned more about what to expect this school year and how we can work together to support your child’s continued growth and development. We are grateful to partner with you.

Fall Musical: The Wizard of Oz
We are so excited to be bringing back the musical! Plan to join us the weekend of November 17/18 for what will be an amazing performance by our very own students. All 5th-8th grade students are invited to participate; the first workshop is after school Wednesday, September 6th, in McSherry Hall, and tryouts are after school Friday, September 8th.
We will be following all guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Diocese of Joliet with regard to COVID-19. Please contact our school nurse Mrs. Fuller if you have questions, but overall please remember to practice good hygiene, including frequent hand washing and covering coughs, and stay home if you are ill. We will be using FACTS Family Portal to keep you updated on cases of COVID-19 in our school community this year. This information can be found by clicking Resource Documents from the left menu; you should then see COVID Case Tracking 2023-2024 as the first attachment.
