Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy Catholic Schools Week to you! Annually, we take the last week of January to celebrate what Catholic schools mean to our faith and our church. Catholic Schools have the unique opportunity to nurture spiritual and moral values within our students. They are a place where God’s truth, beauty, and goodness is taught throughout the curriculum and permeate the day. We are so glad to celebrate Catholic Schools Week 2020 here at St. Isidore Catholic School.
Geography Bee – Congratulations to our Geography Bee class representatives who participated in the school wide National Geographic Geography Bee this morning. Mattie Rubino, Nathan Ciolino, Ryan Callender, Ezra Paladino, Danny Mahoney, Alyza Adajar, David Callender, Matthew Wlodek, Owen Kolozsy, and Pawel Kulasik all represented us well! Congratulations to Matthew Wlodek who is the St. Isidore Geography Bee champion, Ezra Paladino who took 2nd, and Owen Kolozsy who came in 3rd place. We are so proud of all of you!
2020-2021 Registration- Registration for next school year is open on School Speak and coming in strong! We encourage all families to complete the registration process as soon as you can. The more accurate our enrollment numbers are, the more effective our planning for next school year will be.
FACTS Tuition Assistance – The Catholic Education Foundation of the Diocese of Joliet distributes hundreds of scholarships each year. The CEF wants to help families ease the sacrifice of the cost of a Catholic School education. If you will be needing Diocesan or Parish financial assistance for next year please complete the online FACTS form at www.factsmgt.com by March 1st. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
McTeacher Night – Thank you to everyone who came to McDonald’s last night for our annual McTeacher’s Night. It was so much fun! Whether you visited thru the drive thru or joined us in the restaurant, we are thankful you came to be a part of the SIS community. Beyond the benefit of coming together as the SIS community, we were able to raise $1,124.58 for our Common Good fund.
Fun Food Friday- Sporty’s is our next FFF on February 14th. The order form went home earlier this week and is also posted on School Speak. Order forms are due next Thursday, February 6th.
