MRS. KINEL EARNS ARCHDIOCESAN AWARD

Our school’s Deputy Principal earned the Christifideles Award on behalf of her parish, St. Eugene.
Mrs. Kinel was on the School Advisory Committee from 2010 to 2015 and president for five of those years.
She took on leadership positions for many of the parish fundraisers
and was involved in their new technology committee.

We are lucky to have such a dedicated servant of the church as part of our school’s leadership team!
Congratulations to Mrs. Kinel!

TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIPS

More progress is being made on the Illinois state tax credit scholarships. While there is still much that remains in question, you can keep up with all the latest developments on this on the Archdiocese of Chicago website (url address below).

This bill will help families who could not otherwise afford a Catholic education by granting scholarships of between 50%-100% of the tuition. It will also help some of our current families.

If you know any family who might benefit from these scholarships, please share this information with them. Applications, once available in early December, will be reviewed and scholarships awarded on a first come first served basis, for those who qualify.

As well, as a benefactor, you would receive a tax benefit when contributing to a scholarship granting organization.

CLIP AND EARN

Before you toss that General Mills cereal box into recycling,
check to see if it has a little pink BOX TOP$ logo, and it if does,
please tear it off and save it for our school!
The BOX TOP$ program is an easy way for parishioners and friends
to help our school earn money for much needed supplies!
Collect your BOX TOP$ in a baggie and leave them in the designated box in the back of the church!

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!

Do you have a love for reading?
Do you enjoy interacting with children?
Do you have some free time during the day?

If you answered yes to all three of these questions, than we would LOVE for you to

If you are interested in volunteering,
