The Family Service Project Day in the school gym on Saturday February 2nd finished off Catholic Schools week. From 1:30-3:30 families came together to assemble care packages and Valentine's day cards for our local chapter of Meals On Wheels, the Hines Veterans' Administration Hospital and residents of the Ronald McDonald House at Loyola Hospital! Many thanks to Home & School and to Cheryl Bernard  for the pictures in our Gallery!

We were off to a great start of Catholic Schools Week until the sub-zero cold set in! Students enjoyed pajama bottoms day and an illustrator visit on Monday and dressed as superheroes on Tuesday. We have a new Geography Bee winner, too! Hopefully, mismatched clothing and crazy hair day on Friday will warm us for the faculty vs 8th grade volleyball game!
